Intriguing look at the Hyperloop
A breakdown of one person’s thoughts on the design and construction of Elon Musk’s Hyperloop invention, hypothetically costing 1/10th the cost of high-speed rail construction.
Travel inside the Hyperloop (a tube, where your “car” is pushed via airflow like old-time mail up skyscrapers) would be relatively fast, at, oh, about 600mph, but would it be safe? Easy to build? Tinkerer John Gardi took a stab at one possible design of the Hyperloop. If this is anywhere near what could be accomplished, why would we not want to build this and decrease travel time while increasing productivity? Do you think it’s worth the investment?
VedPhoto – Science and Photography
VedPhoto is a company started by Ved Chirayath, a NASA Scientist and Vogue Photographer. His aim is to mix photography and scientific discovery to encourage kids to become more involved in science and exploration. Each photo comes with a story, a history, if you will, that makes the pictures worth more than just a thousand words. He offers amazing internships that allow students to help with the research and field study of such projects as the HiMARC satellite-based telescope, which brings us high resolution images of both earth and space.
Kudos to Ved for encouraging exploration and curiosity.
