China has revealed a prototype for a new high-speed Maglev train that is capable of reaching speeds of 620 kph. The train runs on high-temperature superconducting power that makes it look as if the train is floating along the magnetized tracks.
China has revealed a prototype for a new high-speed Maglev train that is capable of reaching speeds of 620 kilometers (385 miles) per hour. The train runs on high-temperature superconducting (HTS) power that makes it look as if the train is floating along the magnetized tracks. \n
Professor He Chuan (vice president of Southwest Jiaotong University, which worked on the prototype) told reporters that the train could be"operational" within 3-10 years.He added:"Sichuan has rich rare earth resources, which is very beneficial to our construction of permanent magnet tracks, thus promoting the faster development of experiments."
One possible interior for the new Maglev train.Liu Kun/Xinhua/Sipa USAChina is home to the world's largest high-speed rail network, which stretches over 37,000 kilometers, and the fastest commercially operating train -- the Shanghai maglev.The country's first high-speed Maglev train, it began operating in 2003. Running at a top speed of 431 kph, the train links Shanghai Pudong Airport and Longyang Road in the eastern side of Shanghai.
China has been eager to make further infrastructure improvements ahead of the 2022 Winter Olympics, which will take place in Beijing.Related contentThis time last year, China unveiled a new 174-kilometer high-speed railway line connecting Beijing with 2022 Winter Olympics host city Zhangjiakou, cutting the travel time between the two from three hours to 47 minutes. headtopics.com
Earlier this month, the country debuted a bullet train specifically designed towithstand freezing temperatures. The CR400AF-G train can travel up to 350 kilometers per hour in weather as cold as -40 degrees Celsius (-40 degrees Fahrenheit). Read more: CNN »

One question: what happens if there is a crash? Wow! Oh good! They can get the payoffs to JoJo and Hunty's offshore accounts at lightning speeds now. China is only relevant to drop nukes on. Put that on a wheel and make electricity. Hint for any electrical engineers out there. So when they have a major crash , at 620 km/ hr. everyone will be killed !
The world achieves Level 'Star Wars', and here we sit. Yeah, but do they have a Garden of American Heroes? I can be you daddy if you're interested text me on my number+15673183231 The Chinese do infrastructure better than anybody. I take my hat off to them. Well they're way behind doesn't China know we have flying cars
This is what I'm down bad for. Sounds too fast to me, but I digress! CHINA IS NOW THE WORLD LEADER DO TO IDIOTS AT CNN Corporate Socialism in the US...get the money out of politics. Meanwhile in America Trump still talking about “clean coal” and we got trains derailing after failing multiple inspections and people bitching about and dodging taxes to infrastructure while also bitching about declining infrastructure
We have the Trump train in America. It’s slow, runs on dirty coal & crippling hate & if you’re a POC, LGBTQ or a woman you sit in economy way in the back. China owns our economy and is more advanced than us. We have to do something about this They need to stop torturing/killing/eating dogs + cats!! EndDCMT
Puts the UK HS2 Project to shame & will probably be 1/2 the cost & delivered within 1/2 the time 🙄 Woww this is incredible NigeriaGov will get here soon.. Y aquí emocionados por el Metro de Quito!!! Train tracks must be good for a smooth ride, not like here. Science and research, the two main reasons China is kicking our a$$. That and the fact that one of our political parties is🦇 💩 crazy
This won’t end well Meanwhile we had a president that didn’t think global warming was real... Canada had a display at Expo 86 that showcased this technology. Some wanted it to go across the prairies. 别瞎吹，我们250的高铁还多的是呢。托你们的福，当年勾结国内公知绞杀了我们的350 Chinese news network Let’s hope the trains last longer than their hospitals.
Well this looks safe. Same concept for hyperloop When’s infrastructure week? Glory to China Are we heading into this direction? 🧐 The US and western world ultra capitalist system shifted manufacturing to China because it was cheap to do so. The stupidity of it is now playing out. All those component parts for every machine under the sun.....did they not think China would start making copies?
And here we are upgrading tracks from 110kmph to 130kmhr 😂 SandeepPpl sohanjitmallick looks like a dolphin... PaulTyredagh81 Maglev technology was invented in the UK. Why don't we have any? They need to clean up the covid mess they started All about engineering.. 👇📖 I'm more interested to know what safety features they have. :p
someday the US will catch up to China, even in technology. I heard about that is that the train that will go to and from Africa to China Maybe the us should do something like this instead of having the public transport of a third world country... Kind of like teleportation GirlsLove_Top
