  • The Tesla - Tunguska connection.

    I watched a documentary about an interesting fellow ( bloke as some say in the UK ) which is known by the name of Tesla (no, not the car, the person)....

    They were taking about facts and theories of a connection between the massive explosion in Tunguska and Tesla's work....

    Never heard of it.... but the program was quite entertaining....

    So, what is your opinion, is there a connection or was Tunguska a different event caused by a meteorite?

    Strange theory.
    My rather small knowledge about electromagnetic waves is that they normally tend to travel straight instead of bending around the earth.

      Well, Tesla was sure a colourful character, but an asteroid entering earth's atmosphere and annihilating over Tunguska will do for me.

      ...but crikey pakarang, that is one claptrap conspiracy theory website you're quoting there. Please, please not their "The Beatles Were Titaniced in 1966!" next…

      I had better get back to the Serenissima trip report to give you something else to look at

          Tesla for a while worked with the great George Westinghouse (the founder of part of the company I have worked for for nearly 30 years). They spent a huge amount of effort developing systems based on alternating current rather than direct current - much to Thomas Edison's displeasure. They were all patent mad, and would happily take each other to court at the slightest opportunity.

          Edison doesn't come across as a particularly charming chap though. As Tesla and Westinghouse sought to demonstrate the advantages - both in terms of safety and transmission - of ac, Edison decided to kill a wide assortment of wildlife (and not so wildlife) with ac as the basis of negative publicity. He even developed the electric chair and coined the verb 'to Westinghouse', meaning to kill by electrocution.

          Westinghouse was a decent chap though, a real philanthropist, and so by association I've always considered Tesla to be in the same camp. Reading more about him tonight, he seemed more of a 'mad professor' (no offence to any professors reading this!) than someone setting out to save the world though.



          I have no comment on Tunguska though!
          Cheers,

          Mark.
