Something about Tesla

something about tesla

Although the economic depression had compromised production and trade, most of the major US cities nevertheless remained a source of activity. One day, among the many of vehicles that traveled along the streets, a luxurious car stopped next to a sidewalk near the traffic lights of an intersection. A passer-by noticed the absolute absence of steam or fumes from the exhaust pipe. The passer-by approached the driver and commented through the open window on the absence of fumes from the exhaust. The driver then quietly replied that this car “had no engine”.

This statement is not as extravagant or malicious as it may seem. There was a certain truth to it. In fact, that particular car did not have an internal combustion engine; instead it had an electric motor. If the driver had bothered to complete his explanation to the passerby, he could have told him that the electric motor was not powered by batteries – moreover by no type of “fuel”.

The driver was Petar Savo, and although he was driving that car he was not responsible for his incredible characteristics. These were the work of another man, a man whom Petar Savo knew as an “uncle”: not others but the genius of electricity Nikola Tesla.

In the 1890s, Nikola Tesla revolutionized the world with his inventions to exploit electricity, giving us the electric induction motor, alternating current (AC), radiotelegraphy, remote radio control, fluorescent lamps and other scientific wonders. Actually it was Tesla’s polyphase alternating current and not Thomas Edison’s continuous current that inaugurated the modern technological era.

Tesla did not rest on his laurels but continued to make fundamental discoveries in the fields of energy and matter. He discovered cosmic rays decades before “Millikan” and was the first to develop X-rays, cathode ray tubes and other types of valves.

However, potentially, the most significant finding of Nikola Tesla was that electrical energy can be propagated through Earth and also around it in an atmospheric area called the Schumann cavity. It extends from the surface of the planet to the ionosphere, at a height of about 80 kilometers. The extremely low frequency electromagnetic waves, around 8 hertz (the Schumann resonance, or the pulsation of the earth’s magnetic field) travel, practically without losses, to every point on the planet. Tesla’s energy distribution system and its dedication to free energy meant that with the appropriate electrical device tuned correctly to transmit energy, anyone in the world could have tapped into his system.

The development of such a technology posed too great a threat to the enormous interests of those who produce, distribute and sell electricity. Tesla’s discovery ended with the suspension of financial support for his research, the ostracism by official science and the gradual removal of his name from history books. From the position of superstar of science in 1895, Tesla in 1917 was virtually a “no one”, forced into small scientific experiments in solitude. In his annual meetings with the press on his birthday, a slim figure in the open pre-war style coat would have told reporters the discoveries and developments of his ideas. It was a sad mixture of ego and frustrated genius.

At the beginning of the twentieth century, the prospects for electric cars were bright. Futurists had anticipated electric vehicles powered by batteries that were mechanically simpler, quieter, odorless, easy to use and with fewer problems than any car with a petrol engine.

As soon as the speed and reliability of petrol-powered cars improved, electric cars were abandoned and remained the favorites of retirees and older ladies. The introduction of electric starting in petrol cars put the final nail in the coffin of electric cars.

Since then, no one has ever been able to reproduce the electric engine that Tesla had successfully tested, the engine that could have given free energy for the masses, or was just a myth?

    Unfortunately, Tesla’s grand scheme failed when his financial backer, J.P. Morgan, became fed up with years of failure

  2. Skye Sharp says:

    according to my research, in particular, he discovered that the Earth, or rather the earth’s crust, was an excellent conductor of electricity, since a lightning that hits the ground, creates waves of energy that move from one side of the earth to the other. He installed in his own laboratory a huge coil that was meant to send electrical impulses in the subsoil, so as to allow transfer of electricity to bulbs placed at a considerable distance. According to the sources of the time, there is no actual evidence that Tesla managed to transmit electricity over long distances. Stand by since he later changed his approach to making the wireless electric current transmission. He claimed that the area of ​​the earth’s atmosphere located 80 km above the ground, called ionosphere, it was strongly conductor, and therefore could be exploited to transport electricity to great distances. But it was necessary to solve the problem of how to send signals electric at such an altitude.

