    A group of Arizona college students are competing against teams from around the world in hopes of impressing Elon Musk.

    The tech guru's company, SpaceX, is hosting its third-annual Hyperloop Pod Competition July 22. SpaceX hopes to use the high-speed transportation system to transport people between cities at a fast rate.

    Three years ago, 13 students formed AZ Loop. Now the team has more than 60 members from Arizona State University and Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University.

    The team created a self-propelled, model-size pod that is about 10 feet long and travels on a track. It has navigation, propulsion, braking and stability mechanisms.
