Kyiv to Odesa in 30 minutes

Kyiv to Odesa in 30 minutes. That is the dream of advocates of Hyperloop, a pod racing through a vacuum tube at speeds up to 1,000 km an hour. On Thursday, Infrastructure Minister Volodymyr Omelyan signed a memorandum with Dirk Ahlborn, the German-American who is CEO of Hyperloop Transportation Technologies based in Culver City, Los Angeles. Omelyan wants to work with Hyperloop to start building next year a 1 km test pipe in Dnipro. In rural stretches of the 450 km between Kyiv and Odesa, a vacuum tube could be built above ground at the cost of $10 million a kilometer.
