According to a previously published report, researchers working on the project in Datong, in central China’s Shanxi province, have indicated that they aim to combine rail and aerospace technologies to create ultra-high-speed mega-transport that runs in low-vacuum pipelines. A team at state-owned China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation (CASIC) hopes to eventually be able to operate a maglev train in a tube of ultra-thin air.

‘Space-like’ travel on land
Simply put, these trains will ‘fly over the ground’ at the speed of airplanes. Maglev technology completely eliminates friction. Reduces blockages and noise when running trains in low vacuum pipelines. There are two major problems in this train transport. The journey of this technology can be compared to a space station floating in space, which travels very fast without any obstacles in the vacuum. The rapid development of new industrial materials in China has made the development of maglev trains possible.

A journey of 30 km in seven and a half minutes
China’s top priority is to develop high-speed rail. It aims to connect a wider region, which includes not only big cities but also remote areas. Train travel saves time and costs for large groups. Currently, China has only one maglev line in commercial use. It connects Shanghai’s Pudong Airport to the city’s Longyang Road station. This 30 km journey takes only seven and a half minutes. The train runs at a speed of 430 km per hour.
