What Is The Fastest Rpm Ever Achieved?

The fastest rpm ever achieved was by a team of engineers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) in the United States. They designed and built a specialised electric motor that could rotate at up to 60 million revolutions per minute (rpm). This is about 1,000 times faster than the average car engine! The motor was used to power a small aircraft called Daedalus which flew for over 3 minutes and reached an altitude of nearly 10 kilometres.
