Say hello to the future as the US-based Hyperloop Transportation Technology {HTT} has proposed to introduce hyperloop trains that’ll cover the distance between Mumbai and Pune within 25 unimaginable minutes, as reported by The Hindu.

It's The Future, Baby

A proposal by the Union Minister, Nitin Gadkari to change the face of how Indians travel is to be set in motion by introducing hyperloop in India between Mumbai and Pune. This will cut down the eight hours of travel time to mere 25 minutes {no, we do not kid}. ET reports, Bibop Gresta, the co-founder HTT says the proposal will take at least 38 months for it to get finalised and get the necessary approvals.

Hyperloop is a crazy spaceship-like tube that was popularised by Elon Musk, founder of SpaceX back in 2013. Hyperloop is expected to transport freight and passengers, and is known to run faster than an aircraft which explains its super quick magical run of covering 149 kms between Mumbai and Pune in 25 minutes.

So, We're Saying...

If everything goes well, including the land permits and the test runs, we may be able to see the light of this futuristic train by 2019-2020! Hey there Delhi, “what’s good?”.
