Crating and shipping the Hyperloop UC prototype
Jan. 19, 2017
Members of the Hyperloop UC team carefully crated their 15.5-foot prototype and escorted it from the high bay of UC's Rhodes Hall, down MainStreet to the dock near the Engineering Research Center, where it was loaded into the back of a truck.
Team organizers estimate it will take three days to transport by truck from Cincinnati to Hawthorne, California, a 2,215-mile journey. The first wave of 15 UC students are flying into Los Angeles International Airport on Saturday, Jan. 21. The second wave of 15 students will join them on Thursday, Jan. 25.
The pod's trip to SpaceX is the second such journey, as it made a similar trip for preliminary testing in November.
