Speed is something that many people want to have when it comes to a number of things. Just like in running, a lot of people want to have the power of speed so that they can run as fast as no one could ever imagine. When it comes to automobiles, there are also a lot of people in the entire world who want to have a car that can run very fast, so that they can arrive in their desired destination in just a blink of an eye, or they can escape from those bad people who are chasing them. No matter what your reasons are in wishing to have the power of speed, here are the top 15 most fastest things in the world that you might want to know:
15. Usain St. Leo Bolt C.D.
Usain is a professional sprinter, and he is Jamaican in nationality. Until this very day, no one has ever break his Olympics record of 200 meters in just 19.30 seconds as well as his 100 meters in just 9.69 seconds. And together with his excellent teammates, he holds the Olympics record of 4×100 meters relay in just 37.10 seconds. Because of this, he is considered to be the fastest man in the world.
14. Barabus TKR
The Barabus TKR is the one that breaks the record of the Bugatti Veyron as the fastest production car in the entire world. Barabus TKR is a supercar that has a 1005 horsepower. In just 1.67 seconds, this supercar is capable of doing 0-98kph.
In every hour, Cheetah is capable enough in running 70 miles. Thus, it’s no longer surprising why it is considered to be the fastest animal the world has to offer. It’s all thanks to its slender, long-legged body that promotes incredible speed.
In the US state of New Mexico, particularly in the Los Alamos National Laboratory, the renowned company IBM developed a supercomputer known as roadrunner. Roadrunner can have a performance of 1.7 petaflops, making it to be the fastest computer ever.
Sailfish is known to be the fastest fish that is ever discovered. It can have a maximum speed of 110 km/h (70 mph). The color of this fish ranges from blue to grey, and it lives in the warm parts of the ocean.
10. JR-Maglev MLX01
The JR-Maglev MLX01 is the fastest train ever recorded in the world. This train can be found in the beautiful country of Japan. The maximum speed recorded for this train is 581 km/h (367 mph), and there is no other trains in the world who have achieved such incredible speed.
The Insano is actually a water slide, which is the highest water slides that can ever be found in the entire world. It has a height of 41 meters, which is equivalent to a 14-storey building. Apart from that, the Insano is also the fastest water slide today. In just 4-5 seconds, you can already arrive at the bottom part with the maximum speed of 105 km/h (65mph).
K-222 is formerly being called K-162, and this is the fastest submarine in the world. It was used by the Soviet Union Fleet in the entire duration of life of this sea vessel. The maximum speed ever recorded for the K-222 was 44.7 knots.
7. North American X-15
The North American X-15 is known to be the fastest manned plane in the world. This is a rocket-powered aircraft that was used as one of the experimental aircrafts of the USN, NASA, and USAF. When it was tested, this aircraft exceeded the altitude of 50 miles (80.47 km. 264,000ft.) that surpassed the spaceflight requirement of USAF. Even so, the fastest speed ever recorded from this aircraft was 4,519 mph (7,273 km/h).
6. Westland Lynx ZB500
If you think that a rotor helicopter is the fastest helicopter that can ever be found in the entire world, then you are absolutely wrong. The fastest one if the Westland Lynx ZB500. The speed record of a rotor helicopter is just more than 250 miles in every hour but only when it is out of control, while the Westland Lynx ZB500 has a record of 249.1 miles in every hour that is in control of course.
5. F6 Tornado Wind in Oklahoma
The wind caused by the tornado had a record speed of 318 mph, which totally wrecked 250 homes and killed 4 people. It ravaged in the US state of Oklahoma way back on May 3, 1999. The tornado was categorized as F6, which is a very destructive kind of tornado.
4. Peregrine Falcon
The Peregrine Falcon is also popular of its other name, which is Peregrine. Historically speaking, this bird was branded in North America as the “Duck Hawk”. It is the fastest bird ever recorded in the history. It has a record speed of more than 322 km/h (200 mph).
3. New Horizons
The New Horizons is the fastest spacecraft being recorded in the world. Before the engine of this spacecraft shut down, 16.26 km/s or 58,536 km/h (10.1 mps or 36,360 mph) was the maximum Earth-related velocity it achieved. The New Horizons is actually a robotic spacecraft owned by NASA. Its launching day happened on January 19, 2006.
Basing it on the Modern Physics, the fastest thing in this world is the light. Fact is, 299,792,458 m/s is the exact speed of light. In every second, it is around 186,282.397 miles.
Tachyons are particles that are under the putative class, and its maximum speed is way faster than the speed of light. A physicist named Arnold Sommerfeld was the one who firstly proposed Tachyons. Later on, Gerald Feinberg named them. The speed of light is just the slowest speed of Tachyons.
These are the top 15 most fastest things in the world that you should know. Without a doubt, their speeds are extremely fast that you might think that these are impossible to achieve. Can you believe their incredible speed?
