Did I just figure out a possible perpetual motion solution?

I got an idea and decided to explore. Perpetual motion: a supposedly impossible idea that breaks the laws of engineering. To create perpetual motion you d have to make a device in which the output energy is greater than or equal to the input energy, so that, in theory, it could run itself forever. However, this has never been accomplished. I have an idea that may solve it, though it s a stretch. In space, there is hardly any gravity, and no air resistance. In space, there is almost nothing that could stop a small object from spinning. Could space be the solution to perpetual motion? Perhaps you could use a vacuum chamber to help, having the device inside to not have to go to space. Could anyone tell me if this breaks the rules for making perpetual motion? I would like to know if I just said a nice "**** you" to all the scientists and engineers who have tried and failed.
