The Unrecognized Genius Of Nikola Tesla: How Far Ahead Was He?

by Yannis

A name that is placed next to Einstein, Maxwell, Faraday, Leibnitz, Ohm, Ampere and all the other legendary figures of science. But does he deserve to be there, or does he deserve to be on top of them all?

It was July 10, 1856 that he first saw the light of day at Smiljan (located in contemporary Serbia – modern day Croatia – which, at the time was part of the Austrian Empire) and through his life he has patented over 300 inventions.

Typically he is referred to as an inventor and an electrical/mechanical engineer who studied at Graz University and dropped out. It is curious that the person responsible for the basis of our modern science did not even finish his studies.

What is he responsible for? Let’s begin with alternate current (AC), high voltage transfers and high frequency power, without which we would still be using direct current and voltages up to 30 Volts. Then we go to induction motor, rotating magnetic fields, radio remote control devices and a project that he did not manage to finish, X-rays. Still doubt that he was a genius?

His thoughts and ideas made the other scientists of his era describe him as a “mad scientist”. And yet, people saw fit to name the unit of magnetic measurement after him. And yet, the Americans saw fit to offer him incentives to move to the U.S.A. and continue his work there. And yet, there were people that funded him with a lot of capital so that he would be able to complete his experiments and present his inventions. 300 of them. What a mad scientist!

But it is not his recognized work that is the scope of this article. It is his secret and unrecognized work that we will be discussing about. It is those theories that were regarded as so extravagant that earned him the title and yet, nowadays, they may have been put into effect, and no one acknowledges that they are based on the notions of a mad scientist 100 plus years ago!

Discoveries, experiments and notes that were hidden from the general public and were implemented solely on governmental and military projects with results that could threaten the entire world! What are they? Let’s begin:

 Earth’s resonant frequency

tesla-inventionsIt has been confirmed that all bodies have a resonant frequency.

What is this frequency?

The one at which a specific body oscillates with greater amplitude. It is the frequency that can result to its destruction. Tesla stated that Earth had such a frequency around 1900.

What would the result of such a frequency be on earth?

The same as in Tacoma Narrows Bridge in 1940. The oscillation was so great that the bridge completely collapsed.

Alleged application of Tesla’s Earth’s resonance notion?

According to some scientists (unverified and unproven accounts) in intentional earthquake creation through magnetic induction to the magma chamber.

 Artificial lightning

In as far back as 1899, Tesla produced artificial lightning in Colorado Springs consisting of millions of volts and as long as 135 feet. The thunder of the released energy was heard 15 miles away and people at Cripple Creek, Colorado, observed sparks between their feet and the ground and from water taps when they touched them. Through his high frequency experiments he destroyed a power station generator.

Does this sound like an electrical weapon to you? Could there be one or more hidden somewhere and we will not find out until it is too late?

 Wireless electric current

During his tenure at Colorado Springs, Tesla experimented on atmospheric electricity. He received funding from J. Pierpont Morgan to construct the Wardencluffe Tower for the purpose of achieving wireless communication. In 1903 he stipulated at letters to his sponsor that this tower would be capable, apart from transmitting wireless massages, to transmit wireless electrical power. The experiment was never completed as Morgan interrupted the funding.

When was such a possibility confirmed? With the creation of mobile phones in 1947. It was dubbed as dangerous for humans due to the immense electromagnetic fields that would be formed as a result of the voltage differential required for such a transmission. But still the idea was valid and he was granted a patent for it.

 Dynamic gravitational theory

In 1931 he claimed to have developed a theory that would put an end to Einstein’s theory of relativity. No one else has ever directly disputed this theory. Yet Tesla did. He never managed to put this theory into practice as he died. It is believed that these notes were confiscated by the FBI through the Alien Property laws after his death in 1943, even though Tesla had been awarded the American citizenship.

