Many different types of magnetic bearings are known since a long time: “Active” and “passive”, “electrodynamic”, “electromagnetic”, “hybrid” etc. Certain types have found many applications and others none. A recent successful realization of a complex system (a momentum reaction sphere) based on a Lorentz-force type of bearing will be presented in more detail and the potential of as yet unexploited types of magnetic bearings will be briefly discussed.
