Almost Hyperloop: in China, build a train, the speed of which is more than 600 km / h

AT   China is preparing for   construction of a line of magnetic-cushion trains that will   600   km / h.

What is a maglev train and   How is he   working

This is a high-speed train that can fill the gap between today's fastest aircraft, and   slow trains. His idea is   magnetic cushion, which is created in   account of repulsion from each other   the other two poles of the magnet. This is greatly simplified. Thanks to this it seems that the train slides over the roadway. While the technology is rolled on   test tracks in   Germany, France and   China. The only maglev train that already carries passengers in   end of 2017 was launched in   Beijing. But   its speed is not   much higher than the speed of a conventional train   - only 100   km / h.

Why it's cool

Because earlier it was more about   interesting technologies. Now about   direct life. it   there will be a full-fledged road line that will connect several regions. A   he   can develop speeds just above 600   km / h and   by   spirit is much closer to   aircraft or Hyperloop capsule than to   familiar trains. For example, the distance from   Kiev to   Lviv he   could   would cover a little less than   hour. It instead of 10 hours on   ordinary passenger train or 5 hours for   speed Intercity.

When they start

The technical plan was reviewed by 19 academicians and   experts who approved it unanimously. The exact terms of construction are not yet   call, but   knowing the Chinese, it will be fast.
