Ok, Tesla's beam weapon sciences interest me...
Does anyone have thoughts or opinions on whether he was in some way responsible for the Tunguska incident in Siberia?
A brief synopsis of it goes like this:
On the evening of June 30 1908, accompanied by his associate George Scherff atop Wardenclyffe tower, Tesla aimed what he designed to be a new method
of message sending by means of what we would today think of as a particle accelerator... across the Atlantic towards the arctic, to a spot which he
calculated was near the Peary expedition which was on the way to the North Pole. This was in order to send Peary a message - much in the same
tradition as Alexander Graham Bell's "Mr. Watson, come here!"
Tesla switched on the device. At first, it was hard to tell if it was even working. It is stated in books that the extremity emitted a dim light that
was barely visible. Then an owl flew from its perch on the tower's pinnacle, tumbling into the path of the beam. The bird disintegrated instantly.
That concluded the test. Tesla watched the newspapers and sent telegrams to Peary's contact points in hopes of confirming the devices effectiveness
as a messaging medium. Nothing turned up. Tesla was ready to admit failure when news came of a strange event in Siberia.
On June 30, a massive explosion had devastated Tunguska, a remote area in the Siberian wilderness. Five hundred thousand square acres of densly
forested land had been instantly flattened. Equivalent to ten to fifteen megatons of TNT, the Tunguska incident is the most powerful explosion to have
occurred in human history -- not even subsequent thermonuclear detonations have surpassed it. The explosion was audible from 620 miles away.
Scientists at the time believed it was caused by either a meteorite or a fragment of a comet, although no obvious impact site or mineral remnants
of such an object were ever found.
Furthermore, it is stated in some publications that if you line up the point of origin of Tesla's beam, to the point that he directed it to - then
draw a line beyond that on a global map, it is a straight line to Tunguska, Siberia.
This sounds very much like a radiowave that actually skips off the atmosphere...
Any thoughts out there is ATS-land?
