So I am having trouble with this one, I was wondering if an object could have more than one axis of rotation. More than one axis of rotation goes against what I think is possible until I thought about a coin, at which point I was stumped, if the coin was rotating in the way a coin rotates when you spin it like a spinning top but was also spinning in a way in which it resembles a wheels rotation BOTH AT THE SAME TIME, would it have two axis of rotation? If so how is that possible and If not what would the single axis look like? Also for simplicity sake imagine that the coin is rotating in outer space. I am so utterly confused. I would really appreciate an explanation of why this is the way it is. Thank you for your time.
