[url]University of St Andrews scientists create 'fastest man-made spinning object' - BBC News
I discovered this article today, and it blew my mind.
Does anyone else know anything more about this?
EDIT: They think it broke up, but they are not sure.
It spuntaneously evaporated.
“The spinning sphere turned into a miniature gyroscope, stabilising itself. The ball cooled as it span to −233°C (−387°F, 40 Kelvin).”
Cooled as it [em]span[/em]? Is that the past tense of spin?I thought it was “spun”
Nevertheless, very interesting.
I wonder how they measured the temperature of something spinning that fast.
@ mtylerjr - I wonder how they did that too. Yea it should be spun.
