Magnetic Levitation in the News

The future of transport? 'Floating' hyperloop train hits a record-breaking speed of 387mph - and could outpace a plane one day
T-Flight uses magnetic levitation (maglev) technology, where magnets are used to lift the pods above the track, letting them seamlessly glide. This eliminates the need for wheels and therefore any ... continued..
Hovering Questions About Magnetic Levitation
We tried to position one magnet over another by pitting their repellent forces against each other but [K&J Magnetics] explains why this will never work and how levitation can be done with ... continued..
A Wild Experiment With Magnets Actually Suspended Gravity
Gravity basically isn’t part of the physics equation when spin-stabilized levitation enters the fray. As research continues to build on a new type of magnetic levitation—which features a spinning ... continued..
The Old Ping-Pong Ball Levitation Trick
[Jacob] has put a slightly new twist on the levitating ball trick with his ping-pong ball levitation machine. We’ve all seen magnetic levitation systems before. Here on Hackaday, [Caleb] built ... continued..
Scientists finally find why spinning magnet causes 2nd magnet to levitate
While magnetic levitation is a well-known concept, this specific instance perplexed researchers since it defied traditional physics laws. Rasmus Bjørk, a professor at DTU, was intrigued by the ... continued..
Scientists use levitating magnets to understand quantum gravity
Scientists have identified a subtle gravitational force acting on a minuscule particle through an innovative approach. continued..
Magnetic levitation demonstrated using a Dremel tool spinning a magnet at 266 Hz. (VIDEO)
Magnetic levitation demonstrated using a Dremel tool spinning a magnet at 266 Hz. The rotor magnet is 7x7x7 mm3 and the floater magnet is 6x6x6 mm3. This video show the physics described in the ... continued..
China’s hyperloop is fastest high-speed train in history
The China Aerospace Science and Industry Corporation ran a test and a high-speed train, using maglev technology, has broken its previous record of 387mph. continued..
Magnetic Levitating Bearing for a bi-Ventricular Assist Device
Sign up to receive important email messages about the Imagine RIT Festival this year, and future years, too (save-the-date announcement, event announcements, and post ... continued..
China sets world record for fastest hyperloop train
A Chinese missile manufacturer claims to have built the fastest train ever, a hyperloop train that travels in a vacuum tube using magnetic levitation. continued..
A Wild Experiment With Magnets Actually Suspended Gravity
Gravity basically doesn’t factor into a new style of rotation-based magnetic levitation being developed. This spin-stabilized levitation uses a rotating magnet to steady the levitating magnet ... continued..
