The project Hyperloop was invented by the founder of Tesla Motors and SpaceX Elon Musk. Highway is a closed tube in which a train can move at a speed of from 480 to 1220 km/h due to the absence of rails friction and air resistance. In may last year, held its first successful test in the United States.
Russian President Vladimir Putin in June 2016, has said he will support the project in case of its implementation in the country. Thus a press-the Secretary of the President Dmitry Peskov explained that financial support is unlikely to expect because this is an investment project.
