"I have spoken to Greg Henk, an engineer who's part of Hyperloop TT tunneling group, and evacuated tube testing should be the next phase: By putting a capsule in an evacuated tube we can push the speed tests to 1000 km per hour. this will be the basis of our narrative and our publication for the European and North American market."
Theme: A capsule, with or without passengers, at 1000KMPH in an evacuated tube test is the next phase of Hyperloop testing - and the theme of the book and my speech."

Mr. Alan Simmons
Mr. Simmons have been offered a position at Gnomon for Teaching. He taught at the animation Academy for four years, from 16 year olds to 60+ year old professionals, basically on the subject of perspective drawing, environment/Background design for Animation and games.
Currently he is developing a Production Design "Look" for a feature film. Images from that are limited because of an NDA.
His IMDB site deals mostly with Animation Design.
And his personal website:
Mr. Simmons does design and development work for Animation, Games and Live Action "Film" (Film is now mostly digital images). He is adding "HYperloop on the Moon". He designed a moonbase and this shot has a refinery/ processing plant with the Hyperloop running beside it. The pumps and valves might not be necessary here since the Moon is mostly vacuum--(as far as we know). The bottom pic is a drone he designed for the Tesla Foundation.
Dr. Ken Lui, Ph.D.
Ken is a Consultant, and also the Events/Program Chair, LA of the AIAA Los Angeles-Las Vegas Section. He obtained his Ph.D. soon after September 11, from Carnegie Mellon University, where one of the airplanes crashed 1 hour driving distance away from Pittsburgh, PA.
Ken has been involved in testing & implementing locally the AIAA Engage and the Discussion Board, initially for the Events/Program purposes, but later extended to other usages as it has been helpful. Both the AIAA HQ and Ken realized people have not been familiar with this great tool that every AIAA member has access to it easily, and have been trying find ways to help more people using it.
