Hyperloop is expected to grow in the global market at rate of 35% between 2020 to 2027. Why hyperloop technology looks promising compared to other modern transportation methods is due to its decreased journey time and transportation expense limited deluxe and merest infrastructural sustenance, endurance to earthquakes and different physical catastrophes and more inadequate ground space needed

Moreover, climate change has been a key player in finding low-carbon alternatives to conventional rail and air travel. Hyperloop operates in a vacuum system that reduces aerodynamic drag, enabling higher speeds and greater energy efficiency.

What is Hyperloop?

Hyperloop was first Conceptualized in 2012 by Elon Musk, thetech entrepreneur. It is a proposed high-speed transportation system in which specialized pods are accelerated through a low-pressure tube to achieve speeds near the speed of sound. Hyperloop is intended to provide a more cost-effective and faster mode of travel between cities separated by distances less than approximately nine hundred miles

The key challenge on building hyperloop is its infrastructure. Musk has estimated that implementing a full passenger-plus-cargo version of the Hyperloop would cost approximately $7.5 billion USD, although critics claim.

Musk has described Hyperloop operation as a cross between the Concorde supersonic jet, a railgun (which can accelerate projectiles to supersonic speeds rapidly using the principles of electrodynamics), and an air hockey table, which creates small bearings of air that act as a cushion for objects to move with little friction.

 

 

 

 

 

 

Physics of Hyperloop

“Hyperloop is all about removing the two things that slow down regular vehicles: friction and air resistance.”

Musk originally suggested doing this with air bearings, little jets of air on the bottom of the pod. Think of air hockey, he said, but where the air comes out of the puck instead of the table. Today, most hyperloop engineers have decided instead to rely on passive magnetic levitation. Where standard maglev systems are power hungry and expensive, this system uses an array of permanent magnets on the vehicle. When those magnets move over conductive arrays in the track, they create a magnetic field that pushes the pod up, no current required. A complementary magnet system (think of two magnets pushing off one another) would give the pods a push every few miles or so—the near total lack of friction and air resistance means you don’t need a constant propulsion system.

As for air resistance, that’s where the tube comes in. (Yes, tubes also just feel like the future, but that’s not the point.) The tubes enclose the space through which the pods move, so you can use vacuums to hoover out nearly all the air—leaving so little that the physics are like being at an altitude of 200,000 feet. And so, like a cruising airplane, a hyperloop needs only a little bit of energy to maintain the pods’ speed, because there’s less stuff to push through. More speed with less power gets you to where you’re going faster, greener, and—depending on energy costs—maybe cheaper too.

Success towards Hyperloop

Soon after Musk’s paper hit the internet, a handful of companies sprung up, bringing together engineers and VC money to solve the problems for real. From the beginning, LA-based Virgin Hyperloop One funded by Richard Branson has appeared to be the most serious contender, with serious VC backing, hundreds of employees, a full bank account, and a test track in the Nevada desert where, in December 2018, it sent a pod racing to 240 mph.

Hyperloop Transportation Technologies is also another contender where many of the engineers works in other biggies such as Boeing, NASA and SpaceX spend their free time working together to solve the engineering problems standing between humanity and hyperloop. They have plans expand outside the US such a Central Europe, South Korea, and India.

And there, Elon Musk the main game changer has got back on track as he confirmed he wants to build a hyperloop of his own. His plans are particularly vague, but he thinks the tubular system would go great with the tunnels he wants to create using another new venture, the Boring Company.

The Future

For Hyperloop to really work, it must offer the kind of service, pricing, and safety record that will draw paying passengers away from current modes of transportation, including airlines, trainsand thepersonal car.Those systems may not be perfect, but they have established user bases, are more or less profitable, and are safe enough to keep people riding and regulators happy.

They could connect an airport to a city center or public transit hub, or send cargo from a port to an inland distribution center, so trucks don’t have to crowd into already congested areas. Tackling a real long-distance, city-to-city route will make things much harder.

Why Hyperloop will be a success

Conventional means of transportation (road, water, air, and rail) tend to be some mix of expensive, slow, and environmentally harmful. Road travel is particularly problematic, given carbon emissions and the fluctuating price of oil. As the environmental dangers of energy consumption continue to worsen, mass transit will be crucial in the years to come. Given these issues, the Hyperloop aims to make a cost-effective, high speed transportation system for use at moderate distances.

Does school prepare children to the real world? NO.

‘Study hard and get good grades and find a job with better perks’ is the advice given by most of the parents.  Children invest most of their time at school and study subjects that they never use in real life. Parents advice their children if they get good grades at school they get into better college for higher education and then graduate to move into a good job. And if you have a good job then you are in the right path to be rich.

