Nikola Tesla is certainly a scientist who deserves an ovation for his contribution to the technology we have today. Even though he went through a psychic breakdown probably caused by the critics of his work, he did provide us an overabundance of discoveries. But did he hold the key for free energy?
Tesla is famous for many powerful inventions including radio transmission and AC power. However, he didn’t manage to succeed in fulfilling one of his main ideas: to supply us with wireless transfer of energy.
The wireless charging has been a very fruitful topic of discussion in the field of technology. Nevertheless, it is still only a feasible product far away from the level Tesla had imagined it.
Some companies have a concept of using wireless charging for cell phones, however, Tesla’s designation had a somewhat another point.
Originally, he wanted to create a wireless network of power for anyone in the world who’d like to use it.
The Serbian-American mastermind originally produced his Tesla Coil in order to examine his plan of building a global wireless power grid.
He received free power and lab capital from the local utility in Colorado Springs on Pikes Peak.
There, he tested his ideas by using artificial electrical curves that were visible for miles. Thus, he managed to prove that with this invention, he could create a wireless electrifying of light bulbs.
His idea drew the attention of the famous American banker J.P Morgan who proposed him to financially back up his spectacular achievement – the Wardenclyffe Tower located in New York.
The Wardenclyffe tower was 187 feet tall high power harmonic oscillator that made fast 300 feet into the ground. Tesla wanted to use this tower as a transmitter of free energy all throughout the world.
At first, the energy did have expenses in order to generate. However, Tesla’s aim was to carry the power without charge by forming a channel between the Earth and the ionosphere.
Not only the project was expensive, but J.P Morgan was also threatened by the possibility of free power. In the rear, he was a capitalist and a giant in the copper industry which is a transmitter of electricity.
