Nikola Tesla was the greatest inventor of all time. If you have not heard of him, it's simply because THEY (to whom you pay your energy and gas bills) do NOT want you to know about Tesla's life-long dream to provide the entire Earth with FREE WIRELESS ENERGY!
Tesla invented the spark plug, the first A/C (Alternating-Current) electricity generator, the electric motor, induction motor, the Tesla turbine, fluorescent and neon lights, radio transmission (Tesla coil used in modern TVs and radios), wireless communications, wireless electricity transfer, remote control (boat), robotics, Tesla's oscillator (caused earthquakes in New York), discovered rotating magnetic fields, invented the electric car, vertical take-off aircraft (which appears to resemble an ion-propelled aircraft or modern stealth bombers), the Tesla principle, Tesla's Egg of Columbus, bifilar coil, HAARP (military weather modification), laser beams, X-Rays, particle beam weapons, "death ray" guns, and Reagan's "Star Wars" weapons. All this "advanced" science, although Tesla died before World War II.
Nikola Tesla is the father of the radio and the grandfather of modern wireless electrical transmission technology like our Internet and iPhones. Nikola Tesla registered over 700 patents worldwide. His vision included exploration of teleforce, telegeodynamics, electrogravitics, terrestrial stationary waves, solar energy and the power of the sea. Tesla foresaw interplanetary communications (1-2-3) and satellites. Nikola Tesla also knew Thomas Edison, J.P. Morgan, John Jacob Astor, Nathan Rothschild, Mark Twain, and Albert Einstein.
"All peoples everywhere should have FREE energy sources." [...] "Electric Power is everywhere present in unlimited quantities and can drive the world's machinery without the need for coal, oil or gas."
— Nikola Tesla
Nikola Tesla's Oscillator (Earthquake Machine)
Tesla's electro-mechanical oscillator is a mechanical oscillator conceived of and invented by Nikola Tesla in 1898. It is also referred to as the "Earthquake Machine." The machine which Tesla tested was small, around 7 inches (178 mm) long, and weighing only 1 or 2 pounds; something "you could put in your overcoat pocket".
In 1896, Tesla had been in the United States for 11 years after emigrating from his native Croatia. After a disastrous fire in his former laboratory, he moved to more amenable quarters at 46 & 48 Houston St. in Manhattan. For the past few years, he had pondered the sigificance of waves and resonance, thinking that along with the AC system, there were other untapped sources of power waiting to be exploited. The oscillators he designed and built were originally designed to provide a stable source for the frequencies of alternating current - accurate enough to "set your watch by."
He constructed a simple device consisting of a piston suspended in a cylinder, which bypassed the necessity of a camshaft driven by a rotating power source, such as a gasoline or steam engine. In this way, he hoped to overcome loss of power through friction produced by the old system. This small device also enabled Tesla to try out his experiments in resonance. Every substance has a resonant frequency which is demonstrated by the principle of sympathetic vibration - the most obvious example is the wine glass shattered by an opera singer. If this frequency is matched and amplified, any material may be literally shaken to pieces.
A vibrating assembly with an adjustable frequency was finally perfected, and by 1897, Tesla was causing trouble with it in and near the neighborhood around his loft laboratory. Reporter A.L. Besnson wrote about this device in late 1911 or early 1912 for the Hearst tabloid The World Today. After fastening the resonator "no larger than an alarm clock" to a steel bar (or "link") 2' feet long and 2" inches thick:
He set the vibrator in "tune" with the link. For a long time nothing happened - vibrations of machine and link did not seem to coincide, but at last they did and the great steel began to tremble, increased its trembling until it dialated and contracted like a beating heart - and finally broke. Sledge hammers could not have done it; crowbars could not have done it, but a fusillade of taps, no one of which would have harmed a baby, did it. Tesla was pleased.
How Nikola Tesla's Oscillator Works
Tesla's oscillator is purely mechanical. Steam would be forced into the oscillator, and exit through a series of ports, the net effect of which was to cause the armature to vibrate at high speed, within its casing. The casing was by necessity very strong, as temperatures due to pressure heating in the upper chamber exceeded 200°F degrees, and the pressure reached 400psi. Other versions of the machine were created, designed to produce electrical power, both alternating and direct, (without the need for rectifiers). Another variation used electromagnets to control the frequency of the piston's oscillation.
In 1898, Tesla's New York lab was nearly shaken to pieces with this little device, operated by only 5 pounds of air pressure acting against a special pneumatic piston device. The whole assembly was designed to be powered by steam pressure.
