Is Earth's orbit around the Sun perpetual motion?
How about the orbit of any planet around any star? Or the orbit of any moon around any planet? Or an electron orbiting around an atomís nucleus?
How about Earth's rotational spin? How about an electron's spin?
Let's assume for a moment that all of these are examples of perpetual motion; or at the very least, motion that lasts for a VERY long time. And this motion is free, meaning that it costs no energy to start or perpetuate.
Now the question is how to attain energy from these movements.
I do know that spinning magnets can create electrical energy, and the Earth is magnetic. Therefore, it should be possible to harness energy out of Earth's spin and/or orbit.
The only question is how?
