Above: Transmitting Tesla Tower and Laboratory built in 1901-1905 by
Stanford White, famous architect and Tesla's friend. Located in
Wardenclyffe, Long Island. This was to be the first broadcasting
system in the world. Tesla also wanted to transmit electricity
from this Tower to the whole globe without wires using the Ionosphere.
The source of the transmitted electricity was to be the Niagara Falls
Tesla's discovery of the Rotating
rotating magnetic field is a fundamental principle in physics and one of
the greatest discoveries of all times. In February 1882, Tesla was
walking with a friend through a city park in Budapest, Hungary reciting
stanzas from Goethe's Faust. The sun was just setting.
Suddenly the solution of the rotating magnetic field, 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 an
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.
Goethe's Faust was an inspiration for Nikola Tesla. He knew by
heart the Faust. By reciting the Faust in the park in Budapest, he
discovered the rotating magnetic field which is the heart of his induction
motor and alternating current electricity. It is also a basis for
MRI technology, therefore Tesla's name was honored with the Tesla Unit,
used to measure the capacity of MRI machines.

Nikola Tesla was a New Yorker, who lived and worked in New York City
almost 60 years and died at Hotel New Yorker, in Manhattan, on January
We here at the Tesla Memorial Society of New York want the world to
know of Tesla. Tesla's impact on our civilization is tremendous,
and his memory should be kept alive.
In 1917, Tesla was awarded the Edison Medal, the most
coveted electrical prize in the United States.
Nikola Tesla's name has been honored with an International Unit
of Magnetic Flux Density called "Tesla".
The United States Postal Service honored Tesla with a
commemorative stamp in 1983.
Tesla was inducted into the Inventor's Hall of Fame in
Nikola Tesla Award is one of the most distinguished honors presented
by the Institute of Electrical Engineers. The award has been given
annually since 1976.
The Nikola Tesla Award is presented annually since 1968, at
the Area Power Conference, Duluth, Minnesota. The award is
furnished by Siemens Westinghouse Power Corporation.
The Nikola Tesla Statue is located on Goat Island to honor
the man whose inventions were incorporated into the Niagara Falls Power
Station in 1896. Tesla is known as the inventor of the polyphase
The Nikola Tesla Corner Sign located at the intersection of
40th Street and 6th Avenue in Manhattan, is a constant reminder to all
New Yorkers of the greatness of this genius.
Many of the new technologies in the world today, are based on
Tesla's ideas. Tesla spent 50 years of his life to find a way for
interplanetary communications, especially with Mars. He is the
first scientist in the world to use the Ionosphere for scientific
purposes (The Ionosphere is the upper part the atmosphere under constant
bombardment of solar energy, which breaks down molecules into ions
causing an ionized shield of our atmosphere, very important for radio
Nikola Tesla is a unifying force for the people of the Balkans,
and the people of the previous Austro-Hungary Empire (an area of Europe
devoted to science and progress). Every child in the Balkans knows
The Tesla Memorial Society of New York is proposing that Tesla's
birthday, July 10th, be proclaimed by the United Nations "Nikola Tesla
Day". This day will signify a day of science, cosmos explorations,
and brotherhood among nations and religions around the world.
We are asking all Tesla admirers and all governments around the
world to support the idea of "Nikola Tesla Day".
Tesla = Weber/m²
Nikola Tesla's name has been honored with the
international unit of magnetic flux density called "Tesla". All
magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machines are calibrated with Tesla Unit
(from .2 Tesla to 9 Tesla). MRI machines work on the principle of
a homogeneous magnet field. Nikola Tesla discovered the Rotating
Magnetic Field in Budapest, 1882. The Tesla Unit for magnetism was
established in 1956 in the Rathaus of Munich, Germany by the
International Electrotechnical Commission Committee in Action.
