Mr. Aditya Ranade, Hyperloop
Mr. Aditya Ranade, on behalf of Virgin Hyperloop One, visited campus on the 26th of August 2019, to present to the batch of 19-22 the idea of the Hyperloop that would connect Pune and Mumbai. Hyperloop is the radical new transportation technology proposed by Elon Musk in 2012. It uses reduced-pressure tubes to allow pressurized capsules to travel at speeds of up to 1,200 kilometers per hour. There are currently a number of companies and organizations working to commercialize the technology. Virgin Hyperloop One is one of the most advanced projects on transportation currently. The students were treated to a presentation focussing on this idea, and were also invited to apply for an internship with the said company.
