December 18, 2018 -- A 3km test tunnel for Elon Musk’s Hyperloop, an electric travel system running under a Los Angeles freeway, is set to open to the public.

The route, beginning on the site of Musk’s SpaceX company in Hawthorne, Los Angeles and running for three kilometres under West 120th Street, will carry test vehicles at speeds of up to 250km/h.

To celebrate the completion of the Hyperloop test track, a night of festivities is planned for December 18, followed the next day by free rides for the public.

Musk’s Boring Company is also working on another Hyperloop trial in LA, linking to Dodger Stadium, as well as further proposals for Washington D.C. and Chicago.


NEW GRAPHIC NEWS - a new website for a new era.

28 years ago — April 2, 1991 — the original Graphic News launched using a precursor to today’s websites that used email technology. These enabled infographics to be delivered electronically around the world over telephone lines. What was possible was very limited - It took 10 minutes for a 100K file to download.

Since then delivery speeds and website technology have moved on. The new website will offer the best online experience possible now, adding many new features (and offering new opportunities for the future), but still enabling existing users to select and download infographics and enjoy the distinct brand of visual journalism that is Graphic News.


Over the coming weeks I will give further information. Please contact me if you have any questions. Fiona Roberts, froberts @ graphicnews.com
