    Editorial: Flywheel Safety
    If a flywheel were to fail, the energy escapes to do damage. A manufacturer could reduce risk by operating the flywheel at several times below its failure speed, but this will also substantially reduce its energy density. Flywheels are tested to determine their maximum spin potential. As the operating speed comes closer to the failure speed, risk reduction shifts to containment systems.
