    Hi all,

    I need to get a friend a present and as a physicist I really wana get them the 'science toy' kinda thing ... does anybody know the name for the encased photonic pressure experiment in which a fan shape has one black surface and a mirrored surface. When it placed in the sunlight the fan spins due to the photon pressure.

    Thanks !!!

    Try snooping around here . I don't have time to look through the catalogue now, but they used to sell them. I also don't know where you are, so can't help if you're not in North America.
