UA Hyperloop team with adviser Cho Lik Chan in front of their poster in TexasThe UA Hyperloop team, which includes chemical engineering junior Corey Colbert, wants to make the dream of a superfast pneumatic tube train into reality.

This semester, they traveled to College Station, Texas, to compete in the SpaceX Hyperloop Pod Competition Design Weekend. They joined more than 100 other university groups in envisioning the people-moving pods for the tube system.

The team is now working on a test track and model system here in Tucson, thanks to funding from the UA Engineering Student Council.
