Some of the fastest trains in the world are out of this world, breaking the world record at speeds over 300 kilometers per hour (186 miles per hour).
Elon Musk and Tesla have built the fastest train in the world — the Tesla Hyperloop One — with a top speed of 750 kilometers per hour (439 miles per hour). He’s also built the Hyperloop 2 prototype, which Elon Musk says will travel at 700 kilometers per hour (430 miles per hour) at some point in the future.
Hyperloop will get even faster in several years when European train maker Siemens is set to bring a train capable of reaching 706 kilometers per hour (459 miles per hour) to Cologne in 2021.
Other iconic names in train-making are also building breaking-the-speed-limit trains.
At the weekend, engineers broke the world record for magnetic levitation (maglev) train technology with a train hitting a speed of 1,300 kilometers per hour (760 miles per hour) in Berlin. The train, built by Siemens, entered the 200-kilometer high-speed train speed race held by the German federal government.
Between 1966 and 1983, Switzerland’s Concorde was also the fastest plane in the world, reaching 300 km/h (186 mph) as the fastest commercial jet aircraft at the time.
