Did you ever see a top spinning around and suddenly it gives a big twitch then stabilizes again for a short time...
That happens because the top is spinning on a surface and is slowing down due to friction. The twitch is because of a surface irregularity encountered by the spinning axis of the top. There are no surface irregularities in space.
