Please read!! This is an animation I made in 1992 using PovRay to illustrate how a proposed idea for an antigravity machine might work. Apologies for the quality, it was uploaded a long time ago when youtube was just starting. Music by Andy Lee Robinson, "Escape to Osiris", http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jBdC_M...
It is *not* a perpetual motion machine, it illustrates how previous proposals tried to beat physics and failed.
Kudos to Bob Linton for actually building an amazing model of this, so you can see for yourself how it works in reality: http://youtu.be/Vy0wEdQL-yQ
The weights on the gears follow a cardiod path which intuition suggests it has a non-zero resultant. Would be nice if someone with more maths knowledge than I could integrate the forces properly, and prove it without making the assumption that the resultant is zero. I expect it to all balance out.
However, this is the question I have - what would happen with heavy excited ions running at relativistic speeds on the far side? Would the resultant angular momentum then still be zero?