1898 Nikola Tesla's New York Earthquakes
Nikola put his little vibrator in his coat-pocket and went out to hunt a half-erected steel building. Down in the Wall Street district, he found one - ten stories of steel framework without a brick or a stone laid around it. Tesla clamped the vibrator to one of the beams, and fussed with the adjustment until he got it.
Tesla said finally the structure began to creak and weave and the steel-workers came to the ground panic-stricken, believing that there had been an earthquake. Police were called out. Tesla put the vibrator in his pocket and went away. 10 minutes more and he could have laid the building in the street. And, with the same vibrator he could have dropped the Brooklyn Bridge into the East River in less than an hour.
Nikola Tesla established a laboratory at 46 & 48 East Houston Street in New York City. There, at one point while experimenting with mechanical oscillators, he allegedly generated a resonance of several buildings causing complaints to the police. As the speed grew, he hit the resonance frequency of his own building and, belatedly realizing the danger, he was forced to apply a sledge hammer to terminate the experiment, just as the astonished police arrived.
The quiet little vibration experiment produced an earthquake, a real earthquake in which people and buildings and everything in them got a more tremendous shaking than they did in any of the natural earthquakes that have visited the metropolis. In an area of a dozen square city blocks, occupied by hundreds of buildings housing tens of thousands of persons, there was a sudden roaring and shaking, shattering of panes of glass, breaking of steam, gas and water pipes. Pandemonium reigned as small objects danced around rooms, plaster descended from walls and ceilings, and pieces of machinery weighing tons were moved from their bolted anchorages and shifted to awkward spots in factory lofts.
Tesla later revealed that this earthquake, which drew police and ambulances to the region of his laboratory at 48 E. Houston Street in 1898 was the result of a little machine Tesla was experimenting with at that time, which "you could put in your overcoat pocket".
Modern Use & WHO Stole Nikola's Technology
Nikola Tesla claimed the device, properly modified, could be used to map underground deposits of OIL. A vibration sent through the earth returns an "echo signature" using the same principle as sonar. This idea was actually adapted for use by Rockefeller's PETROLEUM INDUSTRY, and is used today in a modified form with devices used to locate objects at archaelogical digs.

The Story of Nikola Tesla
The Bad Guys
Thomas Edison had invented a METER to allow customers to be BILLED for energy proportional to consumption, but this METER only worked with Edison's direct current generators. Tesla improved most of Edison's inventions - but left him after Edison refused to pay Tesla the promised salary for his time.
Baron Rothschild of Tring in the County of Hertford, is a title in the Peerage of the United Kingdom. It was created in 1885 for Sir Nathan Rothschild, 2nd Baronet, a member of the Rothschild banking family.
J. P. Morgan financed Tesla's Wardenclyffe project in hopes of billing everyone in the world for a metered system of voice over wires (telephones) - or possibly billing for metered electricity (as he already was with Thomas Edison)
John Jacob Astor IV (July 13, 1864 – April 15, 1912) was an American millionaire businessman, real estate builder, inventor, writer, a member of the prominent Astor family, and a lieutenant colonel in the Spanish-American War. He died in the sinking of the RMS Titanic. Best know for his Waldorf-Astoria Hotel,
General Electric (GE) and George Westinghouse owned "competing" electrical monopolies - both hindering Nikola Tesla and making money from manufactured scarcity, instead of using Tesla's technology to advance the human race.
The Birth of the World's Greatest Inventor
Born an ethnic Serb in the village of Smiljan, Croatian Military Frontier in Austrian Empire (today's Croatia), Tesla went to school in Karlovac. Nikola finished a four-year college term in the span of three years.
1875: Tesla then studied electrical engineering at the Austrian Polytechnic in Graz, Austria.
1880: Tesla moved to Budapest to work in a telegraph company, the National Telephone Company.
1881: On the opening of the telephone exchange in Budapest, Tesla became the chief electrician to the company, and was later engineer for Budapest's first telephone system.
1884: June 6, Tesla first arrived in the United States, in New York City with little more than just a letter of recommendation from Charles Batchelor, a former employer. In the letter of recommendation to Thomas Edison, Batchelor wrote, "I know two great men and you are one of them; the other is this young man." Edison hired Tesla to work for his Edison Machine Works.
Nikola Tesla Worked For Thomas Edison
1885: Tesla claims he was offered US$50,000 (US$1.1 million in 2007, adjusted for inflation) if he redesigned Edison's inefficient motor and generators, making improvements in both service and economy. When Tesla inquired about the payment for his work, Edison replied, "Tesla, you don't understand our American humor," thus breaking Edison's promise. Nikola took a job doing manual labor for Edison. Earning US$18 per week, Tesla would have had to work for 53 years to earn the amount he was promised. The offer was equal to the initial capital of the company. Tesla immediately resigned when he was refused a raise to US$25 per week.
