    Actually - no. How could you think it? Nevertheless his article is clear prior art for the idea.

    Point of order; Musk's idea was explicitly not maglev. It was a hovercraft in a mostly evacuated tube.

    That was my point of order. Musk's idea of what Hyperloop would be, is not what Hyperloop is now. So he got his name plastered over a different concept from the one he came up with.

    I don't think a flame thrower would work in a vacuum unless it had an oxidiser as well.

    Almost as fast as a train. This is crazy.

    290 mph is 466 km/h and is faster than any current train

    Operating trains. Maglev trains in testing have posted 375mph and the wheeled TGV on a section of track posted 357.2mph.

    Wasn't hyperloop meant to be, like 760mph? Is it just a fast train in a tube/tunnel now?

    It's accelerating.

    Right. Presumably soon they will encounter the problems fast trains already face.
