AZLoop is a team of students from universities throughout Arizona competing in SpaceX's Hyperloop competition.  The Hyperloop is a mass-transit concept that will allow people and cargo to travel from Los Angeles to San Fransisco or Phoenix to Los Angeles in thirty minutes safely and at low cost.  I was a member of the Propulsion team.

This is almost the entire team of AZLoop comprised of students from Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University, Thunderbird School of International Management, Northern Arizona University, and Arizona State University.

This is the propulsion team I'm a member of.  Pictured (from the top left going to the right and down) Jessica Maschino, Leann Scott, Madison Grayson, Surya Sarvajith, Cody Dodd, Athena Roberts.  Not pictured are Isaiah Wall, Maciek Czyz.
The is the final design of the propulsion system on its test stand.  In the foreground is the nozzle, on/off valves, and manifold.  To the rear, behind the aluminum plate, are the emergency pressure relief valves and pressure and temperature sensors.
