The first test of the Hyperloop was done in the Nevada desert, and Missouri is one of 35 finalists for the new high-tech transportation system called a Hyperloop.
Back in April, News 4 first told you about the possibility of Missouri landing a Hyperloop transit system that would transport passengers from St. Louis to Kansas City in 23 minutes.
The company, "Hyperloop-One," said the test consisted of the first full-scale Hyperloop in the world.
Hyperloops use magnetic rails and a train that runs inside a tube with little or no air.
In theory, it allows travel faster than the speed of sound.
"We did it, we've been working so hard," said co-founder Shervin Pishevar. "Hyperloop is real."
"It will be the safest, cleanest, fastest form of transportation in the world," he continued.
Hyperloop-One's goal is to have three systems in service by 2021.