1886: Tesla formed his own company, Tesla Electric Light & Manufacturing
1887: Tesla constructed the initial brushless alternating current induction motor, which he demonstrated to the American Institute of Electrical Engineers (now IEEE) in 1888.
1888: Tesla developed the principles of his Tesla coil, (used in ALL modern TVs and radios) and began working with George Westinghouse at Westinghouse Electric and Manufacturing Company's Pittsburgh labs.
1888: Tesla began investigating what would later be called X-rays.
1891: Tesla demonstrated "the transmission of electrical energy without wires" now known as the Tesla effect.
"War of the Currents" or "Battle of Currents"
1892: Against General Electric and Edison's proposal, Westinghouse, using Tesla's AC system, won the international Niagara Falls Commission contract. The commission was led by Lord Kelvin and backed by financiers such as J. P. Morgan, Lord Rothschild, and John Jacob Astor IV.
1893: At the World's Fair, the World's Columbian Exposition in Chicago, an international exposition was held which, for the first time, devoted a building to electrical exhibits. It was a historic event as Tesla and George Westinghouse introduced visitors to AC power by using it to illuminate the Exposition. On display were Tesla's fluorescent lamps and single node bulbs.
1893: Work began on the Niagara Falls generation project and electric power at the Falls was generated and transmitted as alternating current. The hydroelectric generators were built by Westinghouse Electric Corporation using Tesla's AC system patent. The nameplates on the generators bore Tesla's name. To appease the interests of General Electric, the contract to construct the transmission lines to Buffalo using the Tesla patents was given to them.
1894: Tesla performed a demonstration of wireless communication through radio.
1895: Tesla continued research in the x-ray field. He performed several experiments prior to Roentgen's discovery (including photographing the bones of his hand; later, he sent these images to Roentgen) but did not make his findings widely known; much of his research was lost in the 5th Avenue laboratory fire of March 1895.
1896: On November 16, electrical power was first sent from Niagara Falls to industries in Buffalo NY, from the hydroelectric generators at the Edward Dean Adams Station.
1897: Thomas Edison and Westinghouse went nearly bankrupt, so Tesla released Westinghouse from contract, providing Westinghouse a break from Tesla's patent royalties.
1898: Tesla demonstrated a radio-controlled boat to the public during an electrical exhibition at Madison Square Garden. Tesla called his boat a "teleautomaton". Radio remote control remained a novelty until the 1960s.
1898: Tesla devised an "electric igniter" or spark plug for Internal combustion gasoline engines. He gained U.S. Patent 609,250, "Electrical Igniter for Gas Engines", on this mechanical ignition system.
1899: Tesla decided to move and began research in Colorado Springs, doing experiments transmitting signals from Pikes Peak to Paris. Tesla proved that the earth was a conductor, and he produced artificial lightning (with discharges consisting of millions of volts, and up to 135 feet long. Tesla discovered that the resonant frequency of the Earth was approximately 8 hertz (Hz). In the 1950s, researchers confirmed that the resonant frequency of the Earth's ionospheric cavity was in this range (later named the Schumann resonance).
1900: Tesla left Colorado Springs on January 7th. His lab was torn down and its contents sold to pay debts. With US$150,000 (51% from J. Pierpont Morgan), Tesla began planning the Wardenclyffe Tower facility.
1902: In June, Tesla's lab operations were moved to Wardenclyffe from Houston Street. The tower was dismantled for scrap during World War I.
1914: Tesla believed that the League of Nations, the failed predecessor of the United Nations (Get the U.S. OUT of the U.N.) was not a remedy for the times and issues.
1916: Nikola Tesla wins the Edison Medal.
1917: After Wardenclyffe, Tesla built the Telefunken Wireless Station in Sayville, Long Island. Some of what he wanted to achieve at Wardenclyffe was accomplished with the Telefunken Wireless. In 1917, the facility was seized and torn down by the Marines, because it was suspected that it could be used by German spies.
1928: Tesla received his last patent for an apparatus for aerial transportation which was the first instance of a Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) aircraft.
On Nikola Tesla's 75th birthday in 1931, TIME magazine put him on its cover.
1931: Tesla released "On Future Motive Power" which covered an ocean thermal energy conversion system.
1943: Nikola Tesla died of "heart failure" alone in room 3327 of the New Yorker Hotel on January 7, 1943.
