These trains run at incredible speeds.
Maglev trains are futuristic vehicles that use magnets to stay afloat, eliminating a bottleneck for impressive speed: friction. As such, Maglev trains can reach much higher peak speeds than even the fastest trains at the moment.
For example, Japanese archery trains have long had a reputation for high speeds. However, their variants of maglev are significantly faster. For example, the speed record of 275 mph (443 km / h) for train bullets 300X was completely destroyed by the maglev train L0 peak speed of the series of 375 mph (603 km / h).
Then there is the new Chinese prototype of a Muggle train under construction, which can reach a top speed of 385 mph (620 km / h). Are you impressed already?
Well, these trains can run even faster if we remove the resistance of the resistance or the wind. These special trains that can achieve this are called vactrains and they are located inside evacuated pipes or sealed tunnels from which almost all the air is sucked out.
The maximum speeds for these trains would be somewhere in the range of 2,500 miles per hour (4,000 km / h), about five times faster than the average cruising speed for a commercial aircraft.
But can vaccines become a reality? Is it safe for people to travel at such a high speed? What are Elon Musk and Richard Branson’s plans for vaccines? We answer all these and more questions in our video.
