“Star Wars” program, Nikola Tesla’s Missing Files, and John G. Trump. Dr. John G. Trump, was called in to analyze the Tesla papers in OAP custody. Following a three-day investigation, Dr. Trump concluded: "His [Tesla's] thoughts and efforts during at least the past 15 years were primarily of a speculative, philosophical, and somewhat promotional character often concerned with the production and wireless transmission of power; but did not include new, sound, workable principles or methods for realizing such results." Despite John G. Trump’s dismissive assessment of Tesla’s ideas immediately after his death, the military did try and incorporate particle-beam weaponry in the decades following World War II. Notably, the inspiration of the “Death Ray” fueled Ronald Reagan’s Strategic Defense Initiative, or “Star Wars” program, in the 1980s. If the government is still using Tesla’s ideas to power its technology, Seifer explains, that could explain why some files related to the inventor still remain classified.
After Nikola Tesla was found dead in January 1943 in his hotel room in New York City, representatives of the U.S. government’s Office of Alien Property seized many documents relating to the brilliant and prolific 86-year-old inventor’s work.
It was the height of World War II, and Tesla had claimed to have invented a powerful particle-beam weapon, known as the “Death Ray,” that could have proved invaluable in the ongoing conflict. So rather than risk Tesla’s technology falling into the hands of America’s enemies, the government swooped in and took possession of all the property and documents from his room at the New Yorker Hotel.
What happened to Tesla’s files from there, as well as what exactly was in those files, remains shrouded in mystery—and ripe for conspiracy theories. After years of fielding questions about possible cover-ups, the FBI finally declassified some 250 pages of Tesla-related documents under the Freedom of Information Act in 2016. The bureau followed up with two additional releases, the latest in March 2018. But even with the publication of these docu
Huge thanks to everyone who took part in Annie's #DeathrayChallenge this year! You guys totally raised the bar. Congratulations to our AWESOME winners Davydd & Elliot, who made it look so easy!

We’re so stoked to be a part of this wicked event! To celebrate Death Ray Record’s 5th Birthday, there’ll be a lineup of 16 bands + DJ’s blasting pure rock n’ roll all over Newtown. So in other words, it’s a very bad idea to miss out! Other bands include Ounce, Loud Hailer, Hans Pucket, Death Petal, O-Boy!, Church of Goya, and heapsssss more. Pick up a badge ticket from Death Ray over the next week or so for $25. We’ve got some special things in store for this one. #transistor#deathray#newtown#birthday#music
shows some unique phenomena from plasma, including filamentation. The visible color is the effect of relaxing electrons in an excited state to a lower energy level after joining the ion. The process produces light with an emission spectrum according to the characteristics of the gas used.
In physics and chemistry, plasma is a substance similar to gas with certain parts of ionized particles. The presence of a lot of load carriers makes the plasma an electrical conductor so that it reacts strongly to electromagnetic fields. Therefore, plasma has unique properties that are different from solids, liquids and gases and is considered a different form of substance. Similar to gas, plasma does not have a fixed shape or volume unless it is in a container, but in contrast to gas, plasma forms structures such as filaments, emission and layers if influenced by electromagnetic fields. Plasma commonly found include stars and fluorescent lights.
Going forward a major area of focus will be creating comics beginning with Deathray Comix Magazine.
Deathray will be the home for my various comic interests and ideas. Some ongoing, others not. The only rule will be expressing myself in an honest way and having fun. Subjects will range from Cryptozoolgy to FrankeNaut to biographical comics and essays and more.
This illustration is most likely going to be used for the cover of the first volume.
On the whole Deathray will only feature myself but I’m probably going to publish special anthology jam issues with various artists in our community.
Now to get to work.
A death Ray - weapon created by archemedes in 212 BC .
According to a common myth, the scientist Archimedes, who lived two thousand years ago, burned the occupying Roman foliage with the help of large mirrors to protect the city of Siracusa in Italy today.. According to the story of Archimedes' Defense of Syracuse, it is thought that he used giant pit mirrors or parabolic mirrors to dispose of the ships. Pits and parabolic mirrors capture the scattered light, and the energy can focus on one spot. In theory, it is possible to light the object when you project the light to a point several meters away from the point and using the parabolic mirrors. So the story of Archimedes' turning the enemy ships into cubes has no theoretical problems.
It may not be as easy as it seems in theory. First of all, giant pit mirrors must either keep the light of a giant parabolic mirror constant at a certain point for minutes, maybe even hours, so that the object is warm enough to ignite. However, the approaching enemy ships are of course moving, and if we think about two thousand years ago, it will not be easy to keep the beam of the huge pit mirrors on the ships. In addition, the distances of the vessels to the mirror are also very important in that the mirrors can reach the ships. Even the materials and even the colors used in the construction of the ships are very important in terms of realizing the same thing.
The technology lies in ancient times powerful than modern weapons.
It may or it may not.
