    Post Tesla's 'Death Ray'

    Tesla's 'Death Ray' In
    1940 NY Times
    From Frank Warren



    'Death Ray' For Planes
    The New York Times
    September 22, 1940

    Nikola Tesla, one of the truly great inventors who celebrated his eighty-fourth birthday on July, 10 tells the writer that he stands ready to divulge to the United States government the secret of his "teleforce," of which he said," airplane motors would be melted at a distance of 250 miles, so that an invisible 'Chinese Wall of Defense' would be built around the country against any enemy attack by an enemy air force, no matter how large.

    This "teleforce" is based on an entirely new principle of physics, that "no one has ever dreamed about," different from the principles embodied in the in his inventions relating to the transmission of electrical power from a distance, for which he has received a number of basic patents. This new type of force Mr. Tesla said, would operate through a beam one- hundred-millionth of a square centimeter in diameter, and could be generated from special plant that would cost no more then $2,000,000 and would take only about three months to construct.

    A dozen such plants, located at strategic points along the coast, according to Mr. Tesla, would be enough to defend the country against all aerial attack. The beam would melt any engine, whether diesel or gasoline driven, and would also ignite the explosives aboard any bomber. No possible defense against it could be devised, he asserts, as the beam would be all-penetrating.


    High Vacuum Eliminated


    The beam, he states, involves four new inventions, two of which already have been tested. One of these is a method and apparatus < section not legible eliminating the need for a "high vacuum;" a second is a process for producing "very great electrical force;" third is a method of amplifying this force, and the fourth is a new method for producing "a tremendous repelling electrical force." This would be the projector, or the gun of the system. The voltage for propelling the beam to its objective, according to the inventor, will attain a potential of 80,000,000 volts.

    With this enormous voltage, he said, microscopic electrical particles of matter will be catapulted on their mission of defensive destruction. He has been working on this invention, he added, for many years and has made a number of improvements on it.

    Mr. Tesla makes one important stipulation. Should the government decide to take up his offer, he would go to work on it at once, but they would have to trust him. He would suffer "no interference from experts."

    In ordinary times such a condition would very likely interpose an insuperable obstacle. But times being what they are, and with the nation getting ready to spend billions on national defense, at the same time taking in consideration the reputation of Mr. Tesla as an inventor who always was many years ahead of his time, the question arises whether it may not be advisable to take Mr. Tesla at his word and commission him to go ahead with his "teleforce" plant.

    Such a Device "Invaluable"


    After all $2,000,000 would be relatively a very small sum compared with what is at stake. If Mr. Tesla really fulfills his promise the results achieved would be truly staggering. Now only would it save billions now planned for air defense, by making the country absolutely impregnable against any air attack, but it also would save many more billions in property that would otherwise be surely destroyed no matter how strong the defenses are as witness current events in England.

    Take, for example, the Panama Canal. No matter how strong the defense, a suicide squadron of dive bombers, according to some experts, might succeed in getting through and cause such damage that would make the Canal unusable, in which our Navy might find it self bottled up.

    Considering the probabilities in the case even if the chances were a 100,000 to 1 against Mr. Tesla the odds would still be largely in favor of taking a chance of spending $2000,000. In the opinion of the writer, who has known Mr. Tesla for many years and can testify he still retains full intellectual vigor, the authorities in charge of building national defense should at once look into the matter. The sum is insignificant compared to the magnitude of the stake.

    I've read a theory that the famous Siberian Tunguska meteorite in 1908 was in fact one of Tesla's experiments. Don't know how credible this theory is however.

    Hmm.........


    "On April 13, 1927, Kulik stood on the edge of the Makirta River and looked out across the land at the immense devastation. "The results of even a cursory examination exceeded all the tales of the eyewitnesses and my wildest expectations," he wrote.

    Kulik discovered an oval more than 40 miles wide where the forest had been flattened (above-right). Trees were uprooted, burned and laid with their tops pointing out from the heart of the affected region. At the center Kulik expected to find a large crater where the meteorite had hit along with fragments of the meteorite itself. He didn't.

    Instead of finding a crater in the center, Kulik found a very strange forest. Trees here were not pushed over and uprooted. Instead they stood straight up like telephone poles and were stripped of their branches. A careful search of the area also yielded no remnant of any meteorite."

    There was also a rumor that NATO was afraid at first to bomb Serbia because they weren't sure if they had any of Tesla's destructive "inventions".....

    Post Tesla's "Death Ray"

    It is thought by some that the Tesla death ray involved scalar waves. The idea that Tesla caused the great Siberian explosion is pure science fiction. There are no facts supporting it and many indicating a heavenly body of some sort hit earth.

    Besides Tesla, the Germans worked on three types of "death rays" during WW2. One of these was a directed X-ray gun, good to 15,000 ft. but which needed a long "time on target" making it a poor anti-aircraft weapon in WW2. The second line of research involved laser weaponry which was only in the initial stage. The third was something called "Motorstoppmittel" in German, meaning "means to stop engines". This involved a reciever and sender which picked up the electromagnetic signature of a spark plug-based engine, amplified the signal, and broadcast it back to the source. This caused the engine to short circuit, thus stopping it. This research started with Marconi in the 1930s and was demonstracted on Mussolini's wife's car while she was driving in it--he car stopped. The Motorstoppmittel device was on the verge of being opperational as the war ended.

    The Germans also took the entire contents of the Tesla Museum, including all of his patents and unpatented material at the start of the war. Efforts have been made to find some of this hidden technology in reports of the most exotic of Nazi technology.
