faster than the wind
Elon Musk, business executive,engineer, and investor, known in connection with Tesla Motors, Solar City, and SpaceX, came up with a new form of transportation that could replace trains, cars, and airplanes for commutes between cities less than 1000 miles apart. Called ‘Hyperloop’, it would reach speeds over 750 mph and would run on solar energy. A trip between Los Angeles and San Francisco would be about 35 minutes. What a concept! He released detailed plans to the public in 2013, to facilitate project design and development.
How would it work? Pressurized passenger capsules would be propelled on an air cushion in reduced-pressure tubes, driven by linear induction motors and air compressors.
My haiku was written in response to RonovanWrites Haiku Challenge #80. The prompt words were ‘style’ and ‘fresh’, and I used synonyms: ‘mode’ and ‘new’. For other takes on the prompts, please visit RonovanWrites at the link above.
