Congratulations to HyperLynx, a team of eight undergraduate mechanical engineering students! This past weekend, HyperLynx participated in SpaceX’s Hyperloop Pod Competition Design Weekend, and they are one of 22 teams (from 115) whose design prototype was selected to be tested at Elon Musk’s Hyperloop track this summer in California.
“Team Hyperlynx is one of only two teams advanced in the “wheeled vehicle” category of the competition,” says Jack Nelson, Hyperlynx team member. “We will be going head to head against “Gatorloop” from the University of Florida as our ONLY competitor in this category. The award for winning will be cash prizes and what SpaceX has referred to as ‘The coolest trophy ever’ (seriously).”
This is an awesome accomplishment, and we can’t wait to see their work in action this summer.