Unproven and unverified scientific claims place an application of this theory to the ex-Soviet construction of the Cosmosphere (the Russian operational version of the Star Wars defensive system) which includes machinery that supposedly is able to fly and move around taking advantage solely of Earth’s gravitational forces without any assistance from propulsion engines. The science behind this program remains a closely guarded secret, and until it is revealed we will not know if it is true that it took advantage of Tesla’s dynamic gravitational theory.

When was the Cosmosphere put in place? 80 years later than Tesla’s theory.

 Directed energy weapons

nikola-teslaAfter studying a Van de Graaff generator, Tesla stipulated theories about a weapon that he called teleforce”. The contemporary press called it a “death ray”. As per Tesla himself, this would be a particle beam weapon capable of firing against ground and air targets, sending concentrated beams of such energy that could bring down 10,000 aircraft at a distance of 200 miles. 

In 1937 he claimed that he actually constructed and tested such a weapon. This was again not made possible because of his death and any notes or prototypes would have been confiscated by the FBI. A treatise of this weapon is located at the Nikola Tesla Museum in Belgrade.

In 1958 the U.S. Advanced Research Projects Agency worked on such a weapon. It later claimed that even though the weapon was possible, it could not be constructed because the power requirements would be beyond the power generation capabilities. That was in 1958. Are we sure that it is not possible now? Almost a century after Tesla said he created it?

How far his concepts in the future were, is clearly stipulated by Emile Girardeau who assisted in developing France’s first radar system. He said that he did know if Tesla was prophesying or dreaming, but if he was dreaming, he was dreaming correctly.

NTP nuclear rocket engine will take humans to Mars in just three months

Although the romance of the peaceful atom has subsided since the mid-1960s, the idea of ​​using nuclear reactors for “civilian” purposes is still regularly returned. The new nuclear rocket engine (NRM) will deliver a man to Mars much faster than is possible now.

The danger of cosmic radiation is much more serious than the risk of infection from an accident with such an engine. The most dangerous of all the constraining vectors for projects of sending people to other bodies in the solar system is cosmic radiation. Radiation from our star and galactic rays can seriously damage the health of the mission crew. Therefore, when planning flights to Mars, engineers and scientists try to reduce travel time as much as possible.

One promising way to get to the Red Planet in just three months could be a new NTP engine. Its concept was developed and submitted to NASA by Ultra Safe Nuclear Technologies ( USNC-Tech ) from Seattle, USA. The name of the unit is simply deciphered – Nuclear Thermal Propulsion ( NTP ), that is, “thermal nuclear power plant”. The novelty differs from its previously created or invented counterparts in the most secure design.

A key component of USNC’s development is mid – grade uranium fuel “pellets”. They contain 5% to 20% of the highly reactive isotope U- 235 coated with zirconium carbide ceramics. This degree of enrichment lies roughly halfway between the “civilian” nuclear power plants and the military. The proprietary ceramic coating technology makes the tablets incredibly resistant to mechanical damage and extreme temperatures.

The company promises that their fuel elements are significantly superior in these parameters to those currently used at nuclear power plants. As a result, the engine will have a higher specific impulse with a lower degree of uranium enrichment than in earlier versions of NRE. In addition to the flight to Mars, among the goals of the ambitious project are other missions within the solar system. The perspectives of the concept will soon be considered by specialists from NASA and the US Department of Defense ( DoD ). Perhaps departments will even allow its commercial use by private companies.

Theoretically, NRE based on modern technologies can have a specific impulse (SR) seven times higher than that of chemical jet engines. And this is one of the key performance parameters. At the same time, unlike electric and plasma ones, the ID of a nuclear rocket engine is combined with high thrust. One of the limiting factors in the use of NRE, in addition to safety issues, are extremely high temperatures in the reactor core.

