I searched internet for valid explanation of Eric Laithwaites Royal Institute gyroscope demonstration. http://www.madsci.org/posts/archives/jan2000/948303982.Ph.r.html Yet, I still haven't found a satisfying answer as to why an old man could lift a 50lb gyro so easily. There must be an applications for this - at a basic level, consider moving cargo? If Mr Laithwaite could lift the gyroscope, what would happen if spun faster? I dont imagine that this is a perpetual motion machine. However it seems there are questions surrounding gyroscopes - that nobody answers and some ignore.
