MEGA LIGHTNING!

MEGA LIGHTNING


In the year 1889 An eccentric scientific wizard by the name of Nicola Tesla went to a place called Colorado springs to conduct some of the most spectacular and mysterious experiments the world has ever seen.

In the photograph above you see Tesla's Colorado laboratory which is were the experiments were conducted.  This laboratory still stands to this day, it's perched atop the tallest mountain in Colorado, pikes peak.

In Tesla's personal notes it states the purpose of the laboratory and what he intended to do on top of the mountain.  At the time the lab housed the worlds largest Tesla coil and a massive Westinghouse 55,000 volt amplifying transformer. From the transformer he sent the power into his tesla coil which had a massive 200 foot long antenna atop it. nobody knows exactly what Tesla was able to accomplish with his super Tesla coil.  But one thing is for shore, that thing could make some serious lightning!

-Tesla said that he could salve the problem of energy with this device  (free energy)

-He could transmit information and power without the need of wires (replacement of the energy grid/radio tower)

-He could modify the weather and create artificial auroras.

-he could receive messages from space and transmit them.

He claimed he could do all this in 1889! 

Based on his confirmed achievements and accomplishments of a similar caliber, there is little doubt in my mind that he could actually do it. The question is how?

I think I may have cracked how he did it.  And it has to do with something Tesla was obsessed with. The Ionosphere.
Tesla openly stated that he intended to harvest the electricity in the ionosphere and transmit power and information through the ionosphere and earth.

He wanted to use the Ionosphere as a free energy. He intended to harvest the ionosphere's power by first triggering an unnatural event called an "ionospheric discharge".

Tesla went to the top of the mountain to get as close to the ionosphere as was possible, next he dug a huge grounding rod deep into the mountain and negatively charged the entire mountain top with millions of volts.  Because the ionosphere is positively charged and the mountain is highly negatively charged he triggered a discharge between the mountain and the ionosphere (which is something that never happens naturally)

It triggered a lightning bolt so powerful that it was ridiculous.  The way it works is similar to the way ordinary lightning happens but different in many ways.

Lightning occurs because as storm clouds move they build up charge, eventually the charge becomes great enough that the clouds act like a massive capacitor and discharge into the ground.

The ionosphere Has a charge too, but it's charge docent become large enough to discharge into the ground.  Tesla made the ground extremely negatively charged and attracted the positive charge in the ionosphere to a point that a discharge was able to occur.

It's similar to how HAARP is rumored to work but insdead of pushing up the ionosphere tesla wanted to pull it down so that he could draw energy from it.

Imagine this, if you got a conductive wire and connected it to ground wile placing the other end of the wire into a thunder storm then lightning from the storm with follow the path of least resistance to ground and discharge into the wire to get to the ground more easily.

If you made the ground highly positively charged then the lightning would find it easier to discharge into the positively charged ground rather then neutral ground (because lightning is negatively charged)

Tesla figured out that enough negative charge on the ground would attract the ionosphere and trigger a discharge.  The large antenna of high negative charge atop his lab would act like a lightning rod and blast the lab with a massive continuous lightning bolt over 50 miles long.  The lightning would go through tesla's coil and produce electrical power through induction into the primary coil of the Tesla transformer.


I wonder if it's possible to go about triggering a discharge in a much easier way.  I suggest getting a big Tesla coil and attach the ball topped antenna to a near space balloon and attach the balloon to a 50 mile long conductive string.

The charge from the ionosphere would discharge into the string connected to the Tesla coil (which is grounded)  and induce a current into the primary coil to generate electricity.

Apparently, in lightning, the ground can be positively or negatively charged.

It was discovered around 1990 that above a conventional lightning strike, there is a conductive path that links the thunderstorm to the ionosphere, called a sprite. These effectively provide an electrically conductive path between the ionosphere and the cloud, and thence to Earth during conventional thunderstorms. Tesla may have been beaten to it - and found the ionosphere already discharged by conventional thunderstorms.
