Nikola Tesla Hidden Secrets. For the mighty electromagnetic experiments of Nikola Tesla, in 1908, funding had run out for the last time. The engineering genius would receive no more handouts from banking magnate JP Morgan. In today's dollars, Tesla was now half a million in debt, and to attract new investors, he first would need to capture the attention of the public. The desperate inventor needed to give the first demonstration... of his power to destroy.
Wardenclyffe was the massive tower proposed by Nikola Tesla, to generate ungodly levels of electrical energy... and to transmit this power, without wires, through the air. The North American power grid, is limited to the transfer, of one million kilowatts by wire. Wardenclyffe was designed to release a charge a thousand times as large, measured in terawatts. When projected, the energy of this discharge, would be equal in force to a nuclear strike.
Robber baron JP Morgan, in exchange for fifty-one percent ownership of the project, bankrolled the construction of Wardenclyffe Tower. Almost immediately thereafter, Morgan found himself mired, in the stock market panic of 1901. He was also the one who started the panic. It was Tesla's bad luck, several years later, that he came begging for more money, during the Bankers' Crisis of 1907. He was told by Morgan, there was none to be had. Morgan would pass away before the Roaring Twenties, and his net worth became the source of much gossip. John D. Rockefeller then told the press, that Morgan had never been a wealthy man.
New investors were needed. In Italy, the inventor Marconi had succeeded in using radio, to become the first man on Earth to transmit wireless messages. This innovation was originally promised by Tesla. The American press then turned on Tesla, accusing him of fraud. He needed to stage an event, that would make headlines around the world. He would unleash the full potential of Wardenclyffe Tower, creating at long range an explosion, with the power of a hydrogen warhead. This was more than thirty years before the development of atomic weapons.
Naturally the test site would need to be uninhabited. Tesla dispatched an operative to Washington DC, three months before the explosion, where at the Library of Congress, his agent acquired aerial photographs of the North Pole. A record of this request, is still on file at the library. The photos confirmed that no one lived within a hundred miles of the pole.
Explorer Robert Peary was also in the newspapers. He was about to leave New York, bound for the Arctic, where his destiny was to share the honor, of being the first man to reach the North Pole. But he would not make this trip in a single run. He intended to wait until winter's end on Ellesmere Island, until the following year of 1909. Before Peary steamed up the East River, Tesla contacted him, asking him to report back his observations, of any unusual atmospheric phenomena. The Arctic explorer promised he would.
On June Thirtieth, 1908, Nikola Tesla directed the power of Wardenclyffe, in the direction of the northern pole. However in his desperation, a slight error was made in his calculations. Instead of terminating in the Arctic circle, the electromagnetic strike continued, over the top of the world, to burst above the Russian forest of Tunguska. Tunguska was in line, with the trajectory of the weapon, over the pole.
The closest Russian observers to the Tunguska explosion, at a distance of fifteen kilometers, was a camp of nomads, who were herders of reindeer. Survivors reported, their communal tent was lifted into the air, along with all its occupants. In the distance was seen a channel of bright light, descending from the heavens, with uncanny resemblance to the beam of a laser.
