      I have just joined.

      There are two things I am interested in-

      1. Is anyone carrying on with Tesla's Radio Astronomy research; i.e.
      picking up where he left off; maybe through information from one of
      his assistants?

      2. Anyone looking at Boscovich's theory? Tesla was working from
      Boscovich's theory; both were from the same country. Anyone doing
      theoretical work connecting Boscovich to Tesla?

      Regards

        Never heard of either of these things. How about some more details
        as well as source for the information he was working on these things.
        Don't remember reading anything by him.

            I have seen print of Tesla's claims of getting radio signals from Mars &
            the like ,
            around the 1920 or 1930's , but , the print was usually in publications .....
            Like The Experimenter & The Scientific American ,
            not to say the 2 magazines are not without some technical merit , but
            Newspaper articles of the time have very little credibility...
            Lemme check something.....Tesla Man Out of Time ,starting at page 108 ,
            mentions ~1897 "claimed that communication with Mars would be possible
            in a short time" (top of page 111) theres also a few patent numbers mentioned
            on page 110 # 645,576 # 649, 621 & # 613,809 , all granted pre 1900.
            Interesting paragraph , reference articles can be found in Electrical Review
            late 1800's & early 1900's , if you can find reprints of the Magazine.....

            Seems like Boscovich & Tesla did not have the chance to actually cross paths
            looking at their respective time lines.....

            BOSCOVICH, Roger Joseph, S.J. (Croatian: Bo.kovic, rudder Josip),
            physicists and universal scholar, * 11 May 1711 in the city republic at
            that time Ragusa/Dubrovnik as 8. Child in an Croatian-Italian buyer family.
            13. Febr. 1787 in Milan. - first instruction in the Jesuitenkollegium
            Ragusinum, where one recognized its extraordinary abilities and recommended
            further training in Rome. B. as Novize in the Collegium Romanum, starting
            from 1732, studied from 1725 to 1731, he concerned himself - lively by its
            teacher Orazio Borgondio - with scientific problems. Still before its 1744
            priest consecration and admission as Profess of the S.J., taken place, B.
            becomes already 1740 Borgondios successors at the famous chair for
            mathematics at the Collegium Romanum, that among other things before it.
            Christoph Clavius, Christoph Grienberger and Athanasius Kircher had. This
            transport opened the entrance to the beautiful-mental and scholarly circles
            of Rome for the young professor - also a talentierter poet -, whereby the
            invitations had particularly extensive consequences for his career to the
            Sundays meetings in the summer residence of the undersecretary of state of
            the church state, cardinal Valenti Gonzaga. They led among other things to
            it that Pope Benedikt XIV. entrusted it with the solution of
            technical-industrial problems, e.g. investigations to the propagation of
            tears in the dome of the Peter cathedral (1742 together with T. le Seur and
            F. Jacquier), the production of of a new map of the church state and the
            measurement of a meridians (1750-1752, together with C Maire) and an
            appraisal to the final dewatering of the Pontini sumps (1764). The
            profitable results of these work secured the continuing sympathetic
            consideration Benedikts XIV. and its successor Klemens XIII., which it -
            together with the principle of the Jesuitenordens to use its members for B.
            where their special strengths are appropriate - which liberty gave, for one
            of the prominent scientists of Europe to become. Numerous publications and
            close contacts to prominent scholars led to first memberships in renowned
            scientific academies (e.g. Bologna 1746, Paris 1748). 1757 began the time
            of his large journeys and activities for B. outside of the church state.
            Its first journey led it as a consultant in a controversy over water laws
            to Vienna, where it zubrachte more than one year and several times from
            emperor Franz I. and empress Maria Theresia became to receive to the
            audience. In Vienna and published he wrote its hauptwerk Philosophiae
            naturalis theoria, its lasting fame justified. The Theoria is the first
            attempt to describe the subject and its characteristics by a kind of
            elementary components and a kind from forces to (a goal, which is called in
            modern physics Grosse combination '). B.s elementary particles are
            expansionless force centers ("puncta"), which are equipped with inertia and
            interact with one another over a uniform force law("curva Boscovichiana ").
            B.s proved force law later than, contributed, in particular
            nevertheless its Theoria without foundation crucially to the development
            of physics by the insight that one must separate for the research and
            description mikrokosmos from the Primat of the sensory impressions and use
            its ability for abstraction, even if one itself thereby usually of
            "descriptive explanations" discharged (Ernst Cassierer called therefore
            1922 the Theoria the "nature-philosophical hauptwerk of the epoch", and
            Friedrich Nietz wrote 1886: B.s theory was achieved "the largest triumph
            over the senses, that so far on ground connection is"). 1759 and 1760
            followed mehrmonatige stays in Paris and/or London. In England B. of many
            as a successor of Newton was regarded (Peter Henrici wrote in addition
            1987: "into simple words, Boscovich repeats with Newton what Galilei did
            with Copernicus: he bring celestial mechanics into terrestrial physics").
            Unusually rapidly B. was selected to the member of the Royal Society, to
            which he dedicated its training poem De to the thanks solis AC lunae
            defectibus. Indeed B.s has dynamistische atomistic their strongest, to in
            20 beginning. Jh. handing influence on the British natural scientists
            (Priestley, Robison, Young, Davy, Kelvin, Faraday, Maxwell, J.J. Thomson)
            exercised. From London B. traveled after Venice, of where a ship too late
            brought him after Konstantinopel, so that it could not observe in June 1761
            the taking place Venus transit there. By illness stopped, he could only
            months later the home journey over Bulgaria, Moldau, Poland, Vienna and
            Venice (where he drew up 1763 the new edition of its Theoria) to Rome
            begin. There it had to recognize soon that the Collegium Romanum could not
            be no more its mental homeland. After the medal general at that time
            Allesandro Centurione B.s scientific work and theories had already
            classified 1754 as gefaehrlich ', the Roman school remained strictly with
            its peripatetisch scholastischen instructional contents, while in nearly
            all academies and (also) universities led by Jesuiten outside of of Italy
            the physics of Newton and its Apologeten triumphierte. B. accepted
            therefore 1764 a call on the chair for mathematics at the University of
            Pavia close Milan. By the appointment "more modern" professors hoped the
            government in Vienna (prince Kaunitz among other things), to be able to
            advance the theresianischen school reforms also in the then habsburgischen
            Lombardei rapidly. Apart from its training activity in Pavia B. worked on
            planning, the building and the machine equipment of the new observatory in
            the Jesuitenkollegium Brera in Milan, which was praised after its
            completion as the most modern plant of its kind. Later however plots and
            increasing tensions with the Ko-director caused it to quit its positions in
            Brera and Pavia 1772. Soon thereafter, in June 1773, Pope Klemens XIV.
            signed that fatal Breve, which sealed the world-wide dissolution of the
            Jesuitenordens. B. was now without place and without mental and religious
            homeland. It followed therefore an offer of its French friends Lalande,
            Vergennes, Condorcet among other things, to come to Paris and to begin
            there particularly the heavily doped place of a director created for it for
            naval optics. Despite contestations by envious colleagues he dedicated his
            whole energy to the scientific work (optics, astronomy, improvement of
            nautical instruments), renewed old and closed new acquaintances (Priestley,
            Franklin). Because of the increasing degradation of its health, which he
            attributed to the climate in Paris, it looked for 1782 on around giving
            time off. B. traveled to Italy, visited old friends and edited a collection
            of his optical and astronomical work (Opera pertinentia opticam et
            astronomiam), which 1785 in 5 volumes were published. Soon after it its
            physical and psychological condition began itself to worsen drastically.
            Finally a cold led to a pneumonia, which its weakened organism could not
            repel any longer. In the morning 13 of February 1787 Roger J. Boscovich,
            died S.J.. He was buried in the May countries church Santa Maria Podone. -
            Boscovich was an ingenious nature philosopher, physicist, a mathematician,
            an astronomer, a Geodaet, an engineer, an archaeologist, a travel writer, a
            poet and a diplomat. Werner Heisenberg called it the "Croatian Leibniz".
            World-descriptive B. represented the strictly binaryistic view that the
            reality is developed by two separated and in each case principles - spirit
            and subject -, independent for itself, (s. appendix to the Theoria:
            Appendix ad Metaphysicam pertinens de Anima et Deo). Only for the subject
            the mechanistical Determinismus following from its nature philosophy
            applies. In this connection it defined a "superbrain" with an immense
            (although because of the finite number puncta of the finite) capacity,
            which would be able, the positions, speeds and reciprocal effects of all
            particles of the universe and thus all past to seize present and future
            events. A similar "spirit" was brought only later by Laplace in the play
            and found than "Laplace' Daemon" entrance into the literature. Boscovichs
            nature philosophy enclosure beside the model of the microstructure of the
            subject and its characteristics also statements at space and time and their
            linkage, to subject with extremely high density and to independent next to
            each other many university verses - terms, mentioned above, which play a
            large role in modern relativity theory and/or cosmology. Boscovichs working
            disproves tendencies in the research for clearing-up, which is often
            inclined to it, the positions of the natural sciences and the catholicism
            as edge zones during this transformation process to marginalisieren. As
            quintessence can to the meaning Boscovichs for the development of the
            natural sciences be considered, which Niels bore 1958 about it said: "Our
            esteem for the purposefulness OF Boscovich's great scientific work, and the
            inspiration behind it, increases the more as incoming goods realize the
            extent tons which it served ton pave the way for later developments......
            into the pursuit OF look for novel developments, it is essential that
            incoming goods emergency only keep to eye open for unforeseen discoveries,
            but that incoming goods of acres conscious OF standing on the foundations
            laid by the pioneers OF science."

