    It might not seem like much on the surface, but Hyperloop is hailing its 70 mph, 315-foot test run as a “Kitty Hawk moment.”

    Shortly after midnight May 12, Hyperloop guided a wheel-mounted sled 315 feet through a vacuum tube, reaching “nearly 2Gs of acceleration” and a top speed of 70 mph as it traveled down a guideway for 5.3 seconds, the company said. The sled accelerated for about 100 feet — the length of the motor — and lifted to a glide, according to the company.
