Public railways have been with us since 1825 and mass-produced motor cars since 1909. Is it time for a new transport revolution? On Wednesday 4th September PubSci welcomes architect and urban designer Simon Kaufman, to talk about the groundbreaking Hyperloop UK transport project.
Hyperloop is a futuristic, green transportation system, championed by Space-X founder Elon Musk, that moves people and freight through frictionless tubes at airliner speeds on demand. In 2016 a UK consortium bid to host the world’s first Hyperloop route, supported by Friends of the Earth and the Department for Transport amongst others. Simon, who led the interdisciplinary engineering team for the Hyperloop UK proposal, will present the case for a Hyperloop network in Britain and discuss the challenges and opportunities of pioneering such a cutting edge transport technology here.
