The first public test of the Hyperloop system goes off without a hitch on May 12, 2016 in the Nevada desert. The seconds-long, outdoor demonstration featured a sled of metal gliding across a 1,000 meter track. The sled accelerated at 2.5G and reached a top speed of 116mph in two seconds before disappearing into a cloud against the desert landscape. But engineers still have a long way to go before building the full-scale system envisioned by Elon Musk, that will eventually run at 700mph.
