Hyperloop 'test tubes'

Elon Musk's Hyperloop Technologies got sections of their depressurized transport tubes ready in a Nevada desert. Passenger pods fit and 'levitate' inside the tubes, without air resistance can travel at speeds over 700 mph. Travel from Los Angeles to San Francisco in 35 minutes. His system test is a parallel proof-of-technology proposal to compete with multi-billion California bullet train project. Elon Musk has completely open-sourced the project and encourages even individuals, companies and investors to make the Hyperloop system a reality. He hopes his system up and moving passengers by 2020.

First subway didn't have enough backing...
