Nikola Tesla and the History of Radio Astronomy

In 1899, while conducting experiments with a sensitive receiver he had invented, Nikola Tesla picked up some unusual signals which he believed were extraterrestrial in origin. Two scientists have now provided solid scientific evidence not only that Nikola Tesla was observing real phenomena – that the signals he was picking up with his receiver were planetary in origin – but that Tesla had made the first successful observations in radio astronomy, more than 30 years before Karl Jansky. … More Nikola Tesla and the History of Radio Astronomy

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
