Spoiler:
In early 1970s in Russia there were tests of trains that had jet plane engines.

Its maximum speed was around 249 km/h (around 155 mph). And it had engines from Yak-40 passenger jet plane.

The flash of light you saw in the sky was not a UFO. Swamp gas from a weather balloon was trapped in a thermal pocket and reflected the light from Venus.

Richard Branson, founder of Virgin, has invested an undisclosed amount of Virgin's funds in Hyperloop One. It must be a pretty big investment as Branson now has a seat on the board of the Hyperloop company and it's been rebranded as Virgin Hyperloop One.

More evidence that being a billionaire isn't always evidence of smarts. The hyperloop is a pipe dream, not a serious business proposition.
