Another World Record

So this week, the world speed record has been refreshed again by the Japanese Shinkansen Series L0 (a maglev train) for the 2nd time in 2 weeks.

The 7-car L0 achieved 590 km/h (367 mph) last week, on 16 April, and a whopping (not that 590 wasn't fast enough but pffft, it was only in the 500s) 603 km/h (375 mph) on this Tuesday, 21 April. Wow.
