Elon Musk’s Hyperloop idea getting ridiculed
Billionaire Elon Musk recently announced an ambitious plan for the creation of a special train dubbed Hyperloop, which would consume just half and hour to carry passengers from Los Angeles to San Francisco and vice versa.
But, a number of people and experts have started raising questions on the feasibility of such a futuristic transportation project.
As per Musk's plans, the transportation system would be a tube-like passage through with capsule-like wagons filled with passengers will travel at a speed of 760 miles per hour. The idea sounds great but many experts argue that passengers would not be able to handle the inertia created by such a high speed.
Many others are questioning the Musk's claim that how such a system could be safer as well as cheaper that the California High Speed Rail project, as claimed by Musk.
The Hyperlook project has even become a subject of ridicule at popular video-sharing site YouTube.
Taiwan-based animator Next Media Animator has posted a video titled "Elon Musk's Hyperloop: Hyper cool or over-hyped?" The video mocks at the idea and presents some exaggerations.
Mocking at Musk's idea, a YouTube user commented, "This is so old and useless. Time travel would be much better."
Elon Musk is well-known for founding SpaceX and co-founding PayPal and Tesla Motors.
