Curious Minds Did You Know: The word gyroscope comes from the greek Gyros "a circle" and skopos "watcher" as the gyroscope shows that the earth rotates.

This a tea light that can be used to heat the water inside the copper spiral and the recoil from the steam makes the Gyro spin for as long as the tea light is lit. It is a beautifully simple demonstration of a steam gyro.
