Munich Team wins the Hyperloop Pod Competition

TNG was the first sponsor of the TU Munich's Hyperloop team. The first ideas for participation in the competition run by SpaceX and Elon Musk go back to autumn 2015. The efforts of the student team, involving up to 30 students, were rewarded with victory in the competition and the prizes for "fastest pod" and "best performance in flight". Neither the strong competition from Delft and MIT nor the heavy rain and customs' confiscation of the batteries could prevent the win. We congratulate the team and look forward to the talk at the next Big Techday!
