Can a gyroscope tell if Earth is a spinning ball?


Can a gyroscope tell if Earth is a spinning ball?

Well, Yes it can, according the Foucault in 1852, who conducted an experiment that is nonchalantly breezed over in Media and science books



Jean Bernard Léon Foucault was a French physicist best known for his demonstration of the Foucault pendulum, a device I will cover in detail in a later post. His gyroscope is on the right (below)best-foucault-gyroscope-comparison-axis-latestscreenshot-from-2016-02-11-01_48_33

I thought this would be an excellent experiment to recreate with modern high precision technology and electric motors (on the left, above). So I did…
The premise is that if the Earth were moving, as we are taught, then a Gyroscope
spun up & ‘rigid in space’ on earth, would reflect this
movement by rotating 15 degrees per hour over a 3/6/12 hr

This video is not intended to provide proof of anything to
the viewer, It is provided as evidence in order for the viewer
to conduct their own experiments and build on this
knowledge base.


For any naysayers thinking the attached motor was some how to blame for the lack of precession, here’s an example from Rob Durham of a similar experiment but without the motor…

…And if you think the friction in the gimbal bearing would stop it rotating, check out my bearing friction experiment demonstrating it’s capabilities to register the alleged slow spin of earth (Cracking music by B.o.B too)


How and why is this important? Well let Bob from Globebusters, a pilot for 35 years, HAM Radio licence holder and electrical engineer, explain why the humble gyroscope is the number one proof that we live on a stationary plane

Here a time stamped clip of Bob discussing the gyroscope from a pilots point of view and the upcoming experiments they have planned it in the Flat Earth Fleet of planes at their disposal. He also bad mouths Leon Foucault which is always welcome on this blog, see here, here & here

Sadly I’ve not found any documentation to suggest that Airy ever performed the experiment himself, but his propensity to call experiments, that show no spin of the earth, a “failure” (see Airy’s Failure) speaks volumes about his confirmation bias.

However, that aside, the 7th Astronomer Royal does state that “By this device the action of gravity is eliminated” This is a fundamental property of a spinning gyroscope and even mainstream modern science has to admit it.

When I say that modern science agrees that gravity does not affect the gyroscope, I mean they say this in veiled ways but rarely outright. Terms like “Rigidity in Space” & “Torque free movement” are referred to and, of course we were all taught that ‘gravity’ exerts a torque.


When they refer to gravity with regards the gyroscope, they are describing the laws of density and buoyancy, which they insist on calling gravity.


They will include little g and big G in there equations, then cancel them out in the footnotes.


When in reality the real equations don’t include gravity at all



This removal of gravity is the reason why a gyroscope is perfect to demonstrate the stationary plane, being as the go-to answer to all heliocentric paradoxes is the ‘magick’ of gravity (RIP gravity)


Test it yourself, and let me know

Here’s is a great follow-up on Foucault’s Gyroscope experiment by Rob Durham, along with conclusive proof from an aviation gyrocompass that the Earth is not moving

    Great website! I’ve been a flat earther for 4 days! It all makes perfect sense. Thank you for your collation of information!

      I like your videos. I have done the same type of test and I came up with the same thing as you did. And you are correct, there isn’t any thing about the gyroscope notes that should have been there. I looked at Léon Foucault’s life, and he, apparently did not get much schooling. But he wanted to put across the science wording to regular people, and when I read that, I thought how could he do that if he didn’t know the science world, or come from the science world? But back to the gyroscope, as I type this, I have my motorized one going and it has been going for three hours and no movement. I even switched the polarity, and again, no movement. I want to do the same test with it pointing north, east south and west. Thank you for making these videos.

    I came up with a device that will show that the earth is round or flat. It doesn’t use anything that could be messed with unless it is touched. It doesn’t use apps, computers, gyroscopes, lasers, etc. Any of the normal “flat earth” tools. If you are interested, please contact me. Thank you.
