The Tesla Turbine

RE: The Tesla Turbine
At the end of Tesla quotes on post #1:

Quote:Dr. Tesla smiled an inscrutable smile.

“All I have to say on that point is that my airship will have neither gas bag, wings nor propellers,” he said. “It is the child of my dreams, the product of years of intense and painful toil and research. I am not going to talk about it any further. But whatever my airship may be, here at least is an engine that will do things that no other engine ever has done, and that is something tangible.”

Tesla talks no further of his air ship.
In 1912 see Excerpt from “The boy’s book of new inventions –
The Tesla Turbine” 1912
we would have heard more if it were posted.
The search for the proper document:

the pdf download:

Quote:It will be so tremendously powerful that it will make a veritable rope of air above the great
machine to hold it at any altitude the navigators may choose, and also a rope of air in
front or in the rear to send it forward or backward at almost any speed desired.
Here veritable in English means real pulling force (rope) for vertical
flight. The same applies to the horizontal using Tesla bulbs ( 1/2
sphere of aluminum).
The turbine powering the electrical sound waves is so powerful and
not to say as anti Tesla agents might say the turbine is the flight
source.

In 1915, the ship powered by the turbine goes 300 miles per second.
Excerpt from “Tesla’s new device like bolts of Thor” Dec 8, 1915 NY Times:
Quote:“…He is not yet ready to give the details of the engine which he says will render fruitless
any military expedition against a country which possesses it. Suffice it to say that the
destructive invention will go through space with a speed of 300miles per second, a
manless airship without propelling engine or wings, sent by electricity to any desired point
of the globe on its errand of destruction, if destruction its manipulator wishes to effect.”
Details have been figured out to some degree as this is years later
as Tesla proposed a drone to detonate explosives with Tesla bulbs
like X-Ray tubes attached to the ship.

The only reason for the turbine was to power the Tesla ships when
the external power from the Tower was no longer available.
However this became a non issue when the Tesla wave forces were
realized almost any internal power can be used now.
So no need now for the Tesla turbine just copper coil adjustments
on the same circuits Tesla always used.

Things like brush discharge are involved to set the proper operation
for the electrical force waves and Tesla bulbs (1/2 sphere aluminum)
in a Tesla patent to make concentrated force waves.

Gawd, that reminds me of a 9th or 10th grade science project I did way back when.
The materials were Balsa wood, Reynolds Wrap, Magnet wire, and an old high voltage transformer out of a TV.
It did work, but not very well.

It was similar to this :
