iron end inside the sphere and no aluminum edging, either; it is simply nothing
more than a very flat spool embedded into the poles of the sphere. Thus, the force
lines can now wander around freely inside the sphere; this by itself should not mat-
ter, since all of it does stay within the system; but couldn’t a reaction to the copper
shells occur because the alum. bridge lies right by the blowout magnet, which car-
ries the vertical bearings of the gyroscope? In the figure it intersects the blowout
magnet at right angles; it is accordingly asymmetrically distributed over the mag-
netic field.
Hence, like this:
The top view of the bridge is thus:
The question now is: Is it possible that this bridge, which naturally reacts to the
magnet by an increased current intake, would induce an image, so to speak, on the
copper shell, which then wants to turn the sphere outwardly? On closer consider-
ation, I think this is nonsense, as the current distribution in the magnet is quite sure-
ly of a similar kind, and the induction of the currents from the magnet to the bridge
