Why Hyperloop is not in the business of speed

Virgin Hyperloop envisions a future where floating pods packed with passengers and cargo will hurtle through vacuum tubes at 600 miles an hour (966 kph) or faster. This technology it hopes will transform transportation as we know it.

In this episode, Nandagopal Rajan talks to the company’s co-founder and Chief Technology Officer, Josh Giegel, and Tanay Manjrekar, its Power Electronics Specialist, who is also the first Indian to travel in a Hyperloop Pod. They discuss Hyperloop’s future, the challenges ahead for it, and what it is like travelling in it.
