Ok...I cannot remember where I had seen it....I believe it was in a science book in high school because I remember a picture being associated with it. It went something like this: Some famous physicist/scientist had a very heavy gyroscope at the end of a long metal rod. He could not lift this, even if he was lifting from the center of gravity. When he got the gyroscope spinning fast enough, he was able to lift it from the end as well as the middle. The article never talked about this any farther and I can't find any information to support or debunk this claim. My physics brain says that this can't be true. What do you guys think?
