This conceptual design rendering provided by SpaceX shows a Hyperloop passenger transport capsule, at a station ready to take on passengers, the core of a high-speed system that billionaire Elon Musk suggested two years ago, that would zoom passenger capsules through elevated tubes at the speed of sound. The 400-mile trip between Los Angeles and San Francisco would take a half-hour. Musks company, SpaceX, announced Monday, June 15, 2015 that it plans to build a one-mile test track next to its headquarters in Hawthorne, Calif. The company will hold a competition there next year with teams testing designs for Hyperloop passenger pods.
