Chinese engineers seek to consolidate theirworld leadership in the production and operation of bullet trains. The only worthy rival of China's new projects can only be the "vacuum" Hyperloop from Ilon Mask. Trains of Chinese developers use the principle of maglev trains operating using a magnetic field. An ambitious plan is to disperse trains to a speed of 1000 km / h, which is comparable to the speed of aircraft.
Test road for a new Chinese projectwill lie inside the vacuum tube, and the electromagnetic field will create magnets cooled to a temperature close to absolute zero, which activates the effect of superconductivity. The construction of a 200 km long experimental section will begin next year in Hubei Province. By the end of the year, the first experimental train will be launched. At the first stage, it will move at a minimum speed of 600 km / h.
In the case of successful testing, the first commercial line over the high-speed train will connect Hubei with Guangzhou and its length will be 2,200 km. Travel time will be a little more than 2 hours.
The first section of the high-speed railwayusing the principle of Muggle trains, was created in China in 2002 by engineers from the German company Siemens. Then a section was put into operation between Pudong Airport and the central part of Shanghai. Then China began to independently implement high-speed road projects and a few years later broke into world leaders, creating a network of 30 thousand km of high-speed roads.
In China, it is believed that the journey of ironroads can be made more efficient than air travel with airplanes. Especially after reaching a speed of 1000 km / h, when the travel time will be almost the same for the train, that for the plane. To date, the world record for speed on the railway belongs to Japan, which dispersed the composition to 603 km / h.
