Short Description of the idea (max 50 words)

Build hyperloop in Europe, in the route of Thessaloniki to Vienna.

Full Description of the idea

The Hyperloop is a conceptual high-speed transportation system incorporating reduced-pressure tubes in which pressurized capsules ride on an air cushion driven by linear induction motors and air compressors. The outline of the original Hyperloop concept was made public by the release of a preliminary design document in August 2013, which included a notional route running from the Los Angeles region to the San Francisco Bay Area. Preliminary analysis indicated that such a route might obtain an expected journey time of 35 minutes, meaning that passengers would traverse the 560 km route at an average speed of around 970 km/h, with a top speed of 1,200 km/h. Preliminary cost estimates for the LA–SF notional route were included in the white paper—US$6 billion for a passenger-only version, and US$7.5 billion for a somewhat larger-diameter version transporting passengers and vehicles —although transportation analysts doubted that the system could be constructed on that budget. Hyperloop technology is open sourced.
