China Built A Prototype For A Train Capable Of Reaching 1,800 MPH


Currently, the fastest commercially operated maglev reaches just 431 km/h and even the world record is just 581 km/hr.

According to project lead Dr. Deng Zigang, this huge increase in speed is achieved through the lack of air resistance in the near-vacuum tunnel.

"If the running speed exceeds 400 kilometers (250 miles) per hour, more than 83 percent of traction energy will wastefully dissipate in air resistance," he says. Additionally, overcoming that air resistance is loud, making it uncomfortable for passengers.
