Nikola Tesla and the History of Radio Astronomy

While conducting experiments in Colorado Springs during the summer of 1899, Nikola Tesla invented an unusual and highly-sensitive receiver as a tool to investigate the electrical properties of the earth. The receiver was set up to beep each time it detected subtle changes in voltage in the atmosphere, and soon Tesla was receiving atmospheric static … More Nikola Tesla and the History of Radio Astronomy

NASA’S Juno Mission and Nikola Tesla’s Discovery in Colorado Springs

Today, July 4, NASA scientists will begin listening for a radio signal, letting them know the Juno Probe has begun orbiting around Jupiter. They are studying activity at its poles to find out how the auroras respond to changes in the solar wind.  According to the European Space Agency, Jupiter’s auroras cover areas larger than … More NASA’S Juno Mission and Nikola Tesla’s Discovery in Colorado Springs

The Mystery of Cosmic Rays

  Researchers at NASA have been conducting an experiment with a particle collector mounted on the outside of the International Space Station, in an effort to learn more about cosmic rays, the charged particles that fill the universe. They say that telescopes are an invaluable tool to measure photons, tiny particles of light both visible … More The Mystery of Cosmic Rays

NASA to Study The Tiny, Charged Particles That Make Up The Universe

NASA has announced an upcoming research project to study the electrified gas, or plasma, that fills 99% of the universe. Nikola Tesla discovered these electrified particles in 1897, and called them ‘cosmic rays’. Read full article here Tesla said: I have harnessed the cosmic rays and caused them to operate a motive device. Cosmic ray … More NASA to Study The Tiny, Charged Particles That Make Up The Universe
