Sad note of the 50 Breakthroughs:
Levitated trains with magnets.
Say goodbye to traffic jams. National Lab scientists developed
a technology that uses the attractive and repulsive forces of
magnets to levitate and propel trains. Maglev trains now ferry
commuters in Japan and China and will be operational in other
China and Japan actually build the systems and we sit on our damn hands because we do not believe in the Commonwealth (and no not communism)anymore. I got mine screw you! And if my memory is right these trains go close to 300mph
