Final assembly and finishing touches
Jan. 18, 2017
The Hyperloop UC team has become intimately familiar with the process for assembling their prototype pod. Here, they reassemble the guts of the thing for what they hope is the final time before competition weekend at SpaceX.
The pod had to be completely stripped down so the skin could be shipped off for painting. The last-minute custom paint job created a good deal of stress for team members who worked day and night to put the thing back together again. Team President Dhaval Shiyani, at right, admitted that he'd only slept a total of eight hours the previous three nights when this image was taken.
"I could lay down and sleep on this floor," he said.