            Works: Boscovich published over 80 work to a broad spectrum of fields of
            knowledge. Since their complete enumerating would blow up the framework of
            this article, only the most important are specified in the following one:

            particular to its "Theoria philosophiae naturalis". The largest part of
            these publications appeared in Croatian language, of it can be indicated
            here only the most important. This applies also to the English-language
            work, whose number is likewise considerable (for a nearly complete list s.

              ...radio astronomy...
              In general is alive & well. In the specific sense of search for extraterrestrial
              intelligence, at least via radio, it goes on. SETIatHome runs more or less
              continuously as background on this PC, and many around the world.

              http://setiathome.berkeley.edu/

              My (unresearched) understanding is that Tesla _once_ 'heard' 'three fairy taps'
              in Colorado Springs. Looking back from a bit over 100 years, seems as likely
              as not Tesla 'heard' some other wireless experimenter. There were many. Or
              perhaps some local noise source.

              I am aware of SETI. But there was a fairly large gap between SETI being set up and Tesla s announcements on detecting alien radio communication; about 50 years

                I am aware of SETI. But there was a fairly large gap between SETI being set up and Tesla's announcements on detecting alien radio communication; about 50 years gap. I'm wondering did anyone carry on Tesla's work from the beginning on his claimed alien radio contact; maybe working with him as an assistant; and maybe still using one of Tesla' s radio transmitters?

                  Exceedingly unlikely. Tesla's receiving equipment was far too crude
                  to have heard such signals. Why would anyone use one of Tesla's "radio
