    I had a prof. that did this demonstration. He was very good and made Physics very accessible.

    Walter Lewin`s OCW classes are easily the best physics lessons available out there. I`m so glad MIT has made them freely and publicly available on the internet.

    Great stuff.
    When I was a nipper we used to go to the annual science lectures at the Royal Institution in London. One year Professor Eric Laithwaite did a series on gyroscopes and conservation of momentum. Schools were given tickets for children that expressed an interest in science, I was one of the lucky ones. This is TV footage for those interested:

    He did a further demo in the 80`s which I thought was more impressive:

    And this is how we get tall rockets to fly straight and keep control of our spaceships in zero gravity.

    From Miss Nafissatou Muhammed,

My father was a highly reputable business magnet who operated in the capital of Ivore Coast during his days.
    It is sad to say that he passed away mysteriously in France during one of his business trips abroad on the 20th May 2011. Though his sudden death was linked or rather suspected to have been masterminded by an uncle of mine who travelled with him at that time. But God knows the truth! My mother died when I was just 6yrs old, a
