This is a collection of many of the best images from NASA's planetary exploration program. The collection has been extracted from the interactive program "Welcome to the Planets" which was distributed on the Planetary Data System Educational CD-ROM Version 1.5 in December 1995.
Remotely controlled exploration of the
cosmos began 100 years ago when Nikola Tesla
demonstrated the invention of the robot in New York City.
In 1898 he filed and was granted a patent which described radio
remote control for use in guided vehicles.
Space exploration developed from this first building block.
Tesla publicly demonstrated his first working model of a robot
guided by radio waves. This
device was unveiled to many astonished viewers at the Electrical
Exposition held at Madison Square Garden in May 1898.
This was front page news in America at that time.
It was the first time that the radio waves were used to guide a
movement of a robot-eleven years before Marconi was awarded the Nobel
Prize for the discovery of radio in 1909.
This historic moment at Madison Square Garden in New York City in
1898 showed what marvels could be achieved by using radio waves.
It was the beginning of robots and robotics, radio guided
missiles and remote control.
The radio communications and the
computer guided spaceships from mission control centers are based on
Tesla’s principal of radio remote control for use in guided vehicles.
Nikola Tesla built a laboratory in
Colorado Springs, Colorado, in 1899, to experiment with high frequency
electricity and other phenomena.
In that laboratory he received and recorded on his sensitive
instruments, cosmic radio waves. He announced that he received extraterrestrial radio signals.
The scientific community in 1899 did not believe him, because
knowledge of cosmic radio signals did not exist at that time.
But for decades now, observatory
laboratories all over the world, have been registering cosmic
emitted from hydroxyl molecules of interstellar gas clouds and the
envelopes of Red Giant Stars.
Those faint radio waves with high
penetrating potential have frequencies between 1610.6 - 1613.8 Mega
Hertz. They are emitted
from every cosmic material with temperatures above absolute zero (minus
459.67 degrees Fahrenheit).
Tesla’s historic announcement of the
existence of extraterrestrial radio signals in 1899 was met by the
scientific community at that time with resistance and disbelief. But it
was not the first time in history.
The great 17th- century astronomer and physicist Galileo was sentenced to life in prison by the inquisition court in Rome in 1633. He was punished for supporting the Copernican Theory that the earth rotates around the sun. This is now a known fact, but at the time of Galileo, according to Holy Scripture, the earth was the center of the Universe and the sun rotated around the earth. The great scientific truth is sometimes going through rough road in order to reach the goal.
The BBC film Masters of the
Ionosphere features Nikola Tesla as the first scientist in the world who wanted to
utilize the ionosphere for the benefit of humanity.
The ionosphere is the ionic-charged part of the atmosphere,
important for the transmission of radio waves.
It is the earth’s shield from solar radiation.
Today, most global radio communications depends on the
ionosphere. The existence
of the ionosphere is known since the 19th Century.
It was once called the Kennely-Heaviside layer after two
scientists exploring its existence. This thin air of the high stratosphere and beyond, where
atoms and molecules are ripped apart and electrified by incoming cosmic
and solar radiation is now known as the ionosphere.
The ionosphere is the electric atmosphere and a good conductor of
radio waves, surrounded by a layer of some poorly conducting material
such as air.
Nikola Tesla also wanted to utilize the ionosphere to transmit
electrical energy without wires over long distances. For that purpose, he built Wardenclyffe Tower in Shoreham,
Long Island (1901-1905), meant to be the first broadcasting system in
the world and a center of the wireless transmission of electrical
energy. Much of today’s technology in telecommunications evolved from
Tesla’s original ideas.
Nikola Tesla had a vision of radio
communications with planets of the solar system. His Wardenclyffe magnifying transmitter had sufficient
energy, voltage and frequency of oscillations to reach that goal.
Tesla’s vision was the exploration of cosmos.
Tesla was a man ahead of his time.
