The word “invention” has always changed the human life and its value, gifting the happiness of Journey to the Mars as well as cursing us by the sadness of Japan Nuclear Attack. Significantly, we have witnessed two opposed scenarios every time as the result of our any great discovery.
Nikola Tesla, one of the world’s most eminent inventors who has introduced us to various new technologies some of which are completely unrivalled even in this cutting edge era. But every great scientist has spent an important part of his life in several secret-findings and most of them are either lost forever or are still hidden somewhere. Then what’s about our great futuristic scientist Nikola Tesla? Did he also have some secret or ever lost inventions?? According to the history, the answer is “Yes”.
In the 1930s, Nikola Tesla asserted to have invented a new deadly weapon known as the “Death Beam” or “Death Ray” which he called “Teleforce”, and it would be fired from a distance of 200 miles to end the war. It was the time of World Wars so Tesla desired to find a way that will provide peace entirely by ending the war. He tried to interest the US War Department as well as the United Kingdom, Yugoslavia and the Soviet Union in his invention, and he continued the claims up until his death. But for unknown reasons the Armies didn’t respond and Tesla’s invention has been lost forever.
In 1934, Tesla described the Teleforce in his various letters sent to the country’s strong personalities that the weapon may be relatively large or of microscopic dimensions, enabling us to convey to a small area at a great distance trillions of times more energy than is possible with rays of any kind. Thousands of horsepower can thus be transmitted by a stream thinner than a hair, so that nothing can resist it. The nozzle would send concentrated beams of particles with such tremendous energy through the free air that a single flash will bring down a fleet of 10,000 enemy aircraft at a distance of 200 miles from a defending nation’s border and will cause armies to drop dead in their tracks.
Tesla also said there was no qualms that his invention could be stolen since he had not committed any part of it to a paper, and the blueprint for the Teleforce weapon was all in his mind.
However, Tesla primarily apprised that Teleforce has four principal mechanisms in total with a few components and methods included:
- Apparatus for producing manifestations of energy in free air instead of in a high vacuum as in the past.
- A mechanism for generating tremendous electrical force.
- A means of intensifying and amplifying the force developed by the second mechanism.
- A new method for producing a tremendous electrical repelling force. This would be the projector, or gun, of the invention.
It’s also been suggested that the charged particles would self-focus via “gas focusing”.
As per Tesla’s estimate, each of these stations or main-mechanisms would cost no more than $2,000,000 and could have been constructed in a few months.
Nikola Tesla died on 7th January, 1943, and his great invention Teleforce has also been lost with his tragic death.
Months after Tesla’s death, an American electrical engineer, inventor and physicist named John George Trump found a box intended to contain a part of Tesla’s “death ray” apparatus, and he revealed a 45-year-old multidecade resistance box which is a type of test equipment that can be used to substitute the interchanging of different values of certain passive components with a single variable output.
In the end, the question is if we find the proper technologies and mechanisms regarding Tesla’s deadly weapon Teleforce, will the war end forever? Or, it will fortify our offensive mind to commence a massive war again?!!
