Tesla tower

  1. Sep 2, 2007 #1
    I haven't looked into it much but I was watching a documentary that said Tesla intended the tower to fire a massive ball of electricity all the way around the globe and back to the tower again and keep repeating the process. What the hells that all about?

    I thought the Tesla tower was supposed to be so positively charged that it pull massive amounts of electricity out of the ionosphere and thats how man made lightning was formed.

    Whats this flying electron ball about?
