Virgin Hyperloop pulls up the biggest chair for Branson, bags $50m, new speed record


Re: So, when is he going to build Space Cannon One?

If you want to accelerate human bodies you can do a maximum acceleration of 3g. That results in a mere 300km long acceleration way. And build it so that the projectile won't get exploded when leave the acceleration way.


Could some explain to me why the costs of a normal subway line or a tunnel like Gotthard in Switzerland soars in the multi-billion-range and the Hyperloop not??? I don't see that kind of potential of saving money on building a vacuum tunnel, keeping it evacuated all the time and also implement some not yet defined security measures - I don't mean safety against weapons of harmful fluids like masses of water - I mean how can the capsule passengers savely exit after an accident inside this tunnel???

Amazon files patent for 'Death Star' flying warehouse


Patenting the idea of a warehouse floating above and making it work is something very different. There are many problems of such a warehouse like: how long should this warehouse fly around? How new goods will be delivered to this warehouse. Are there any commercial available mini-drones capable of flying up to 30.000 m (15.000 in both directions)? What kind of fuel these mini-drones whould use?

So it is very questionable if this idea could really be implemented in the next time.
