Obama Calling For $53B For High Speed Rail
President Obama is calling for $53B to be appropriated for the construction of high-speed rail in the United States over the next 6 years.
Don't panic but: End of the cheap oil in sight?
Chinese Jiaotong University currently have a prototype Maglev that can hit 600 Km/h and are planning a smaller ‘Express’ version which will hit the dizzying speed of 1000 Km/h!!
Actually, the only real problem is to find long enough straight line. Human body is able to withstand high speed rail turning only at 200 Km/h.
