Legendary Tesla towers are operational in Russia

Many people still dream about wireless power transmission that Tesla developed back in 1870s. Scientists are still puzzled how the genius scientists managed to do this, however the “Wardenclyffe Tower” or more popular name Tesla Tower was built on the Manhattan Island in 1900’s. Project was never completed, most likely due to lack of money income for his experiments. He believed that his Tower projects would be the most effective electric systems in world where he could produce and transfer vast amount of energy across great distances. Imagine the world without all those electrical cables in household, neighborhood and between cities? It sounds great, and that’s just what he had in mind!

  • Russian “Tesla tower” can produce so much power with single lightning hit equal to all power generation facilities in all of Russia.

Today scientists are close to wireless power transmission dream of genius Nikola Tesla. Funny thing is the person that is making the most progress on this area is again a person from Croatia, young scientist called Marin Soljačić. If Soljačić team manages to complete their wireless transmission it will be another scientific breakthrough that will change our world beyond recognition, to a better stance we hope!

What Tesla had in mind and never managed to complete beyond mere trials is what now Croatian scientist might manage to do. With already built Tesla towers in Russia that have the option to store electrical energy but still need to transmit it via cables, we might be entering a new era of development of human civilization.

If you want to see how Tesla towers look like you can see them just 40km from Moscow and at the moment this is the only example of such electric generators in the world, and yeah it’s energy can supply the entire Russia (however just for 100 microseconds).

There experiments in Russia aren’t new, this is the legacy of Soviet Union that started these tests in 1980’s where they built towers which channeled energy from lightning storms for many reasons. However this is very unique and you won’t find it anywhere else. It would be nice if Croatian Marin Soljačić would team up with scientists of this facility and we might see real fully functional Tesla Tower before we imagine.

This facility is not operational due to the high cost of it’s maintenance, so it is only turned on on special occasions.

Russian TV stations said that when it is turned on due to high voltage and static charge anyone stainting anywhere close will make it’s hair bristle. What can we say, Slavs (in this case Serbs, Croats and Russians) might change the human civilization once again, for better!

  1. First, these are nothing to do with anything Tesla did. The high voltages are developed in a completely different way than from a Tesla Coil. The imposing looking structures on either end of the field are not the marx generators. One, the smaller of the two, is the 3 phase, full wave rectifier stack that changes the power from a distant power plant to DC energy. It provides very high voltage DC energy to the other similar looking structure, which is nothing more than a voltage regulator and switching system to fire the generator. The actual marx generator is the tower between them. It gets the least attention because it’s not as menacing looking as the other two structures.

    Its purpose was to test aircraft assemblies for EMP hardening. Obviously you “load” a small aircraft or model for testing. Truthfully, this is not a very good way to test for EMP hardening because there is very little high power microwave energy generated it this way. On the other hand it is fine for testing for lightning hardening. This facility is pointed out as an example of more advanced sciences developed by the Soviet era, when in fact, in the United States when EMP hardening is tested it is in a machine that generates an actual EMP pulse without high voltage discharges, actually, much more advanced than using a huge inefficient marx generator. It is also much, much cheaper to run as well. They don’t get much attention because they don’t use huge menacing looking structures and lightning bolt sized sparks to execute the test.

    This does not harvest lightning, it generates it artificially. Second, it is also not an attempt to create a directed energy weapon as proposed by others. I hope this clears up any inaccuracies in the original article, although I admit, much less dramatic sounding, considering it would never work for it’s intended purpose. I propose that is the real reason it was abandoned.

  2. here is the deal: a brazilian man claims do have achieved Nikola Tesla electricity wireless transfer sucessfuly.
    Also he says to be able to power wirelessly a small electric car.
    Here is the link to the youtube video:
    His website (in brazilian portuguese):
    I have no knowledge over the matter but i think its worth a look to consideration, thats why I am posting it.
