    Regarded as the “smallest gyroscope” in the world, this object can spin at up to 600 million revolutions per minute – a staggering million radians per second.




    It is being used to study the phenomenon of rotational quantum friction.

    Did you mean obstruse or abstruse. I couldn't find a definition for the word you used.
    Speaking badly about people after they are gone and jumping on the bash the band wagon must do very well for a low self-esteem.

    Er, if I remember correctly, obstruse and abstruse are the same thing, simply different spelling variants. For a moment I thought he said "obtuse", which would... be a bit belligerent.

    It seems obstruse is called an eggcorn of abstruse. Don't yell at me, it wasn't my idea to call it an eggcorn.

    Whew! You saved my sorry ass! Thank you! I don't use any fancy electronic "proofread" business, and often words which pop into my head are being brought back from essentially another life! joc

    Don't feel bad, I didn't know what obstruse or abstruse meant, that's why I had to look it up.
