I remember from my physics classes at school that one can generate an electrical current in a wire using magnets, and moving the wire through the magnetic field. Would it be possible to set up some magnets in a way that they could oscillate in relation to each other without any external aid? Could this device then be used to create a constant electrical current? I know that air friction and gravity would eventually cause the magnets to stop oscillating, but what if this device were to be suspended in space? And how long do magnets last anyway?
