Scrapbook of Science

Science fiction is fun but science fact is where it begins. I'm going to add here some scientific inventions, theories and predictions. These are things that I wanted to understand so I've trawled the internet for easy explanations - my personal idiots guide.

This is the Virgin Hyperloop One. Here is the informative video from their website:

 It describes this incredible new mode of transport that uses a linear electric motor to propel a pod over 600mph through a near vacuum.

The concept was first created by Elon Musk but Virgin have taken the technology further. This invention would be perfect on other planets. The moon would benefit from a link around its equator and between the poles, connecting mining operations.
