Thanks again for the reference, but unfortunately the discussion of
'Fifty-Times-Lightspeed' proton signals was NOT included in the:
"Literary Digest", 7 November 1931, page 28
Below is the transcription of that article, forwarded to me by Chuck
Ames <amescha@...>, and by Zack Widup <w9sz@...>!
[80k jpg of "Literary Digest" article available, just ask].
The article is good, calling attention to the idiocy of the relativity
coIntel, mass increase, etc. -- but it in NO way details, or even
mentions, Tesla's thoughts and pronouncements on proton or proton
aether/signal velocities of 50 Vc.
Do you know the 50 Vc reference?
[Will forward this to the AetherPhysics list, with a further request for
No High-Speed Limit, Says Tesla
SPEEDS GREATER THAN THAT OF LIGHT, which are deemed impossible by the
Einstein theory of relativity, have been produced by Dr. Nikola Tesla,
it is asserted by Dr. Tesla in an interview with Hugo Gernsback,
published in Everyday Science and Mechanics (New York).
Asserting that the Einstein theory is in many respects erroneous, Dr.
Tesla stated that as early as 1900, in his patent 787,412, he showed
that the current of his radio-power transmitter had passed over the
earth's surface with a speed of 292,830 miles a second. The highest
possible speed in the universe according to the Einstein theory is that
of light, 186,300 miles a second. Mr. Gernsback adds:
"Dr. Tesla informs me further that he knows of speeds several times
greater than that of light; and he has designed apparatus with which he
expects to project so-called electrons with a speed equal to twice that
"It is one of the principal tenets of the relativity theory that the
mass of a body increases with it's speed, and would become infinite at
the speed of light. Therefore no speeds greater than light are
Tesla also disagrees with the part of the Einstein theory which states
that the mass of an object increases with its speed. The mass of a body
is unalterable, contends Dr. Tesla, according to the article, "otherwise
energy could be produced from nothing, since the kinetic energy acquired
in the fall of a body would be greater than that necessary to lift it at
a small velocity."

It's about an invention just last year that can supposedly broadcast RF
signals at faster than light speed.
BTW, Einstein also accepted that there is a faster-than-light speed, whether
he admitted it or not. He stated that energy is equal to mass times the
square of the speed of light. The values for energy and mass are thus
related by the acceleration of light at the rate of 186,000 miles per second
per second. If there could truly NOT be a faster than 186,000 miles per
second, then how could energy be related to mass times the acceleration of
Tesla believed that there is an ether and that the ether was continually
expanding at a very rapid rate. Ether is not light, it is the media in
which light propogates. My view is that the universe would have to be
continually expanding in order to continually pump energy into the universe
to keep it vibrating. If electrons are both waves and particles and have
mass, then their oscillations would be damped if there were no constant
power source and the universe would simply evaporate into nothing. Yet
electrons have continuous oscillations and remain near absolutely constant,
so far, over 15 billion years. Electrons must be getting their constant
power source from somewhere and the ether is the best candidate.
Keep in mind, "continually expanding" of the ether does not mean time or
space are necessarily expanding. I'm referring specifically to the ether,
the media of what time, space and light are observed in. If the ether is
expanding at a constant acceleration, all elements of time, space and light
will appear to be relatively constant. The fact that the physical universe
(time and space) is also expanding is due to the observed effects of mass
