Travelling at the speed of sound for commuting will soon be possible, thanks to Elon Musk’s Hyperloop, a groundbreaking rapid transportation system that aims to drastically cut down on-ground travel time. The idea is to build tube tracks connecting numerous cities, and make specialised pods that will travel at supersonic speeds, at nearly 340m/s. Now, reports suggest that Hyperloop Transportation Technologies Chairman, Bibop Gresta has submitted a proposal to Union Transport Minister, Nitin Gadkari to set up a Hyperloop link between Mumbai and Pune.
