SN 6 | EP 6 | Rise of the Hyperloop

For centuries, our railroads have pushed engineering to its limits. Trains can now travel further and climb higher than ever before. But for train engineers, it's the need for speed that has inspired the greatest innovations of all. From the technology that allows trains to navigate the winding mountains of Spain at high speeds, to the machines that allow engineers to lay tracks in record-breaking times, to the super-fast new form of transport for the future, Hyperloop One, this episode investigates the incredible engineering breakthroughs that allow trains to go faster than ever thought possible.
