Norway thinking about overseas Hyperloop to Denmark
The Norwegian Green Party took a liking to the idea of transporting people and goods in capsules in a near-vacuum, in a system known as a Hyperloop. The Party believes this option is safe, cheap and energy-efficient, Sputnik News report.
It also stunned its voters with the mind-blowing idea of building a Hyperloop between Norway's capital Oslo and Copenhagen, Denmark, thus bridging the two capital cities.

Basically, all you need is to pump air out of the tunnel to achieve a near-vacuum and get the capsule moving. ■
