Elon Musk's vision for a Hyperloop future raced forward Sunday at the 2019 Hyperloop Pod Competition. A self-propelled pod set a new speed record on the track. So next up is a much-longer tunnel, with a curve.
Twenty-one teams from universities across the world competed. The winning team this year -- and last year -- comes from the Technical University of Munich. A tweet from the team on Monday noted that its pod "lost some parts on the way" on the way to its win.
Musk, whose company SpaceX sponsored on the Hyperloop competition, tweeted that next year's event will expand the tunnel from three-quarters of a mile to 6.2 miles (10 km). The tunnel will also include a curve.
He's been publicly pursuing the.
