Russian physicists trying to rebuild Tesla’s Wardenclyffe Tower

Quote:
“Tesla was right and we are ready to prove it!” So say the two Russian physicists who have just launched an Indiegogo campaign to rebuild Nikola Tesla’s Wardenclyffe Tower in Fall, 2014. Tesla believed that the tower could transmit power wirelessly but this was never definitively proven in his lifetime.

If he was right, and after extensive study the team are convinced he was, the project could provide an efficient, worldwide energy transmission system that would distribute all the clean energy we can use.

That Tesla was a genius is undisputed even by his detractors, but more than 70 years after his death, he remains a polarizing figure.

Leonid Plekhanov and Sergey Plekhanov have spent the last five years studying and modeling Tesla’s notes and patents for the tower and they are certain the project is viable with the use of modern materials and technology.

As their Indiegogo page notes: “Nikola Tesla had left us a very detailed description of the design of his Magnifying Transmitter System and the physical principles of its operation. We are a group of modern-day physicists, trained in many areas related to the operation of his Worldwide Energy System. We’ve conducted a thorough scientific expertise of his works and came to the conclusion that Tesla was on the right track.”

Anyone have a problem with free electricity?

So many answers. Oh so political.

But on a useful side to this conversation this is a really really neat concept and I hope it can be brought to fruition.

I understand "wireless transmission," butI'm not sure how they will provide it "free." Someone still has to generate the power. That costs money.

1) Put up solar panels
2) Connect them to wireless transmitter
3) ?????
4) Profit

I'm not sure just this is 100% possible, but they suggested a huge solar panel field.

The principle behind the current design is that we already have an unlimited source for all the energy we could need – the sun. A 100,000 square kilometer solar array in a nice, sunny desert somewhere could provide for all our global power needs. The problem lies in distributing that power, as current systems leak so much energy.

Someone has to make the machine that makes the free power. That's the sale, the machine(s). The buyers would compare the cost of the machine to the cost of their electric bill and see which one wins out.




I read somewhere (popular science?) that the Earth gets enough solar energy in an hour to power everything we need for a year. Aside from the obvious problems from blocking out the sun if we collected everything the sun gave us for power, collecting the power isn't a problem. The problem is that the system that collects the power is more expensive than the savings the system provides by collecting the power. The hope with the subidies is that the manufacturing/collectors will eventually get efficient enough that you get past the break even point. Without that initial (an constant) research, it will never get there.

Personally, I get enough sun and wind at my house that if it were cost effective, I'd already have these systems installed.

Renewable energy is just one of those things.

The cost would go down if it was more popular, but it's not that popular because of the cost.
