    Hyperloop or Hyperflop

    Hyperloop technology is pretty simple.

    Using pressure differential to suck a train through a tube has been discussed since the 1700's

    Elon Musk's Hyperloop puts the Compressor at the front of the train sucking air in and then squirting air out the back.


    Will it ever become a viable high speed mass transit system?

    If he can land his Falcon 9 first stage on a tiny floating barge in the ocean after it has pushed a payload into a parking orbit then anything is possible.
