Hyperloop capsule sizes[edit]

Hi! thank you for your File:Hyperloop capsule.svg. I think, that you pictured the capsule as too high. Hyperloop.pdf says that capsule has ~36% of cross-section of tube, tube diameter is 2.2 meters and (passenger) capsule height is 1.1 meters. Can you correct image? `A5b (talk) 21:12, 15 August 2013 (UTC)

Well - it's pretty much all out of scale and out of proportion, really. - Seen those skids? They are projected to reach out rather sidewards than downwards and yet there is schematics in their own documentation depicting them as underneath the capsule. The capsule sitting on the lowest point of the tube also doesn't make sense... But depicting at least some of the headroom above the capsule is a good idea, I think, because it could get clearer how the airflow is meant to be.-- 21:44, 15 August 2013 (UTC)
Great! I also want note that 1.1 meter of height is very low, and the seat may be taller too. Personally, I used tape measure fixed at 1.1 meters to imagine how should Musk pack passengers. And 1.1 is outer size, not the inner. This size is close to height of formula 1 cars (0.95 m). `A5b (talk) 23:12, 16 August 2013 (UTC)
