Will trains overtake airplanes unexpectedly?

Wed 14 Feb | 16:20 - 17:00

The possibility of trains surpassing airplanes in the future of transportation is intriguing. Developments in high-speed rail and Hyperloop technology raise this potential. High-speed trains excel in short-distance travel, offering speed, efficiency, and cost-effectiveness. However, their range and velocity limitations make them less suitable for longer distances. Hyperloop, promising a revolutionary approach with its high speed and efficiency, could potentially bridge this gap for long-distance travel. Yet, it’s still in developmental stages, facing technical and feasibility challenges.
