What is Hyperloop?
Hyperloop is a technology that was first proposed by entrepreneur Elon Musk in August of 2013. The proposition outlines specifications for a transport framework that utilizes vacuum tunneling to enable mass transport at speeds in excess of 760 miles per hour. This will enable trips such as LA to San Francisco in under half an hour.
Transport by Vacuum
Reduces the air resistance, enabling rapid acceleration
The original Hyperloop proposal calls for speeds of up to 700 mph
This technology will massively reduce American carbon footprint
About Our Team
Hyperloop at Virginia Tech has a track record that speaks for itself. Our team of phenomenal engineers has had the privilege of being a part of the SpaceX Hyperloop competition since the very beginning. We have been invited to all four of the past competitions and we have made a name for ourselves. In the first and second competitions, we placed fourth and seventh respectively. We recruit the best and brightest minds that Virginia Tech has to offer boasting over a hundred members who actively commit to making our dream come true.
