Hyperloop test track likely bound for Texas

Hyperloop test track likely bound for Texas


Tesla CEO and SpaceX CTO Elon Musk took to Twitter this afternoon to provide a bit more info on his Hyperloop project. According to the tweet, the 700 MPH transit system will get a test track where both companies and student teams can visit to test pod designs. What's more, he says the likely home will be Texas. Musk followed that up by saying that an annual student competition could be in the works, similar to the Formula SAE Series. Let's be honest: who wouldn't want to see some pod racing? If you'll recall, SpaceX announced in August that its new rocket facility would be built in Brownsville.

I want to see pod racing!

But why Texas? Is it less expensive to build things there?
