Tesla, an example to follow.
Tesla, an example to follow.
Tesla was the real genius. Edison was a dick.
Tesla's research is both valid and fascinating.
Tesla is rumored to discovered a terrible weapon just fitted for sci-fi. A directed energy weapon which can through the power of thousands of lightning to destroy a city.
"Another radical notion he proposed was to heat up portions of the upper atmosphere to light the sky at night 窶" a man-made aurora borealis." H.A.A.R.P., anyone?
One of my favorite people ever.
tesla was greater than edison in my book (story with AC vs DC), had he been given the financing he would have revolutionized the entire science. I even heard he had plans and theories for wireless electricity...and this was the early 20th century!!
I don't understand though, why people keep putting reviews of pages that are nothing more than the entire block of text of the page copied and pasted... pointless?
Life and times of Tesla
Tesla was one of the most brilliant minds, on a par with Edison.
Tesla rocks...that is all
Wow really awesome.. i just have a thing for facts.
From the page:
Tesla inherited from his father a deep hatred of war. Throughout his life, he sought a technological way to end warfare. He thought that war could be converted into, "a mere spectacle of machines."
In 1931 Tesla announced to reporters at a press conference that he was on the verge of discovering an entirely new source of energy. Asked to explain the nature of the power, he replied, "The idea first came upon me as a tremendous shock... I can only say at this time that it will come from an entirely new and unsuspected source."
War clouds were again darkening Europe. On 11 July 1934 the headline on the front page of the New York Times read, "TESLA, AT 78, BARES NEW 'DEATH BEAM.'" The article reported that the new invention "will send concentrated beams of particles through the free air, of such tremendous energy that they will bring down a fleet of 10,000 enemy airplanes at a distance of 250 miles..." Tesla stated that the death beam would make war impossible by offering every country an "invisible Chinese wall."
Whether Tesla's idea was ever taken seriously is still a mater of conjecture. Most experts today consider his idea infeasible. Though, his death beam bears an uncanny resemblance to the charged-particle beam weapon developed by both the United States and the Soviet Union during the cold war.
Nonetheless, Tesla's dream for a technological means to end war seems as impossible now as it did when he proposed the idea in the 1930s.
In my virgin stumble, Tesla, whom I've never heard of came up. It is awesome to learn about people thinking way ahead of their time, then and now. Just the realization that there are and have been such thinkers in the world gives me hope for mankind. When the right ideas come, will we listen?
Tesla was a great mind, tad on the odd side but still
a great mind... to bad he ended up the way he did.....
let's hear it for the man who gave us those totally rocking coils
