Superconductors are used for a variety of purposes. Essentially it is a magnet that is chilled to a very low temperature, where it then experiences superconductive properties, such as magnetic levitation.
We are interested in the application of this amazing technology towards magnetic levitation trains, rails and potentially tube systems that are hyper-fast, cost efficient and will make our world better by being the next technological evolutionary step in transportation of people and freight.
Based in New York, we will work tirelessly to ensure a magnetic levitation intra and inter-state rail system that will allow commutes at 400 + MPH. This will allow for the radius of cities to expand, and will allow easier commutes between distant cities.
Imagine living in New York and working in DC, or Chicago, or one day, LA, if the technology gets fast enough.
The hyperloop, Elon Musk has boasted, could whisk you from New York to Washington in 29 minutes. Other maglev boosters sell similar dreams: San Francisco to Los Angeles in under 30. Dallas to Houston, Portland to Seattle, Orlando to Miami in the same. The half-hour trip is something of a mystical notion in transportation. These visions of the future sound seductive in part because half an hour is, in fact, roughly how long many of us spend getting to work. The typical American commutes 26.4 minutes, one way, according to the American Community Survey. Even in metro New York, with nearly the longest commutes in the country, that average is 36 minutes. Of course plenty of workers trek less or much more, but average American commute times have budged only modestly over the last 35 years, since the census began asking about them. International studies have shown similar half-hour patterns. History even hints that the Romans traveled about the same, when most people went everywhere on foot. . .
