Nikola Teslas Teleforce & Telegeodynamics Proposals (Tesla Presents Series, Part 4) (Buy Now)

Nikola Tesla
Leland I. Anderson

In the 1930s the unorthodox inventor Nikola Tesla announced to the world a pair of novel inventions.  The first was \"teleforce,\" a particle-beam projector which Tesla intended to be used as an instrument of national defense. A year later, in 1935, Tesla claimed a method of transmitting mechanical energy with minimal loss over any terrestrial distance, providing a new means of communication and a technique for the location of subterranean mineral deposits. He called this system for mechanical power transmission \"telegeodynamics.\" Here, these two important papers, hidden for more than 60 years, are presented for the first time. The underlying principles behind teleforce and telegeodynamics are fully addressed.  In addition to copies of the original documents, typed on Tesla\'s official stationery, this work also includes two Reader\'s Aid sections providing guidance through the more technical aspects of each paper.  The actual texts are followed by Commentary sections which provide historical background and functional explanations of the two devices.  Significant newspaper articles and headline accounts are provided to document the first mention of these proposals. A large Appendix provides a wealth of related material and background information, followed by a Bibliography section and Index.
