If someone were to send a probe out to interstellar space, bring it to a full stop and start rotating, would it continue rotating eternally? Or would drag from errant plasma slow it?
The outside would slow down and the inside would begin to rotate until the two were rotating at the same speed and no more power would be generated.What if you had the exterior rotating with a stationary generator in the core?
But it would be a way to store energy, though.There's no way to extract energy from this particular device without slowing it down.
