AZLoop is gunning to win this year’s Hyperloop Pod Competition , hosted by SpaceX, on Sunday, July 22.

The team is made up of graduate and undergraduate students from a variety of fields and representing Embry-Riddle and ASU. AZLoop is one of just 18 teams competing from universities around the world, including teams from Switzerland, Ireland and Spain.

Hyperloop is an idea for mass public transit that was widely publicized after SpaceX Founder and CEO Elon Musk advocated in 2013 for Hyperloop Alpha , a system connecting Los Angeles and San Francisco.

The word ‘hyperloop’ does not refer to any individual company, but rather a class of transportation systems characterized by a vacuum-pressurized tube through which a high-speed rail passes at hundreds of miles per hour. The gist of the idea is to move many people from one place to another over vast distances in relatively little time.

The idea is not without its critics , as the often controversial Musk has been accused of making the idea sound easier to execute than it really is.

Until recently, there have been no true hyperloop systems under construction. However, Virgin Hyperloop One , a California-based company, just received the contract for a project in China. Musk is also planning for The Boring Company, his most recently founded business, to dig a hyperloop tunnel between Washington, D.C. and New York City.

Just received verbal govt approval for The Boring Company to build an underground NY-Phil-Balt-DC Hyperloop. NY-DC in 29 mins.

As part of Musk’s desire to spark interest and ingenuity in the growing field of hyperloop systems design, SpaceX began hosting a series of hyperloop pod design competitions last year. Sunday’s event is the last stage in this year’s competition.

Not every team will have the opportunity to test its pod on Sunday. Due to time constraints and logistical considerations, only three teams will actually be able to demonstrate their pods’ performance.

AZLoop is currently at the SpaceX headquarters in Hawthorne, California, working around-the-clock to ensure it will be one of those three teams. Winning a spot in Sunday’s competition will allow the public to see the result of thousands of hours of labor by the team’s 83 members.

“So far, we feel pretty good about it,” Team Spokesperson Elvis Leon said. “There are a few teams that are ahead of us, but they’ve also been running into issues.”

Leon said many individual team members sleep only three hours per day and work from the time they wake up until the time they go to bed. They create shifts to determine who will do each task necessary to prepare for Sunday’s competition.

The Republic of Macedonia ’s president rejected an agreement with Greece on the nation’s new name in what could prove to be a temporary hurdle in the ex-Yugoslav nation’s NATO and Pictures Fast Delivery Sale Online Savoy Buttondown Dress Maeve Discount Wholesale Price Wholesale Price Sale Online 9ZMn6y
accession plans. The EU said membership talks may start next year.

The veto by opposition-backed President Gjorge Ivanov, who said on Tuesday he wouldn’t sign the accord, may be overturned in parliament as early as next week. The legislature’s approval to call the country the Republic of North Macedonia is crucial for Prime Minister Zoran Zaev to proceed with a plan to hold a referendum this fall.

The agreement violates the constitution and “puts the Republic of Macedonia in subordination to and dependence on another state,” Ivanov said in an emailed statement.

Zaev needs wide public support to pass a constitutional amendment in exchange for Greece to stop blocking the country’s aspirations of joining the EU and the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. Greece believes the name ‘Macedonia’ is a Footlocker Finishline Online Finishline Online Joseph Woman Claire Leather Skirt Black Size 34 Joseph For Sale Online Store Free Shipping Pick A Best 5PbjhO
over its northern province with the same label. The premier expects to receive invitations to start entry talks with both within weeks.

“The president’s decision was anticipated, but it won’t affect the stages of the agreement’s approval, because the citizens will have the final decision,” government spokesman Mile Boshniakovski said by phone from Skopje. “The cabinet in Athens already sent letters to the EU and NATO to support us for this week’s EU meeting and the NATO summit on July 12.”

If the legal procedures are completed, the EU may start entry talks with the country, along with Albania, in June 2019, according to a statement following a meeting of European affairs ministers in Luxembourg on Tuesday.
