I'm not a scientist, and I don't know anything about physics...however! As I was sitting on the john doing my thing, I was thinking of this
thread/video/concept and it got me thinking...MAYBE someone here at ATS with more expertise can help answer/enlighten me...
Wouldn't perpetual motion be quite easy to harness in the vacuum of space? Without gravity and using materials to reduce friction, couldn't this
kind of machine be built here on Earth and put into motion (woka woka) once put into space?
I only think of this because I feel like if you took a ball on let's say the space station, and spun it in the air, would it not keep spinning until
something interrupts it? AGAIN, this is not my forte...but I would like to know if this kind of machine would be possible to create once gravity is
no longer an issue. THANKS in advance to anyone that catches this!