  3. Sian Galloway says:

    Tesla worked precisely for companies that produced energy and that provided for its transport! It is easy to see that these when they understood where it was search for Tesla, they took the scientist’s support and theirs financial contribution.

  4. Dina Conroy says:

    Nikola Tesla was one of the most important scientists of the past century and it is not right for it to be forgotten again, the his discoveries, his inventions, his intuitions, his hallucinations, deserve to be read and gutted thoroughly.

  5. Aanya Collins says:

    Or was it fired fromJP because he was going to build a system that in his mind was not meant to be monetized?

  6. Angelina Felix says:

    This is what is said, but, honestly, do you really think that if he was a genius like no others he would have kept the patents in his house up until his death knowing that they would immediately be seized? It make no sense. If he really had those unique patents and he did not want anyone to steal his works he could just destroy them. By ll means, it was said that Tesla was very concern on matter such as giving away free energy to all mankind, so why not spending the last part of his years and finding a good successor then train him so that he/she could continue what he had started? Conspiracy theorist are quick on saying: “Nikola Tesla was the first to build the car propelled by cosmic energy”, “This is what will build hope for the future of humanity” and other big statements of this kind, yet again, what’s the point of bringing those secretes with you when you die? No one will ever benefit.

  7. Isobel Pacheco says:

    the radar was his discovery. And the speedometer, the injector, neon lamps, loudspeakers, cathode ray tube….

  8. Geraint Gardner says:

    The energy problem is today as never before a problem of life or of death – even this Tesla had prophesied – and have a available an unlimited source of energy, it is more than ever essential.

  9. Asad Dyer says:

    Your not happy about the AC current, light bulb and all other sort of inventions that are still used today in every home? That helps, and it is thanks to him if we have it today.

  10. Daryl Milner says:

    Tesla wrote a futuristic article on Century Magazine, affirming the possibility of capturing the energy released by the sun and proposing a “world communication system” useful for communicate by telephone, transmit news, music, images, stock performance, character information military or private without the need, once again, to appeal to the wires: the radio had practically theorized, the modern telephony mobile phone, television and internet.

  11. Janice Schwartz says:

    You are both wrong, all those inventions did not come from either Tesla or Edison but teams of hundreds of people was involved. Before judging my assertion, read this interesting article from Forbes so that after you can do your due diligence and refine your search. You probably have believed the wrong thing for all this time. Here is the link to the article:

  12. Abdurahman Chang says:

    hearing the news of the transmission of the first radio signal by Marconi, he reacted by stating that the Italian scientist had used seventeen of his patents.

  13. Emrys Goulding says:

    Upon his death, CIA agents immediately entered his room and took away all the documents and patents they found. Since then, humanity could only guess the secrets that the Serbian genius had brought with him to the grave.

  14. Kirsten Mack says:

    Ironically, in 1917 he was granted, for his contribution to scientific knowledge, an honor entitled, to Edison, the Edison Medal, which this time, who knows why, he accepted. It is worth remembering that Edison tried in every way to discredit Tesla’s ingenious work, he came to design for the

  15. Rami Mcconnell says:

    The debate of who was the better inventor will never stop, perhaps 1000 years from now we will still ask our selves “who was the impostor, the genius, and so on”. It is just our nature, we need the hero and the villain.

  16. Dua Povey says:

    I tend to agree with the comment above from, if he really wanted to help he would have done it in a way to divulge his knowledge not to hide it.

  17. Larry Barry says:

    It is worth remembering that Edison tried in every way to discredit Tesla’s ingenious work, he came to design for the Government the electric chair using alternating current, propagating the idea that this type of current was deadly and harmful. Edison was also razed by the fact that the Niagara Falls power plant had been built with Tesla generators.