Because of the tremendous importance of the MRI
technology and widespread use of the MRI machines around the world,
which are all calibrated in Tesla Units, Tesla's name connected with the
MRI will be known more and more in the future and the years to come.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is extremely
important for medical diagnosis of internal organs of the human body,
especially the diagnosis of cancer, tumors, degenerative diseases of the
brain and spinal cord. The modern diagnosis of the internal organs of
the human body would be today unthinkable without MRI. MRI
machines are widespread with many variations in size and capacity
all around the world. The revenue of MRI machines sales was 1.46
billion dollars in 2002. Revenue for MRI machine sales is expected
to increase in the following years.
MRI employs a strong homogeneous magnetic field and
specific radio frequency to which many elements, especially hydrogen
nuclei respond with radio frequency signals. These signals are
analyzed by computer reconstruction algorithms. The healthy tissue
and pathological tissue have different radio frequency signals and
produce different images on MRI. Therefore enable us to make
diagnosis of pathological tissues of the body.
MRI has the advantage over CT scan, it uses no
ionizing radiation and does not cause cumulative harm. The only
contraindication of those related to the high magnetic field.
Magnetic-sensitive objects like pacemakers, watched and magnetic tapes

Tesla Motors of 2006 runs on a electric motor with a rack of batteries.
Tesla had a large westinghouse electric motor under the hood.

had an Electric Pierce Arrow back in 1930, the ICE engine was replaced
with an Electric Motor. The power source was a black box of radio
tubes, in the glove compartment. The box had an antenna sticking out.
Tesla would fool with some tuners and tune in the right frequency and
got 240 volts delivered through the air to his car. The car ran almost
silent. He had the car stashed in a barn near Niagara Falls. He was
sending the energy from the Power Plant, some how. He said this power
could be made possible for everyone. J.P. Morgan did not like the idea,
because where do you put the meter? Morgan stopped funding and Tesla's
Wardencliffe Tower was destroyed & taken down. Tesla sent a
particle beam to the stratosphere and down to Siberia. soon after he
leveled an estimated 60 million trees over 2,150 square kilometers,
felling them radial outward from the blast center in Tunguska, Siberia,
Russia in June of 1908. The tower would have made war obsolete. We were
denied this FREE power and NO MOE WAR machine. We were denied the
privilege, instead we get wars over false flag operations with so
called pilot terrorists with no weapons of MD. Now we pay for gas &
get to breath un-natural SMOG from burning dirty hydro-carbons along
with 13 bad to breathe chemicals, know to cause cancer. We could be
driving our cars with water as the gas, and steam in the tail pipes.
Here is the story : In 1930, Nikola Tesla
asked his nephew, Petar Savo, who was born in Yugoslavia in 1899, to
come to New York. Petar was 43 years younger than his uncle. Up to that
date he had lived under stringent conditions in Yugoslavia, Tesla's
country of birth. During the summer of 1931, Tesla took his nephew to
Buffalo to unveil and test a new automobile. Tesla had developed it
with his own personal funds.
was a Pierce Arrow, one of the luxury cars of the period. The engine
had been removed, leaving the clutch, gearbox and transmission to the
rear wheels undisturbed. The gasoline engine had been replaced with a
round, completely enclosed electric motor of approximately 1m in length
and 65cm in diameter, with a cooling fan in front. Reputedly, it has no
distributor. Tesla was not willing to say who had manufactured the
engine. It was possibly one of the divisions of Westinghouse.
