The Incredible Chinese High-speed Rail

Updated 2017-10-01 15:31:52

Is this a magic trick, or scientific experiment? Well, it's maybe a bit of both. All aboard a high-speed train hurtling across the Chinese landscape at speeds up to 300 kilometers an hour!

During this nine-minute video, the coin kept its balance, prompting a surge in online viewers worldwide. Some took to performing similar experiments on high-speed trains in their own countries… with varying levels of success!

Although the Japanese high-speed train is also great, do you think that it is the safest? Or Shinkansen is the fastest? Think again! Chinese high-speed rail – or CRH –stands out in front, commanding the top-6 places in world speed rankings and some 60% of global high-speed track mileage.
