Russian Physicists Launch Campaign To Rebuild Tesla’s Wardenclyffe Tower And Power The World

“Tesla was right and we are ready to prove it!” So say the two Russian physicists who have just to rebuild Nikola Tesla’s in Fall, 2014. Tesla 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 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 with the use of

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.”
The principle behind the current design is that we already have an unlimited source for all the energy we could need – A 100,000 square kilometer 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.

Tesla’s proposed network of towers were designed to make use of the Earth’s own inherent conductivity, transmitting energy with very little wastage. A detailed description of how a tower works

While on Long Island weighed in at 60 tons, the prototype the Plekhanovs plan to build will only weigh two tons due to advances in materials. Its Tesla coil will be about 20 meters long.

The team are hoping to raise $800,000 to build their prototype via, which finishes up on July 25, 2014. They successfully raised $40,000 via crowdfunding last year for on the power source. A project timeline and budget are provided, and in the spirit of Tesla’s magnanimity, they pledge to make their results freely available online once the tower has been put into operation.
