High speed train goes into service in China

07.08.2008
The Velaro high speed train links Beijing and Tianjin

Just a week before the start of the 2008 Olympics, the Velaro officially entered passenger service in China. The Chinese Railway Minister Liu Zhi Jun and the Deputy Prime Minister Zhang Dejiang attended the inauguration ceremony.


The CH3, the MoR (Ministry of Railways) designation for the Velaro in China, is now the fastest high speed train in China.

A total of ten trains are running on the Beijing–Tianjin line at headways of 10 to 20 minutes, making 43 trips per day and direction. Five of these trains are from the new CRH 3 series. The Chinese Ministry of Railways offers 30-minute service on this 115-kilometer-long route.

Chinese Railways placed an order for 60 Velaro type trains. Three of them were built in Krefeld, Germany, while the other 57 units are being built by Tangshan Locomotive & Rolling Stock Works in Tangshan.

The Velaro recently set a new Chinese high speed record of 394.3 km/h on the newly opened high speed route between the Chinese capital Beijing and the coastal city of Tianjin.

For the first time ever, a cloud of ultra-cold atoms has been successfully created in space on board of a sounding rocket. The MAIUS mission demonstrates that quantum optical sensors can be operated even in harsh environments like space – a prerequi-site for finding answers to the most challenging questions of fundamental physics and an important innovation driver for everyday applications.

According to Albert Einstein's Equivalence Principle, all bodies are accelerated at the same rate by the Earth's gravity, regardless of their properties. This...

Im Focus: Interfacial Superconductivity: Magnetic and superconducting order revealed simultaneously

Researchers from the University of Hamburg in Germany, in collaboration with colleagues from the University of Aarhus in Denmark, have synthesized a new superconducting material by growing a few layers of an antiferromagnetic transition-metal chalcogenide on a bismuth-based topological insulator, both being non-superconducting materials.

While superconductivity and magnetism are generally believed to be mutually exclusive, surprisingly, in this new material, superconducting correlations...
