No more planes? Hyperloop test facility unveiled in Netherlands

A Hyperloop test facility has been unveiled in the Netherlands, bringing Elon Musk's vision of transporting pods of people through a tube at incredibly high speeds one step closer to fruition.

The test facility, a 30-meter-long (100ft), 3.2-meter-diameter (10.5ft) steel tube, is located at Delft Technical University.

"In this facility we will test all systems that don't require high speeds," said Tim Houter, CEO of Hardt Global Mobility, which is working on the project with construction company BAM, as quoted by Reuters.

There is a good Sci-Fi novel where people travel by stepping on different belts of ever-increasing speed.

I can't remember the book title. :angry:

 "The Roads Must Roll." by Heinlein. No

Searches are worthless sometimes too.

Hmmm... 
Stanislaw Lem's Let Us Save the Universe maybe?
