    The boat was not Tesla's first attempt at radio transmission and reception. How long had that boat been in planning and testing stages BEFORE it was put on display?

    Many people know things that can work but have not tested them so they remain ideas. Jules Verne had ideas that were not tested and found part of reality for many years. And da Vinci had similar ideas. And what about the man who said that the earth revolved around the sun? He was jailed because he did not toe the line with all those others who had a differing theory.

    There are some things that mathematical and aeronautical experts said could not work but prototypes were made and they were found to be workable.

    Others, like Velikovsky, were feared because they upset standing theories. In retrospect, they are found to have correct views and theories. The idea that the old masters have to be dead for 50 years before a new theory is contemplated is not always true because there are still some who say Velikovsky was a fool. However, he is now being seen as someone with good theories, much better theories than those of the people who were against him.

    Same as Tesla. Marconi had his opportunities and he took them and succeeded by them. Tesla is seen by those same people as unrelated to radio while the elements and functions of much of what Tesla did were used by others in their experiments. What Tesla did is still inspirational to those who lack imagination. Closed minds deny this, however.

    It was Jupiter, not Venus. I remember reading something about this about 25-30 years ago. Memory fog...

    However, for anyone who wants more about this, there is a lot about this and one can find it easily on the web.

    Interesting Einstein conversation found in a blog...

    Let me stipulate right now that Einstein and Velikovsky were friends for many decades, and there is no doubt that Einstein did read Worlds in Collision.

    It was August 1952, eight or ten weeks after we moved to Princeton. Elisheva and I sat on a bench at the boathouse on the shore of Carnegie Lake, which sprawls in the valley only a few minutes’ walk from our home, and talked with the boatman. We saw a tiny boat with a sail approaching the anchorage. An elderly man with his head covered by a wide-brimmed hat against the rays of the setting sun came from the boat and, going toward the boathouse, looked at us with his friendly smile. Only now I recognized Einstein. I approached him and named myself.

    “Ah, you are the man who brought the planets into disorder,” said he in German, and the smile disappeared from his face. He was carrying the oars into the boathouse. I made a move to help him, but he kept the oars. I heard a challenge in this greeting and said:

    “I would like an occasion to meet you and discuss. . . .”

    “But what do you know of astronomy?” he said dryly.

    “I know to put questions,” I said, or only thought so.

    “Not one of these days, sometime later,” he said.

    “May I write you?”

    “Do it,” he said, and was already a bit impatient to be away—his home is at the other end of town. His car moved on the unpaved road that runs along Carnegie Lake, and Elisheva and I went home, uphill, only several hundred feet from the mooring platform.

    Aren't you ASHAMED of publicly providing fellow radio amateurs DEMONSTRABLY FALSE information?

    LIES ...


    -- TESLA did NOT invent radio, or dozens of other things you assert on this thread;
    --There were NO SPACE PROBES to Venus, or Jupiter or ANYWHERE ELSE while Einstein was alive.
    --The first man-made object to deliberately leave the Earth Moon system happened 6 YEARS AFTER Einstein died.

    How can anyone BE YOUR FRIEND when you PUBLICLY LIE, providing FALSE INFORMATION??
