Elon Musk said that he plans to change the conditions of the student contest Hyperloop, which is being held with the participation of SpaceX for several years in a row. Starting next year, competitions will take place in a curved tunnel more than 6 miles long. Recall that earlier a straight ¾ mile-long tunnel was used in this contest.
During the briefing, Davis and Musk discussed the expansion of the tunnel on the stage, but it seems like they are planning minor updates for next year.
“I don’t think we’ll have a long enough, straight enough underground tunnel a year from now but I think three years from now we definitely will,” Musk said during a Q&A at the competition.
So, most likely there will still be changes in this competition next year, but apparently not radical.
