Yun-Hang Cho, SELA Cohort 2014
The day began nice and early with a train to London. There were reports of train delays due to flooding that morning however my hopes remained high. By the time the train had past Leicester, I was sure I was going to arrive on time. That all changed with about 5 minutes before arriving at London. The train conductor announced a 15 minute delay going into St Pancras. How typical. It was ironic that today I would be representing SELA to get some opinions from politicians on the Hyperloop concept: a transportation system delivering travellers from point A to B via a high speed pod inside an airless vacuum within a tunnel stretching across the countryside. This new concept from the US would seem quite apt for a country who invented railways.
