Lecture 5 - The time has come the Walrus said

In his fifth lecture, Laithwaite uses the concept of analogies (fairy stories) as a way to explain complex topics in science.

Laithwaite continues to explore the “inertial world” with more spinning gyroscopes, magnetic springs and objects which “fall upwards”.  As a finale Laithwaite demonstrates the creation of a “magnetic river” to exhibit his model of high speed transport using linear induction motors.
