Energy [more]
Hot Dry Rock Geothermal Energy Technology (petrothermal) was recognized by Nikola Tesla as having excellent potential for producing abundant AC power.  "It is a well-known fact that the interior portions of the globe are very hot, the temperature rising, as observations show, with the approach to the center at the rate of approximately 1— C. for every hundred feet of depth."

Tributes to Tesla
Ernst F.W. Alexanderson:
    "In almost every step of progress in electrical power engineering, as well as in radio, we can trace the spark of thought back to Nikola Tesla.  There are few indeed who in their lifetime see realization of such a far-flung imagination."  "We think of his contribution much oftener than that of Ampere and Ohm . . . the induction motor and our power system are enduring monuments to Nikola Tesla." (See also)

Edwin H. Armstrong:
"During wartime there was much research under way toward reducing the Tesla concept of the guided weapon in various laboratories. . . . So far as I know, the credit for the concept rests entirely with him."

Bernard A. Behrend:
"Were we to seize and eliminate from our industrial world the results of Mr. Tesla—s work, the wheels of industry would cease to turn, our electric cars and trains would stop, our towns would be dark, our mills would be dead and idle. . . . His name marks an epoch in the advance of electrical science.  From that work has sprung a revolution."

Louis Cohen:
"In reading Tesla's work one is constantly struck by his many suggestions which have anticipated later developments in the radio art."

Gano Dunn
"Prolific inventor, who solved the greatest problem in electrical engineering of his time, and gave to the world the polyphase motor and system of distribution, revolutionizing the power art and founding its phenomenal development.  My contact as your assistant at the historic Columbia University high frequency lecture and afterward has left an indelible impression and inspiration which has influenced my life." 

W. H. Eccles 
"Throughout his long life of eighty-five years, Tesla seldom directed attention to his own successes, never wrote up again his old work, and rarely claimed priority though continually pirated. Such reserve is especially striking in a mind so rich in creative thought, so competent in practical achievement." (See also)

A. P. M. Fleming 
"We pay grateful homage to his genius which has greatly enriched our knowledge of electrical science, and his inventions -- so lavishly produced -- which have added so greatly to the amenities and the material progress of mankind."  (See also)

Lee de Forest:
"If I could be any other man I would be Nikola Tesla."

Charles F. Scott:
"The evolution of electric power from the discovery of Faraday in 1831 to the initial great installation of the Tesla polyphase system in 1896 is undoubtedly the most tremendous event in all engineering history."

Lord Kelvin (William Thomson)
"Tesla has contributed more to electrical science than any man up to his time."

Thomas Commerford Martin:
"Tesla's influence may truly be said to have marked an epoch in the progress of electrical science."
Nikola Tesla, by T.C. Martin, pp. 582-586
Tesla's Oscillator and other Inventions, by T.C. Martin, pp. 916-933

John Stone Stone:
". . . the more we learn about high frequency phenomena, resonance and radiation today, the nearer we find ourselves approaching what we at one time were inclined, through a species of intellectual myopia, to regard as the fascinating but fantastical speculations of a man who we are now compelled . . . to admit was a prophet."

Kenneth Swezey:
"Although practically unknown to the layman, the Tesla polyphase inventions are without question, the most important single group of inventions in the whole field of electrical engineering."

Jonathan Zenneck:
"[ Tesla's] lectures opened a new physical world to me. . . . one of the kindest men I've ever encountered.  The hours which I was permitted to spend together with [him] will always be among the fondest memories of my life."

In Tesla's Laboratory, a poem by Robert Underwood Johnson, pp. 933

What Is Man?, an essay by Samuel Langhorne Clemens

The Greatest Engineering Achievements of the 20th Century—how many of these will you use today? A car? Computer? Telephone? Explore this list of the top 20 achievements, and learn how engineering shaped a century and changed the world.  First on the list is Electrification.  Widespread use of electric power has been one of the greatest sources of social change in the 20th century.  Radio and television are listed at number six as additional major agents of social change.  [Nikola Tesla was a founding pioneer in both of these fields.]
     "A century hence, 2000 may be viewed as quite a primitive period in human history.  It's something to hope for."  Neil A. Armstrong, The Engineered Century
