Spanish company reinvents hyperloop travel

This startup is the latest to join the race to create the world’s fastest rail system, promising travel at speeds of 650 miles per hour by 2023. Zeleros isn’t the first company to design a hyperloop. There are at least five others developing the tech and two initiatives from national governments.

That’s what sets it apart. A Zeleros tunnel won’t be as close to an airless vacuum as its rivals plan to be. Its pods would operate in a tunnel with similar amounts of air to those already tested on a commercial scale for flights. But making the super-speed railroads of the future is an expensive business and the less than $200,000 of funding Zeleros has received falls a little short of the backing multi-billionaire Richard Branson is putting behind ‘Hyperloop One,’ for example.
