Engine driven by Steam Repulsion
Product Code: 1191a
Availability: In Stock



The idea of the HeroEngine, also known as an aeolipile, is considered to be the first recorded approach to constructing a steam driven engine. The device consists of an air-tight glass sphere with curved pipes projecting from it. Water inside the rotating chamber is heated by an external burner (not included). As the water boils, the steam escapes through the pipes creating a reaction force that causes the device to spin.