"energy receiver" (gravitational energy converter) had been built by
Tesla himself. The dimensions of the converter housing were
approximately 60 x 25 x 15cm. It was installed in front of the
dashboard. Among other things, the converter contained 12 vacuum tubes,
of which three were of the 70-L-7 type. A heavy antenna approximately
1.8 meters long, came out of the converter. This antenna apparently had
the same function as that on the Moray converter (see chapter on
Radiant Energy). Furthermore, two thick rods protruded approximately
10cm from the converter housing.
pushed them in saying "Now we have power." The motor achieved a maximum
of 1800rpm. Tesla said it was fairly hot when operating, and therefore
a cooling fan was required. For the rest, he said there was enough
power in the converter to illuminate an entire house, besides running
the car engine. The car was tested for a week, reaching a top speed of
90 miles per hour effortlessly. Its performance data were at least
comparable to those of an automobile using gasoline. At a stop sign, a
passerby remarked that there were no exhaust gasses coming from the
exhaust pipe. Petar answered "We have no motor." The car was kept on a
farm, perhaps 20 miles outside of Buffalo, not far from Niagara Falls.
few months after this automobile test, and because of the economic
crisis at the time, Pierce Arrow had to stop production. It is very
likely that the interconnection between the electric motor and the
transmission had been performed there. Pierce Arrow's tools were taken
over by Studebaker, in South Bend. Not quite 30 years later, that
company also vanished to form American Motors, jointly with Nash.
Later, some of its fans attempted to resuscitate the Pierce Arrow.
Unfortunately, they were not successful.
today that company's name is in a mausoleum, together with others, such
as Horch, Maybach, Hispano-Suiza, Bugatti and Isotta Fraschini.

dream was to have everyone tap into the FREE energy source that could
be distributed through the air, with power station towers in global
positions. It could power cars, trains and airplanes, boats, buses,
etc. A totally clean safe power source. Makes Nuclear Energy seem down
Tesla was taken out
of the school's textbooks back in the early fifties. Most of us have
never heard of him? He was the greatest inventor who ever lived. Born
on July 10th, 1856 at exactly midnight & lived 87 years, until
1943. This year 2006, they celebrated his 150th B-Day!
He has about 700 patents in his name. He invented the radio, the
telephone, the TV, AC poly phase, 60 cycle electricity, fluorescent
& neon lights, the brush less motor, wireless communications, the
Tesla coil, all coils we use today, transformers and just about
everything at a power plant. Hydro-generators, Laser beams, Particle
Beams, helicopters, robotics and many
more inventions. Also he died a poor man, such a shame for a man who
gave so much and had a heart for mankind with FREE Energy for all to
use. This should show you how screwed up our planet is. Accept Christ
today, so when you die you will be able to sit down and talk with
Nikola as long as you desire. Do you know Jesus? No , ,but I've seen
the movie. LN.
Please go see THE CROSS movie.
A modern distant relative of Tesla wrote me and here is what he had to say about Tesla
Tesla was born in 1856 on July 10th, at exactly midnight. He has near
1200 patents. George Westinghouse, only paid Tesla a portion of the
patent money he owed Tesla because, he and his Westinghouse Co. was
almost bankrupt at one point. He asked Tesla to forgive the rest of the
debt to keep The Westinghouse Co. going. Tesla for his good friend
George Westinghouse - forgave the debt and therefore never got all the
money he was due. This is a testament to Tesla's generosity and his
total disregard for money, even to his own financial well being. Tesla
was not a good business man. Tesla had an uncle who lived to be 140
years old. Tesla could recall every page he ever read from memory -
exactly as written. Tesla intentionally sabotaged the Philadelphia
experiment when he found out the Navy was going to put men on the ship
without further testing. 99%25 of all the things Tesla said he could do
that everyone thought were boastful and crazy were absolutely true and
most of them are just barely beginning to be understood. He thought
Einstein and his Theory of Relativity was wrong - and it is. Einstein
based his theory on the speed of Light. But that is only the speed of
light from our perspective on earth. Einstein forgot to tell the rest
of the Universe that light could only go 186,000 miles per second. In
the rest of our Galaxy and in the Universe Light has a much higher
speed limit. The speed of Light was measured in 1887 by two guys with a
light and two mirrors. No one has re measured it since. They were off a
bit. An old saying goes. "Those who say something can't be done -
should stop bothering those who are doing it!
The sky is NOT the limit.
