Special Report: Fastest On Earth

Fastest on Earth: An IEEE Spectrum Radio Special Report

To explore what’s fastest on earth we’ve roamed the globe to check out speedy things on wheels, tracks, legs or wings, and in the water. We visited England to see a supersonic car, South Korea for the world’s fastest elevator, Shanghai for a magnetically levitated train, Florida for the swiftest helicopter, the Netherlands for a record-setting bike, France’s Brittany coast for a winged boat that sails faster than the wind, and more.
