Wait, america is building the fastest train known to man? Yes, the answer is yes.

Above: the "supertrain", exiting the vacuume chamber.
I know what you, whoever you may happen to be, are thinking; "China built the fastest train known to man, like, a gazillion years ago.  so... ya".  Well you are right.  Currently the fastest train in the world is the Shanghai Maglev, a train able to reach speeds up to 270 mph, and was built around 7 years ago.  Another train, one in Beijing, recently tried to go about 500 mph, but failed miserably, slamming into the cracked, Chinese desert floor with an extremely loud thud.  That other train, the one in shanghai, wouldn't be able to go from New York city to L.A. in 41 minuets.  to do that it would have to go about 2100 mph. but, another one that America is about to build will be able to do so.  It does this be riding through a complete vacuum chamber.  A complete vacuum chamber is, in this case, a tube that has had all the air in it sucked out.  This will reduce nearly 89% of the friction, and will make the train ride through the under-ground tunnel in almost complete weightlessness . The cabin you sit in will not only be extremely luxurious, but, because of the vacuum chamber, there will be almost complete silence, and it will not even feel like the train is moving.  My thinking is that the train will be completed by 2057, with the longest train in the world, one from Paris, France to Seoul, Korea, all the way to  the U.S. (city unknown), being completed about 10 years later.  Is the age of  the train over? Hardly, in fact I think that by 2070 the tables will turn, and planes will become out dated.  Go from new york to la in 41 minutes in your lifetime? Yes.  I can safely say this, because of the fact that they have already started to develop a high-speed locomotive that goes from Boston to new york city, in about 6.3471 minutes. Yes, I think the United States are finally catching up to the current Era of technological advancement, and may even  start to pull ahead of the others.

New blog,

To those of you reading this (that is  probably all of you) I hope for you to continue  to do so, and to not jump to any in-mature conclusions.  The aim of this blog is not to talk to you about what I like, but to instead find others who are interested in generally the same things I am, and talk to you about that.  This blog will, mainly, talk about things related to the sciences.  I do not wish to bore you, so we won't talk about boring science, we will instead talk about really, really awesome science.  Since I find the science involved in cooking interesting, we will also talk about that some too. there will also be the occasional video.  So, I deeply encourage you to become a follower of Sammy's Stuff, and to also check out my you tube channel (click here: Catfish Cameras, for awesomeness)
