Abu Dhabi to Dubai in less than 15 minutes a pipe dream?

Abu Dhabi to Dubai in less than 15 minutes

Now it is possible to travel between Abu Dhabi to Dubai in less than 15 minutes. That’s the claim of Peter Diamandis, who has earmarked the UAE as a potential destination for the first fully operational ‘hyperloop’ passenger transport system.

With potential speeds of 1200kph, and the backing of SpaceX CEO Elon Musk, one of the world’s pre-eminant engineering brains, this no pipe dream.

It is expected to begin track testing in 2016. “Full scale and speed testing will be done next year at 3-4 kilometre area at a number of locations, he explained. “If UAE want, it could be operational before 2020,” Diamandis, founder of the nonprofit X Prize Foundation, explained his concept.

The Hyperloop has been vaguely described by Musk as a “cross between a Concorde, a rail gun, and an air hockey table.” A better description might be an elevated tube system with a magnetic levitation system similar to high-speed bullet trains. The kicker would be the enclosed tube, which would provide a nearly friction-less surface for individual capsules to travel in.

Musk, the man behind both Tesla Motors and SpaceX, has spoken about a high-speed transportation system known as the Hyperloop, a tube transport system that would allow passengers to travel at high speeds.


Elon Musk’s tubular Hyperloop transportation system is more than just a pipe dream.
