(Photos+Video) Wow Japan’s MagLev Train Sets World Speed Record!


Japan has been known for its bullet trains which hurdle passengers at 200mph and above. Japan’s MagLev or magnetic levitation trains have been the forerunner in the worlds high speed ground travel industry. The trains work by actually levitating 10cm (4inches) off the ground and using electrically charged magnets to propel itself forward. This makes for completely frictionless movement where no part of the train actually touches the track during travel Yesterday a Japan railway maglev train hit 607 kilometers per hour (374mph) on an experimental track in Yamanashi setting a new world record. The train spent 10 seconds traveling at 600 kph and traveled 1.8 kilometers (1.1 miles). So the train traveled 20 football fields in the time it took you to read the last 2 sentences. Check out the video after the jump!
