A fun model to make, with an interesting history.

No it doesn't. Go into outer space and spin a ball. It will spin forever assuming it doesn't interact any planets, asteroids, etc. What is impossible is getting any energy out of it and having it still spin. As long as no energy is taken away from the object (aka no friction) it can in fact spin forever. But no, this isn't possible on earth unless you artificially create a vacuum and some kind of magnetic levitation so there is absolutely no friction.

Perpetual motion doesn't seem to work, what am I doing wrong?
