Making a 3 Part Homopolar Motor from a AA battery

Thought I would share.

If I'm not mistaken, I believe that's the type of motor (scaled up of course) they use on nuclear aircraft carriers, since you need to throw a lot of power at it, silicon based rectifiers would be extremely costly for such a system. I could be wrong.
