Ever since 3500 BC when the first wheel was used in Mesopotamia man has strived to find better ways of transport. Since then we have slowly progressed to automobiles, trains, boats, and even airplanes, but people have always progressed. So what will be the transportation of the future? The world’s fossil fuels are dwindling. Many people are not facing what is staring them in the face. Fossil fuels will not last forever, and they are causing problems in our environments.

The only problem that they will have is that this power is not exactly suitable for people’s present transportation. Even within this problem our transportation has flaws which can cause fatal accidents. So scientists are trying to come up with safer and faster modes of transportation. Maglev trains which are a very safe and efficient is a possible mode of transportation that could be used in the future. Maglevs are the fastest type of train in the twentieth century, but also the least used and built.

Maglevs will help shape the future transportation industries all over the world. This will provided faster transport, new technological advances, and will help decrease pollution. Although this amazing technology has some disadvantages it also has possibilities that could blow the human mind. By transferring our sights to using this technology people could help the world on a global scale by helping to decrease pollution, provide jobs opportunities, and etc…. Man has come a long way since the invention of the wheel and has done amazing feats. People continue to grow whether it is to the sky, in the ground beneath our feet, or to go as fast as man can go.
