HyperXite is competing in the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition. The goal is to accelerate the development of a rapid, renewable, and economical transportation system. The system will transport people and cargo between major cities in California, through a tube that is held at a very low pressure at Mach 0.99. Our task is to design and build a 1:2 scale model pod which will traverse a mile-long tube in Hawthorn, California in June 2016. The pod will be judged on safety, reliability, performance, flight, and construction quality.
