Above: Experimental station at Colorado Springs where the first wireless transmission experiments were performed (1899-1900).

Above: Tesla oscillator creating a great electrical movement.

Above: The flame-like discharge measures sixty-five feet across.  Tesla sits in front of the oscillator.

Above: Tesla beside his spiral coil, with Roger Boskovich's book "Theoria Philosophiae Naturalis", East Houston St. 46, New York, 1901.

Above: Experiments with differently attuned coils, and responding to the vibration transmitted to them through the earth from an electrical oscillator.
