China is building a floating train that could be faster than air travel

Tierr@_de_N@die: As far as air travel doesn't find a clear way to reduce its CO2 impacts, the bullets trains will play a more central roll in the future of global mobility.

In 2017, Fuxing bullet trains went into service on the 1300 km Beijing-Shanghai line, significantly reducing journey times. These trains travel at around 350 km/h, but the prototype maglev will be so fast it could provide a competitive alternative to air travel, according to its developer.
