Die Geschichte wird von den Siegern geschrieben. Aber dies ist kein Trost für diejenigen, deren Name von der Feder des Verlegers herausgestrichen wurde. Viele Jahre lang haben die wissenschaftlichen Lehrbücher Elektrizität und Licht mit einem einzigen Mann, Thomas Edison, gleichgesetzt, während der Name des Genies, dessen elektrische Techniken die heutige Welt speisen, in einer unbedeutenden Notiz am Rande der Geschichte der Wissenschaft verkümmerte. Vor Beginn des 20. Jahrhunderts war Elektrizität ein rein wissenschaftliches Kuriosum. Nikola Tesla hat dies wohl mehr als jeder Andere geändert. Aber Teslas Nachforschungen über die Elektrizität stellen nur einen kleinen Teil seiner wissenschaftlichen und technischen Errungenschaften dar, die ihm den Titel des Genies einbrachten. Nikola Tesla: Mein Leben, Meine Forschung" besteht aus vier Teilen: eine Einführung zu Teslas Leben, Teslas Autobiografie, einige von Teslas wichtigsten Arbeiten, in einfachen Worten erklärt, und eine hundert Seiten umfassende Sammlung seltener Fotografien, die in mehreren Lebensabschnitten Teslas aufgenommen wurden, von seiner Geburtsurkunde über die erste mit phosphoreszierendem Licht geschossene Fotografie bis hin zum letzten Foto, kurz vor seinem Tod, im Jahre 1943. Ein Band: 362 Seiten.

The Lost Journals of Nikola Tesla

Publisher: Inner Light - Global communications
ISBN: 1892062135
Release Date: 2000
Genre: Conspiracies

Go check your encyclopaedia to find the answers to the following questions: 1) Who invented the radio? 2) Who discovered X-rays? 3) Who invented the vacuum tube amplifier? In fact, while you're at it, check to see who discovered the fluorescent bulb, neon lights, speedometer, the automobile ignition system, and the basics behind radar, electron microscope, and the microwave oven. Despite what most history books say, all of these inventions were conceived and developed by a man named Nikola Tesla, possibly the greatest mind mankind has ever seen. Unfortunately, few people today have ever heard of Tesla and his fantastic inventions. After all, Tesla was considered an eccentric who talked of death rays that could destroy 10,000 aeroplanes at a distance of 250 miles, claimed to be able to split the Earth in two, believed that both voice and image could be transmitted through the air (in the late 1800's), and developed a science that could lead to free energy, antigravity and possibly weather modification. Now for the first time, Nikola Tesla's secret writings have been finally brought together in one fantastic book. Much of these notes have been withheld by the governments of the United States and Russia, for fear that their secret Black Project weapons and exotic science experiments would be discovered. But some notes have managed to slip out along with recent writings on projects based on Tesla science. Death rays -- antigravity aircraft -- free energy -- time travel and teleporatation are just a few of the amazing secrets revealed at last.

The Truth About Tesla

Author: Christopher Cooper
Publisher: Race Point Publishing
ISBN: 9781631065798
Release Date: 2018-10-02
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Everything you think you know about Nikola Tesla is wrong. The Truth About Tesla sets the record straight. Nikola Tesla was one of the greatest electrical inventors who ever lived. For years, the engineering genius was relegated to relative obscurity, his contributions to humanity (we are told) obscured by a number of nineteenth-century inventors and industrialists who took credit for his work or stole his patents outright. In recent years, the historical record has been "corrected" and Tesla has been restored to his rightful place among historical luminaries like Thomas Edison, George Westinghouse, and Gugliemo Marconi. Most biographies repeat the familiar account of Tesla's life, including his invention of alternating current, his falling out with Edison, how he lost billions in patent royalties to Westinghouse, and his fight to prove that Marconi stole 13 of his patents to "invent" radio. But, what really happened? Consider this: Everything you think you know about Nikola Tesla is wrong. Newly uncovered information proves that the popular account of Tesla's life is itself very flawed. In The Truth About Tesla, Christopher Cooper sets out to prove that the conventional story not only oversimplifies history, it denies credit to some of the true inventors behind many of the groundbreaking technologies now attributed to Tesla and perpetuates a misunderstanding about the process of innovation itself. Are you positive that Alexander Graham Bell invented the telephone? Are you sure the Wright Brothers were the first in flight? Think again! With a provocative foreword by Tesla biographer Marc. J. Seifer, The Truth About Tesla is one of the first books to set the record straight, tracing the origin of some of the greatest electrical inventions to a coterie of colorful characters that conventional history has all but forgotten.

The Extraordinary Life Of Nikola Tesla

Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Two myths exist on the late Tesla. Interestingly, one of the myths asserts that Tesla greatest enemy was Thomas Edison. The second mystery of Nikola Tesla is more amazing. The current world talks of his great abilities. A search on the web would provide articles describing Tesla lost inventions, famous discoveries, and a visionary leader. However, during his days, no one acknowledged his unique abilities. Patent disputes occurring between Westinghouse and General Electric have undermined Tesla discovery of present day alternating current. General Electric hired a man to author a book on the Theory and Calculation of Alternating Current Phenomena. Despite thousands of people not reading about the name Tesla, it did not stop his fame. Today people know of his great innovations. Smith Rolf terms the period of starting 1893 as Tesla’s decade.

In den 1920er Jahren erschienen zahlreiche populäre Schriften, die Einsteins Relativitätstheorie widerlegen wollten. Milena Wazeck zeigt, in welchem Maße der Physiker und seine Theorie von Akademikern wie auch von Nichtakademikern als fundamentale Bedrohung wahrgenommen wurden. Diese Bedrohung war so stark, dass sich ein internationales Netzwerk gegen die Relativitätstheorie formierte, dessen Existenz hier anhand neuen Quellenmaterials erstmals belegt wird.

Tesla Inventor of the Modern

Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Tesla’s inventions transformed our world, and his visions have continued to inspire great minds for generations. Nikola Tesla invented the radio, robots, and remote control. His electric induction motors run our appliances and factories, yet he has been largely overlooked by history. In Tesla, Richard Munson presents a comprehensive portrait of this farsighted and underappreciated mastermind. When his first breakthrough—alternating current, the basis of the electric grid—pitted him against Thomas Edison’s direct-current empire, Tesla’s superior technology prevailed. Unfortunately, he had little business sense and could not capitalize on this success. His most advanced ideas went unrecognized for decades: forty years in the case of the radio patent, longer still for his ideas on laser beam technology. Although penniless during his later years, he never stopped imagining. In the early 1900s, he designed plans for cell phones, the Internet, death-ray weapons, and interstellar communications. His ideas have lived on to shape the modern economy. Who was this genius? Drawing on letters, technical notebooks, and other primary sources, Munson pieces together the magnificently bizarre personal life and mental habits of the enigmatic inventor. Born during a lightning storm at midnight, Tesla died alone in a New York City hotel. He was an acute germaphobe who never shook hands and required nine napkins when he sat down to dinner. Strikingly handsome and impeccably dressed, he spoke eight languages and could recite entire books from memory. Yet Tesla’s most famous inventions were not the product of fastidiousness or linear thought but of a mind fueled by both the humanities and sciences: he conceived the induction motor while walking through a park and reciting Goethe’s Faust. Tesla worked tirelessly to offer electric power to the world, to introduce automatons that would reduce life’s drudgery, and to develop machines that might one day abolish war. His story is a reminder that technology can transcend the marketplace and that profit is not the only motivation for invention. This clear, authoritative, and highly readable biography takes account of all phases of Tesla’s remarkable life.
