A Brief History of Perpetual Motion Machines

Saturday, February 20th, 2010, 4:30 pm
Lecture by Hillel Wayne

Location: meet up in tearoom, move to Ryerson.

Abstract:

Perpetual motion machines have a long and colorful history. People from all walks of life have tried and failed to achieve infinite energy, all stopped by a very minor flaw: every part of science ever. The lecture will provide an overview of various machines and why they don’t work. Some focus will be given to scientific uses of perpetual motion and the new zero point energy (ZPE) fad.
