Video Staying in the loop

December 6, 2016

What’s the future of high-speed transportation? A team of UW–Madison students thinks it’s on the right track. Actually, more of a tube. Badgerloop, which is competing in Elon Musk’s SpaceX Hyperloop design competition, is a 200-mph pod that levitates its passenger through an above-ground vacuum tube. The prototype is being built right here on campus. And then, it’s on to California, where the team will race the pod on a test track in January.
