China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation (CASIC) has successfully launched a new mode of transport that will allow passengers and cargo to be transported at speeds up to 1000 km/h This is reported by the portal Gizmochina.
This system will become similar to Elon Musk Hyperloop project, according to which trains do not travel on rails, but literally hover in vacuum tunnels. At the same time, Hyperloop has never been fully implemented in any country in the world.
CASIC built a test site in the Chinese city of Datong — its length is 2 km. It is reported that during the experiment, a small passenger capsule was able to reach speeds of up to 50 km/h and overcome 210 meters. It is expected that soon the test track will be increased to 60 km, so that it can test prototype vehicles at speeds up to 1000 km/h. It is known that modern trains in China are capable of reaching speeds of 350 km/h.
Earlier, BAGNET reported that in Hungary created a two-story inflatable "yacht" electric.
