A Chinese research facility developing an ultra-fast hyperloop train has completed its first test runs using a full-sized passenger capsule, according to media reports.

China Space News reported on Wednesday that three test runs were completed at a superconducting maglev (magnetic levitation) test line in Datong, Shanxi province. The project aims to eventually carry passengers and cargo at a speed of 1,000km/h or faster in a near-vacuum tube and, if successful, would be the world’s fastest ground-based transport technology.

SpaceX founder Elon Musk first proposed the idea of a “hyperloop” tube train in 2012 to push land-based transport to extreme speeds.
