Nikola Tesla Part 01 of 01 pages(1-249) The FBI’s Reading Room contains many files of public interest and historical value. In compliance with the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA) requirements, some of these records are no longer in the physical possession of the FBI, eliminating the FBI’s capability to re-review and/or re-process this material. Please note, that the information found in these files may no longer reflect the current beliefs, positions, opinions, or policies currently held by the FBI. Why Nikola Tesla was the greatest geek who ever lived Additional notes from the author: If you want to learn more about Tesla, I highly recommend reading Tesla: Man Out of Time Also, this Badass of the week by Ben Thompson is what originally inspired me to write a comic about Tesla. Ben's also got a book out which is packed full of awesome. There's an old movie from the 80s on Netflix Instant Queue right now about Tesla: The Secret of Nikola Tesla. It's corny and full of bad acting, but it paints a fairly accurate depiction of his life.

Tesla Technology: 5 Bladeless Turbines About to Revolutionize Energy Production “Every home in America can run on wind energy. In fact these units can be installed on existing power poles in rural areas, to catch the wind and send its energy back to the plant.”- Raymond Green, Inventor In 1913, Inventor Nikola Tesla patented a bladeless steam turbine that he claimed was the most efficient and the most simple rotary engine ever designed. Due to a lack of high-quality materials, Tesla was never able to properly build his engine. One century later, we now have all the materials needed to build Tesla’s turbine, and in 2010, a patent was issued to a company called Solar Aero for a wind turbine based on the Tesla design. Their turbine will be presented in this article along with other bladeless turbines like it that will allow us to revolutionize energy production for the entire world.

The first female physician, and the thousand-year campaign against her OK, so what you're saying is that we shouldn't mention historical figures that overcame discrimination as females as though that might be interesting to someone, but if the historical figure is male, please feel free to discuss his gender at length. What you don't understand is that we are not required to pretend that discrimination against women isn't a historical thing just because you personally want to cover that up. Erm, No. That's not what I'm saying at all. I was saying 'Oy' to the fact that people tried to cover up the fact that she was a woman, and the other points in the article that referred to how people assumed that her husband/son were doctors and/or wrote the books instead of Trotula. The freak out mea culpa bit at the end referred to the point at the beginning of the article where the writer mentioned that Trotula may have been mythical, in which case my 'Oy'ing at gender discrimination becomes a bit irrelevant as a comment for this article.

Recovered The Ten Inventions of Nikola Tesla Which Changed The W Nikola Tesla-Did You Know? “Tesla was considered an eccentric man who talked of death rays that could destroy 10,000 airplanes at a distance of 250 miles. However, Tesla devised the AC (alternating current) system that we use in our homes today. Serbian president unveils Nikola Tesla monument in New York The president of Serbia unveiled a monument to Nikola Tesla in New York state on Monday, marking the latest milestone in a long-running campaign to raise the profile of the cult scientist and inventor around the world. Tomislav Nikolic told the crowd at Tesla's former Wardenclyffe laboratory in Long Island that the scientist was a man whose "ideas were larger than his time", in a ceremony that also served as an opportunity for the Serbian president to remind the world of Tesla's nationality. "The strength of Tesla's vision – because you can't forget he died more than 70 years ago – is what influences how the public speaks about Nikola Tesla: with respect," Nikolic told the Guardian, following a ceremony attended by several members of the Serbian cabinet and a large number of Serbian diaspora. "In turn, the public will also speak about Serbia with respect." The pair's relationship soon soured, however, eventually becoming a bitter rivalry.

Nikola Tesla: Calling All Freethinkers, Part Three By Rand Clifford, Intellihub.com One thing seeming most reliable for seekers of truth about Nikola Tesla: 90% of available information is disinformation, or misinformation. What’s more, Tesla’s greatest triumph is not only forbidden information, fully reproducing Aether capture Tesla style can be a PSQ capitol offense. [1] Tesla could annihilate the stranglehold thrown on humanity by the Power Status Quo (PSQ). He showed humanity how to transcend the PSQ’s paradigm of destructive energy; the PSQ has responded for over a century the only way they know how, more destruction. Regarding the 90% figure: In 1983, fifty corporations owned 90% of Corporate Mainstream Media (CMM), controlling 90% of virtually every commercial thing Americans watched, heard, or read.

John von Neumann John von Neumann (/vɒn ˈnɔɪmən/; December 28, 1903 – February 8, 1957) was a Hungarian and later American pure and applied mathematician, physicist, inventor, polymath, and polyglot. He made major contributions to a number of fields,[2] including mathematics (foundations of mathematics, functional analysis, ergodic theory, geometry, topology, and numerical analysis), physics (quantum mechanics, hydrodynamics, and fluid dynamics), economics (game theory), computing (Von Neumann architecture, linear programming, self-replicating machines, stochastic computing), and statistics.[3] He was a pioneer of the application of operator theory to quantum mechanics, in the development of functional analysis, a principal member of the Manhattan Project and the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton (as one of the few originally appointed), and a key figure in the development of game theory[2][4] and the concepts of cellular automata,[2] the universal constructor, and the digital computer. . and

Nikola Tesla's Engineering Legacy From Feed Line No. 8a It was around the turn of the century, January 22, 1900, when Nikola Tesla sent his business associate George Westinghouse, Jr. some fascinating news. He wrote confidentially:
