Why Don't You Try This?: The 10 Inventions of Nikola Tesla That Changed The World

Why Don't You Try This?: The 10 Inventions of Nikola Tesla That Changed The World
Note: This article was first posted some time ago, but in honor of Nikola Tesla's birthday, we thought it would be valuable to repost for new readers. Please feel free to add your own information, article links, or video links about Tesla and his work in the comment section below. I would also point you to Rand Clifford's 3-part series: Nikola Tesla: Calling All Freethinkers! which has a wealth of different information than what you will read below. Also, Dave Hodges' new article: Harnessing Quantum Entanglement Is Humanity’s Secret Weapon highlights the importance of the cover-up that has kept Tesla's true genius from the world for far too long. Ere many generations pass, our machinery will be driven by a power obtainable at any point of the universe. Nikola Tesla is finally beginning to attract real attention and encourage serious debate nearly 70 years after his death. But, let's take a look at what Nikola Tesla -- a man who died broke and alone -- has actually given to the world. 1.

System of Transmission of Electrical Energy SPECIFICATION forming part of Letters Patent No. 645,576, dated March 20, 1900. Application filed September 2, 1897. Serial No. 650,343. 9 Overlooked Technologies That Could Transform The World What I've noticed is that most people don't really pay attention to "science" news, unless it's something that they can see immediately. I think this is at least partially because of the amount of news that comes out daily - whatever we may think about the quality of news, there is just a flood of it, which makes picking out "interesting" items difficult. When I talk about (just for example) the idea of gene therapy, most people think that it is still complete science fiction, as opposed to a very near-term product that will be available. Of course, CSP has been around for years, so it isn't really "new" to the average person.

The Secret Life of Nikola Tesla « Revolutionizing Awareness Posted by Admin on June 16, 2010 by Nikola Tesla Suppose some one should discover a new mechanical principle–something as fundamental as James Watt’s discovery of the expansive power of steam—by the use of which it became possible to build a motor that would give ten horse power for every pound of the engine’s weight, a motor so simple that the veriest novice in mechanics could construct it and so elemental that it could not possibly get out of repair. Then suppose that this motor could be run forward or backward at will, that it could be used as either an engine or a pump, that it cost almost nothing to build as compared with any other known form of engine, that it utilized a larger percentage of the available power than any existing machine, and, finally, that it would operate with gas, steam, compressed air or water, any one of them, as its driving power. It does not take a mechanical expert to imagine the limitless possibilities of such an engine.

7 Scientific Reasons a Zombie Outbreak Would Fail (Quickly) They Can't Take the Heat It's generally accepted by zombie experts that they're going to continue to rot, even as they shamble around the streets. What the movies fail to convey, however, is the gruesome yet strangely hilarious effect the hot sun has on a rotting corpse. The first concern is putrefaction. Thanks to the plethora of bacteria we use in our colon for digesting plant matter, called gut flora, our bodies are ripe for decay the second our heart stops.

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. AC offered great advantages over the rival DC system. By using Tesla’s transformers, AC voltages could be stepped up (or down) and transmitted over long distances through thin wires. 7 of the Weirdest Human Enigmas MOST KIDS love reading the color funny papers on Sundays. As a kid, one of my favorite strips was "Ripley's Believe It or Not." It always featured some fantastic facts or coincidences. Often it would tell of people with unusual abilities, characteristics, or circumstances: a man with a birthmark in the shape of a perfect heart on his chest; a woman whose head was shaped like a Ming vase; twins with six ears between them. Stuff like that.

Tesla Coils: Unleash the Aether Nikola Tesla's most significant contribution was not AC power, radio, or the induction motor, but what we call the Tesla Coil - a tool which allows for the power of the aether to be unleashed and harnessed. Now being launched through an open source project. by Hank MillsPure Energy Systems News The inventions of Nikola Tesla are numerous. He invented radio, teleautomatics (remote control technology), poly-phase alternating current, the induction motor, and many other innovations that established the foundation for our modern civilization.

7 Lost Bodies of Work (That Would Have Changed Everything) The Rest of the Canterbury Tales Chaucer's Canterbury Tales is one of--if not the--seminal work of English literature, written by an author second only to William Shakespeare in influence on the English language (particularly when it came to fart jokes). Just about everything written by the man changed the English-speaking world forever. He basically raised the English language from its reputation as the barbarian dialect of mud-shoveling peasants to the lofty level of Latin or Italian in literature, poetry, witticism, satire and all manner of subjects concerning asses and the gasses that come from asses. So What Happened? Chaucer's Canterbury Tales was expected to clock in at anywhere between 100 and 120 chapters.
