B Superfluid Perpetual Motion?

  1. Aug 21, 2016 #1
    Yes, I'm aware of the countless threads about perpetual motion here. Not sure if this idea has been considered with superfluids, though.

    I'm no physics expert (basically a laymen), but the idea of a superfluid in perpetual motion intrigues me because I can't imagine why it wouldn't be possible (at least in a vacuum).

    If anyone can confirm that such a machine is theoretically possible, my main question is this: could we extract useful work from it?

    Of course not.

    Please review our rules (See: Physics Forums Global Guidelines). Discussions of "perpetual motion" machines are not allowed.
