Nikola Tesla (1856 – 1943)
Many people have never heard of Nikola Tesla, born an ethnic Serb in the village of Smiljan, Vojna Krajina on the 10 July 1856 and passed over on the 7th January1943. Although he was a subject of the Austrian Empire he later became an American citizen and was widely respected as one of the greatest electrical engineers. His inventions were groundbreaking and many seemed too far fetched for the American people he became ostracized as a mad scientist. He was not a man that put much emphasis on money and passed away quite poor at the age of 86. The Tesla was named in his honour (The magnetic flux flux density and the magnetic induction). Whilst more known for his work on electromagnetism and electromechanical engineering Tesla also conceived the induction motor and developed devices that used rotating magnetic fields, X-rays, he contributed to the establishment of computer science, remote control, fluorescent lamps, radar, aeriel transportation, ocean thermal energy conversion, robotics and the inventor of the radio. Tesla also demonstrated the transmission of electrical energy without wires, termed the Tesla effect, where there is a movement of energy through space and matter, not just the production of voltage across a conductor. He believed that one day all men would one day harness the very energy that is free and present throughout space. At one point in his life Tesla was offered 50,000 dollars, (that amount today would be well over a million pounds) to redesign Edison’s motor and generator which was inefficient, after accepting and working all hours to complete the job Tesla also presented Edison with several profitable new patents in the process, after Tesla inquired about his payment which he had not yet received to which Edison scoffed and laughed off. Tesla was being paid $18 a week for all his hard work and soon resigned after refusing a raise of $25. Later in life Tesla became a vegetarian and at the age of 81 he had completed his, ‘dynamic theory of gravity’ and was ready to share it with the world, sadly this was never published. Tesla passed of heart failure in 1943 soon after the US Alien Property Custodian took hold of Tesla’s work and belongings and impounded them. The FBI, the War Office and J Edgar Hoover declared his work top secret, Tesla’s family struggled with these authorities to allow the papers and belongings to return to them and some were but most certainly many were kept by the US government.Tesla’s ashes were placed at the Nikola Tesla Museum in Belgrade where they still reside today..
What a Human Being – May God Bless you Nikola Tesla
The story of the Wardenclyffe Tower
In 1900 with an investment by J Pierpont Morgan Tesla built his Wardenclyffe Tower with 150,000 dollars for experiments in radio. When the tower was nearing completion Morgan asked where do I put the meter? Tesla had no answers, his vision was for free power for all and this did not sit with Morgans worldview! Morgan realised that he could not charge people for this energy he pulled out his investment and stopped anyone else investing in Tesla’s tower. Some say Morgan know that this energy was free and to stop Tesla continuing he invested in him until the tower was almost finished and then pulled out his investment thus this free energy tower could not be used again. An unrecognised hero of the 1900′s who’s later inventions, documented in some 30 U.S. patents between 1890 and 1921, have never been utilized as Tesla intended despite their obvious potential for advancing in fundamental ways the technology of modern civilization. Among his inventions, radio, robotics, peace ray, wireless electricity, the disk-turbine rotary engine, the Tesla coil electric energy magnifier, high-frequency lighting systems, the magnifying transmitter, wireless power, and the free-energy receiver. Many of these inventions are used by the military see HAARP. Interesting to note Morgans son, J P Morgan Jnr. took over the business at his father’s death, yet never sought publicity, but instead helped create and control the Federal Reserve with 11 other banking families, this continues till this day.
Tesla’s invention – Wardenclyffe Tower
In 1882 Nikola Tesla discovered the rotating magnetic field, a fundamental principle in physics and one of the greatest discoveries of all times. In February 1882, Tesla was walking with his friend through a city part in Budapest, Hungary. He was reciting stanzas from Goethe’s Faust, the sun was just setting, when suddenly the elusive solution to the rotating magnetic field, which he had been seeking for a long time, flashed through his mind. At this very moment, he saw clearly in his mind an iron rotor spinning rapidly in a rotating magnetic field, produced by the interaction of two alternating currents out of step with each other. One of the ten greatest discoveries of all times was born at this glorious moment. Tesla was gifted with the intense power of visualization and exceptional memory from early youth on. He was able to fully construct, develop and perfect his inventions completely in his mind before committing them to paper. From his memory he constructed the first induction motor. In the summer of 1883, Tesla was working in Strasburg, France, where he built his first actual induction motor model and saw it run. Tesla’s AC induction motor is widely used throughout the world in industry and household appliances. It started the Industrial Revolution at the turn of the century. Tesla’s electromagnetic motor is based on the principle of rotating magnetic field. In 1975, Nikola Tesla was inducted into the National Inventor’s Hall of Fame in the United States for the discovery of the electromagnetic motor. Nikola Tesla was born exactly at the stroke of midnight between July 9 and 10, 1856 — an incidental schism that befits the beginnings of a man who always seemed out of time with the world around him. He was a Serbian-American inventor and researcher who discovered the rotating magnetic field, the basis of most alternating-current machinery. He invented the Tesla coil, an induction coil widely used in radio technology. His other inventions are: a telephone repeater, rotating magnetic field principle, polyphase alternating-current system, induction motor, alternating-current power transmission, Tesla coil transformer, wireless communication, radio, fluorescent lights, and more than 700 other patents. Nikola Tesla died on January 7th, 1943, at the age of 87 in Hotel New Yorker, in Manhattan, in room 3327 on the 33rd floor of the hotel. He was virtually penniless, living at the dilapidated Hotel New Yorker in a room that he shared with a flock of pigeons, which he considered his only friends. Immediately after Tesla’s death, Tesla’s scientific papers vanished from his hotel room in Hotel New Yorker. Tesla’s papers were never found. SOURCE: http://www.chem.ch.huji.ac.il/history/tesla.htm
