Illini Hyperloop preps for SpaceX competition
As one of only 30 groups traveling to California for the Space-X competition next week, the Illlini Hyperloop team has been putting in long hours in the lab preparing its pod.
MechSE associate professor Carlos Pantano and senior design advisor Blake Johnson serve as the team’s faculty advisors. Pantano has led the University of Illinois hyperloop effort since its start in 2015.
Undergraduate Rishab Pohane recently spoke with WCIA about the hyperloop project. The team was also featured by Chicago Inno this week.
