Lecture 4 - The jabberwock

In this lecture, Laithwaite used the behavioural gyroscopes in an attempt to challenge the validity of Newton’s Laws of motion and the laws of thermodynamics.

This proved extremely controversial and the vast majority of the scientific community did not accept his interpretation of gyroscopic behaviour.
