Spinning without pushing!

When an object spins on its axis, it rotates due to the force that has been applied to it. Watch this clip as our scientist explains how rotational movement works, and how the energy of an object spinning in one direction causes another object to spin in the opposite direction. It's just like a gyroscope!