The world around has changed, but the advice isn’t. Getting a good education and making good grades no longer ensures success, and nobody seems to have noticed. At school, financial education has not been a key curriculum to be taught at school and without financial literacy and the knowledge of how money works; they are not prepared to face the world in which spending emphasized over savings.

When Sharon L. Letcher questioned Robert Kiyosaki (author of more than 26 books, including the international self-published personal finance Rich Dad Poor Dad series of books) about Rat Race, he defined;

“If you look at the life of the average-educated, hard-working person, there is a similar path. The child is born and goes to school. The proud parents are excited because the child excels, gets fair to good grades, and is accepted into a college. The child graduates, maybe goes on to graduate school and then does exactly as programmed: looks for a safe, secure job or career. The child finds that job, maybe as a doctor or a lawyer, or joins the Army or works for the government. Generally, the child begins to make money, credit cards start to arrive in mass, and then shopping begins, if it already hasn’t.”

“Having money to burn, the child goes to places where other young people just like them hang out, and they meet people, they date, and sometimes they get married. Life is wonderful now, because today, both men and women work. Two incomes are bliss. They feel successful, their future is bright, and they decide to buy a house, a car, a television, take vacations and have children. The happy bundle arrives.  The demand for cash is enormous. The happy couple decides that their careers are vitally important and begin to work harder, seeking promotions and raises. The raises come, and so do another child and the need for a bigger house. They work harder; become better employees, even more dedicated. They go back to school to get more specialized skills so they can earn more money. Maybe they take a second job. Their incomes go up, but so does the tax bracket they’re in and the real estate taxes on their new large home, and their Social Security taxes, and all the other taxes. They get their large paycheck and wonder where all the money went. They buy some mutual funds and buy groceries with their credit card. The children reach 5 or 6 years of age, and the need to save for college increases as well as the need to save for their retirement.”

“That happy couple, born 35 years ago, is now trapped in the Rat Race for the rest of their working days.  They work for the owners of their company, for the government paying taxes, and for the bank paying off a mortgage and credit cards.”

“Then, they advise their own children to `study hard, get good grades, and find a safe job or career.’  They learn nothing about money, except from those who profit from their naïveté, and work hard all their lives. The process repeats into another hard-working generation. “

This is the `Rat Race’.

The only way to get out of the Rat Race is to prove tour proficiency at both Accounting and Investing.

Below is a simple example by Robert Kiyosaki which will make you think;

What happens when a corporation announces a downsizing?

People get laid off and unemployment goes up. Yes, but what happens to the company, in particular a public company on the stock exchange?

The price of the stock usually goes up when the downsizing is announced and the market likes it when a company reduces its labor costs, either through automation or just consolidating the labor force in general. And when stock prices go up shareholders, get richer. Employees lose; owners and investors win.

The Fortune 100 is the top 100 companies in the United States and it is the part of Fortune500 companies. Thus, this is the list of 500 largest United States public and privately held companies published by Fortune magazine. The ranking calculating based on total revenues for the company’s corresponding fiscal year. Further, fortune magazine prepare the list by ranking public and private companies that report annual revenue figures to a government agency. Fortune stared to listing the companies since 1955. However, fortune 500 changed in 1994 to include the companies from various sectors.

Since Fortune listed 500 top companies in 1995, General Motors was in the leading position for more than 3o years. General Motors had revenues of $9.82 billion to top list. The following companies were the top position in early.

Top 10 companies from 1995 Fortune 500 List

  1. General Motors $9.82billion
  2. Exxon (now part of Exxon Mobil) at $5.66 billion
  3. S. Steel at $3.25 billion
  4. General Electric at $2.96 billion
  5. Esmark at $2.5 billion
  6. Chrysler at $2.07 billion
  7. Armour at $2.06 billion
  8. Gulf Oil at $1.71 billion
  9. Socony (Standard Oil Company of New York, which became Mobil, and is now part of Exxon Mobil) at $1.70 billion
  10. DuPont at $1.69 billion

At very first early fortune 100 companies included only from specific sectors such as manufacturing, mining and energy sectors. These lead to left many top earning companies from the list. However Fortune published top 50 companies’ individual sector lists from banks, utilities, insurance, retailers and transportation.

Fortune included the services companies in 1994; it led to many new companies to join to fortune list. This change added many new companies to the fortune 100list and also dramatically increased the amount of annual revenue required to make the prestigious list. If any company want to join in the list in 1994 it should generate $10.9billion revenue. In 1994 it was 5.3billion revenue. Here are the top fortune 100 companies in 2019 list.
