July Update on the Colorado Hyperloop & Hyperloop One Global Challenge

  • Happy 140th Birthday Colorado!

    The Centennial State first joined the union on Aug. 1, 1876 thanks to Proclamation 230, which was signed by President Ulysses S. Grant. The state is named for the Colorado River, which got its name for the ruddy silt Spanish travelers saw in the water.

    Colorado became a territory on Feb. 28. 1861, and has been inhabited by Native Americans for 13,000 years.

    The U.S. Census Bureau estimates 5,456,574 people lived in Colorado as of July 1, 2015 – an 8.5 percent increase since the 2010 census.

    At 104,094 square miles, Colorado is the eighth largest state in terms of land – but ranks 22nd in terms of population.  Via 9News.com
