Nikola Tesla--The Man ,The Machine Part 2

In Part 2 lets take a closer look at some of Nikola Tesla’s inventions… atleast the ones we know about considering that scientists ,even today , are struggling to decipher the maestro’s writings. The true inventor of radio, fluorescent light, and the man who gave the world the electric grid, Nikola Tesla is hardly remembered because he kept selling his patents to Westinghouse, Edison and J.P. Morgan to raise money for his research on wireless power, the aether and gravity control. Whether he ever actually built and flew a craft capable of gravity control is conjecture.

He built the world's largest Tesla coil and used the entire earth as a conductor and he said if he could put a wire around the entire planet Earth he could make it move like a giant space ship. Gravity control on a large scale would allow us to skirt incoming planet killer asteroids Tesla never got credit for first inventing radio until it was proven that his patents pre-dated Marconi's.

A man who convinced Edison that DC wouldn't travel and AC electricity was the answer. And the man who built the world's first power station at Niagara Falls which when fired up launched the grid, electricity on a wire. It was Nikola Tesla who now allows us heat, light and power from a central grid. Strangely, the name, Nikola Tesla, does not appear in any country’s education system. The schoolbooks all read Edison.

Tesla had a dream of providing free energy to the world. In 1900, backed by $150,000 from financier J.P. Morgan, Tesla began testing of his so called "Wireless Broadcasting System" tower on Long Island, New York. This broadcasting tower was intended to link the world's telephone and telegraph services, as well as transmit pictures, stock reports, and weather information worldwide.

Unfortunately, Morgan cut funding when he realized that it meant FREE energy for the world.

Tesla wanted to provide the world with free energy, but the wealthy bankers of his day refused to support him. Why give away energy when you can charge people for it? Well, this was the thinking of the bankers, and it appears they got their way.

Nikola Tesla in 1932 converted a Pierce Arrow from combustion to electric. With the car prepped to run electrically, Tesla visited a nearby hardware store and with items off the shelf, built a unit in his hotel room the night before the test that reportedly captured power from the aether and converted it to electricity. The gizmo sat next to Tesla on the passenger seat of the car. He inserted two rods into the unit and declared, "Now we have power". After running the car on this mysterious source of power for four hundred miles he said he could continue until the car wore out and fell apart. In other words, the power derived from the aether was limitless, and free. There is some conjecture that the power didn't come from the aether but instead from one of Tesla's magnifying transmitters delivering wireless power. That car and it's aether generator have disappeared. This story helps form the "Tesla Church", those who have formed an unswirving belief in everything Tesla. Update: the car has been found but no aether generator

The Tesla flying machine was called the Telautomaton. No propellor, no jet, not saucer shaped, more like a torpedo.

These three Tesla stories are what fascinate people interested in Tesla today. They may be myths only because the man never got funding.You would think his reputation for lighting the world would have carried over to allow what was regarded as fantasies and decisions of a man who had proved his worth. The world will never know nor benefit if there were a hidden truth to Tesla's wild side. Wireless power for everyone, antigravity machines and a powerful death ray. Three Tesla inventions that never got done due to lack of confidence and finance and an attitude that Tesla was now a mad scientist, depicted as such in cartoons of the time.

Why was Tesla never given his due? They say, when Tesla died penniless in a hotel with unpaid bills, his scientific papers were seized. Nikola Tesla's death in 1943 meant that all of his work would now go underground. And his name would be expunged from history. But not completely.

What remains of the man is the fact that we have power. Also the Tesla coil. Radio, fluorescent lighting, brushless turbines and a host of other new ideas. Many today use the term tesla coil and don't know that the name is its inventor. The power of a magnet is measured in 'TESLAS'. This man of the century has for the most part been written out of science and education today.

The scientists of today think deeply instead of clearly. One must be sane to think clearly, but one can think deeply and be quite insane.--Nikola Tesla
