You have to see this! Train goes speed of sound

You have to see this! Train goes speed of sound

If you thought the rocket-powered magnetically-levitated sled from Holloman Air Force Base last month went freaky fast at 633 mph, you're not going to believe how fast this new train can go. Imagine the ability to commute to work at the speed of sound. Wow.

Hyperloop Technologies has been teasing fans on Twitter with plans of "huge" announcements from Las Vegas this week, though there is no certainty as to what those announcements are.

In December, the company announced that it was building the first test track at the Apex Industrial Park in North Las Vegas, which measures just over a half mile and is used to send linear motors down the line at 330 mph. Talk about speedy. But guess what? It gets faster.