The higher the temperature of the gases flowing out of the engine, the more energy they have. And accordingly, they create traction. However, mankind has not yet come up with relatively inexpensive and safe materials that can withstand more than three thousand degrees Celsius without destruction. The solution created by USNC will operate at the limit of modern materials science (3000 ° C) and have a specific impulse twice that of the best liquid-propellant engines.

The official press release does not specify which working body will be used in NTP . Usually, in all NRE projects, the reactor core heats hydrogen, less often ammonia. But, since we are talking about a long-term mission, the creators could have chosen some other gas. Keeping liquid hydrogen on board for three months is no easy task. But you still need to invent something for the way back.

Scientist Peter Scott-Morgan is set to become “the world’s first complete cyborg”

Scientist and roboticist Peter Scott Morgan, who is using an advanced version of Stephen Hawking's communication system, built by Intel. INTEL

Two years ago scientist Peter Scott-Morgan was diagnosed with motor neuron disease, also known as Lou Gehrig’s disease, and today he is still fighting for a new life, not just for survival.

This October, Dr. Scott-Morgan is on track to become the world’s first full-fledged cyborg, potentially giving him more years of life.

The world’s first complete cyborg

It was in 2017 that Dr. Peter Scott-Morgan (a brilliant robotics writer, scientific writer, and talented speaker) was diagnosed with degenerative motor neuron disease that ultimately paralyzed his entire body except his eyes.

The diagnosis is understandably grim, especially considering that he has only two years to live, but he has not given up the fight.

Teaming up with world-class organizations with expertise in artificial intelligence, Dr. Scott-Morgan is transforming himself into what he calls “the world’s first fully fledged cyborg.”

“And when I say ‘Cyborg’, I mean not just that some kind of payment will be implanted in me, I mean that I will become the most advanced human cybernetic organism ever created on Earth for 13.8 billion years. My body and brain will be irreversibly changed, ”says Dr. Scott-Morgan.

What does it mean to be human

According to Dr. Scott-Morgan, he will become part robot and part living organism. Moreover, the change will not be one-time, but with subsequent updates.

“I have more updates in the process than Microsoft ,” says Dr. Scott-Morgan.

AI-powered creative expression

The cyborg artist is a great example of the power of human-AI collaboration. AI uses the data that make up Peter’s digital portrait ( articles, videos, images, and social media ) and is trained to recognize key ideas, experiences, and images.

Peter will introduce a theme, AI will suggest composition, and Peter will apply images to suggest style and mood. Peter will direct the AI ​​to render a new digital image that none of them could create alone.

A unique blend of AI and human, reflects Peter’s creative and emotional self – a critical aspect of what it means to be human.

Peter 2.0

This October, Dr. Scott-Morgan will undergo what he calls the latest procedure that will transform him into “Complete Cyborg”.

October 9 he tweeted a photo of himself, writing the following:

“This is my last post as Peter 1.0. Tomorrow I will trade my vote for potentially decades of life as we complete the last medical procedure for my transition to Full Cyborg, in the month that I was told statistically I would be dead. I am not dying, I am transforming. ! Oh, how I LOVE science !!! “.

Japan has developed an inflatable scooter that weighs practically nothing

The University of Tokyo engineers have developed the Poimo inflatable electric scooter, which is created individually for each owner. It is enough to send your photo to the manufacturers – and a personal optimized model will be assembled for you.

The scooter is designed with a special program for the body size of a particular user and his specific fit. Moreover, each owner is free to make any changes to this model. If he makes any changes to the drawing, the program will automatically redesign the electric bike to maintain its strength, stability and controllability. When the model is finished and approved, it is handed over to the manufacturer.

Scooter Poimo

The scooter consists of seven separate inflatable sections that are constructed from durable fabric and sewn with straight stitch. It remains to add electronic components – in particular, a brushless motor and a lithium-ion battery. 

The finished electric scooter weighs about 9 kg and can travel at speeds up to 6 km / h (that is, slightly faster than a pedestrian). It can work for an hour on one charge.

This is how the current version of Poimo looks like in action:
