Κομμάτι από το ομώνυμο άλμπουμ του “κιθαρίστα των κιθαριστών”, Allan Holdsworth

Ο πύργος Wardenclyffe (1901-1917), γνωστός και ως Πύργος Tesla, ήταν πειραματικός σταθμός ασύρματης μετάδοσης που σχεδιάστηκε και κατασκευάστηκε από τον NT στο Shoreham της Νέας Υόρκης το 1901-1902. Σκοπός ήταν η μετάδοση μηνυμάτων, τηλεφωνικών και fax στην Αγγλία και σε πλοία που διέπλεαν τον Ατλαντικό, με βάση τη θεωρία του εφευρέτη περί χρήσης της Γης ως διάμεσου. Το project, υπερβολικά φιλόδοξο για την εποχή του Marconi, υποστηρίχθηκε αρχικά από τον τραπεζίτη J. P. Morgan, ο οποίος στη συνέχεια απέσυρε την χρηματοδότηση.

The Wardenclyffe Tower (1901-1917), a.k.a. Tesla Tower, was an experimental wireless transmission station designed and built by NT in Shoreham, New York in 1901-1902. The aim was to transmit messages, telephone and fax to England and to ships that sailed the Atlantic, based on the theory of the inventor on land use as median. The project, too ambitious for the Marconi era, was initially supported by banker J. P. Morgan, who later withdrew the funding.

Happy Hump Day!

More about these reblogs

Lately I have been rebloging music videos from Oannes new blog. For my friends who didn’t know, or wonder why…. Oannes [aka Socratis Papahatzis] is my husband, partner in life and music and the one with my undying admiration. Together we have a band MK-O [the music of Marina Kanavaki & Oannes]. So, it’s my pleasure to share with you his [and mine] musical selections. Although here I reblog mainly his musical selections, he writes exceptional articles on various topics [some may need Translation], so do visit his site. He has my highest recommendation!
