The Maglev train travels 4,000 miles/hour
The Maglev train uses magnets for propulsion.
It is fully suspended by a magnetic field and requires less than 2% of the energy planes use.
The train has no wheels, so nothing can wear up.
The maximum speed of this technology as used in Japan since 2005, is 361 miles/hour (581 km/hour). However this version of the technology is dated.
New and perfect
ET3 has established a new Maglev train that can travel 4,000 miles/hour (6,430 km/hour). It’s a perfect, motionless, frictionless tunnel which can go over land or under water. It’s a travel from Washington DC to Beijing (China) in just 2 hours.
- Car sized passenger capsules travel in 1.5m (5′) diameter tubes on frictionless maglev
- Air is permanently removed from the two-way tubes that are built along a travel route
- Airlocks at stations allow transfer of capsules without admitting air
- Linear electric motors accelerate the capsules, which then coast through the vacuum for the remainder of the trip using no additional power
- Most of the energy is regenerated as the capsules slow down
- ET3 can provide 50 times more transportation per kWh than electric cars or trains.
This is the future of continental and inter continental travel. Fast, clean with only a fraction of the energy usage, we use today to travel with the same means.
With the combination of Maglev-technology, green energy sources like solar and geothermal and advanced battery storage, there will be no reason to burn fossil fuels ever again.
