The inventor already has in his laboratory a “cosmic” machine, he disclosed. He said it was driven by “cosmic particles” which strike the earth at speeds 50 times greater than light. He contended that such machines, if perfected, will supply enough power for New York city from cosmic particles striking one square foot.
The relativists theory holds that light, traveling 182,000 miles a second, is the greatest velocity. Tesla said the theory is a “mass of errors,” and that science had overlooked cosmic particles by concentrating upon cosmic rays.
