Did Nikola Tesla actually foresaw nuclear energy as a dangerous technology?

And from the 1980 biography movie ,”Secret of Nikola Tesla”, it portrays Tesla foreseeing nuclear energy as dangerous and destructive. And here in the present we know that with examples of Chernobyl and more recently Fukushima.

In contrast, Tesla ‘s proposed ionospheric energy create no known harm.

Did Tesla really foresaw that? Or was that just a fictitious element the director infused into story?

Since Tesla quite clearly discounted the "new" theories of quantum mechanics and relativity, yes.

indeed. probably one of the many reasons that tesla is so unmentioned compared to einstein--which is totally wrong because tesla was closer to truth on his vision of radiant aether (whereas einstein was wrong and thought aether was static--he later conceded that tesla was correct, as well lol). this stuff is why he def knew about the dangers of nuclear energy

tesla was arguably one of the greatest geniuses this world has ever seen. unfortunately, he is not one of the most well-remembered.

tesla refused to let the Man put him in a box

It's healthy to be skeptical.

i dunno about the whole aether thing, hardly any info of substance on that...

"Let the future tell the truth, and evaluate each one according to his work and accomplishments. The present is theirs; the future, for which I have really worked, is mine."
Nikola Tesla


is this quote a sign he saw into the future? i 'm not in mood for skeptics right now. looking for powerful/meaningful clues worth considering.

well depends on situation. when there is some much evidence and people keep nagging you being sketpic, then that can gets annoying.

Since Tesla, as far as we know, didn't delve into radioactive materials directly himself, we can suspect that he had an avid interest in that field while working in his own field over the decades. Surely, he would have known about the work of the Curies and others and the dangers invoved. Being outspoken, I'll bet he left words to the effect of dangers of such work.

If you recall some of the most shocking (no pun intended) photos of him in his lab sitting among bolts of man-made lightening, then you can accept that safety from the materials scientists work with was within his area of concern.

Oh, I knew you'd make a mess with it.

If you hadn't stolen the rest of my inventions, we'd all have free, clean energy.

I'd say that considering the way that the internet reveres (and mostly misremembers him), your assertion is probably wrong.

actually there is plenty--including his equations. (not to mention his personal diary)

the fact that he knew it was radiant aether means quite a bit--if you know what that means. it means that the aether not only gives off its own light but also moves/reacts. whereas einstein believed it was just a static field.

a reply to: Krazysh0t

idk about them apples. where is he revered on the internet? you mean facebook? lol I was talking about irl, man. so no, my assertion is totally valid.

Tesla I believe wasn't perfect, but clearly a mind before his time, way before.

Aether especially. There are other things mostly or entirely lost to history that he had pioneered....sad.

I'd love to see what happened to that car he made for the world's fair.

After his death, the garage was found opened and car missing.

People mentioning on facebook may not make them aware of what he did (hence why I said his actions are misremembered), but it certainly makes him known. Though, I'd bet that he is more revered in places like reddit anyways.

quote from the secret of nikola tesla(1980) from tesla's character is reference to nuclear energy,
" ...such energy is created by destroying natural elements...this is crime against nature and one day would bring about catastrophe..the worlds at crossraod right now...if we pass uo this chance.....we will forever be held accountable by future generaitons....the ionopshere...we simply put to use what already exist in nautre in unlimited quantities..."



since mere mortals have persumably limited knowledge of ionosphere at this point, is it really unlimited is what i'm interested it now?!



and more importantly, where did this idea come from ? is it purely from director 's own imagiination or from literature/philasophical literature tesla left behind?



well it may be less limited than more persuming governments really have been using haarp to manipulate the weather as weather weapons. lol.

Yes and I think spiritually this was the basis for his drive to create but as usual a group stepped in and changed the coarse of events.
