Riding Shanghai's maglev, the world's fastest train  MAR 22 2005

Riding Shanghai's maglev, the world's fastest train. "Four minutes of gravity-simulator-style acceleration later, in which the taxis on the parallel highway lose ground slowly, then quickly, then disappear as fast as if they were parked and you were whipping by at 220 miles per hour, you reach the peak speed for the tiny 20-mile run."
