This is a wonderful newspaper article from 1904. Frank G. Carpenter interviewed Nikola Tesla on two separate occasions, the first time was September of 1894 at Tesla's laboratory on East Houston and the second interview took place at the Waldorf on the evening of December 17, 1904. Mr. Carpenter never published his notes from the first interview until this article where he combines both interviews into a marvelous glimpse into the world of Nikola Tesla.

During the early 20th Century, John D. Rockefeller Jr. designed and financed over 45 miles of carriage roads and 16 spectacular Carriage Road Bridges in Acadia National Park in the forests of Mount Desert Island in Maine. Every bridge is built with hand-hewn local granite. Built in 1920, the Jordan Pond Bridge is a 20-foot single segment arch span and is 40 feet long.

Three Monolithic Domes comprise this beautiful retirement home in Jay, Florida. Built into a hillside by South Industries Inc. of Menan, Idaho, the largest dome has a diameter of 50 ft, a height of 30 ft and a living area of about 3400 sq ft. Two additional structures, each 32 feet by 12 feet, function as a patio dome and a utility dome. http://ow.ly/xDzj30bc1By #Monolithic #MonolithicDome #MonolithicDomes #MonolithicDomeInstitute #Dome #Domes #Concrete #Thin-Shell #House #Houses #Greenbuilding #SustainableHousing #Sustainability #Homes #Home #Architecture #Engineering #Design #Florida

"Engineering, electrical and mechanical, is positive in results. There is scarcely a subject that cannot be mathematically treated and the effects calculated or the results determined beforehand from the available theoretical and practical data. The carrying out into practise of a crude idea as is being generally done is, I hold, nothing but a waste of energy, money and time." ~Nikola Tesla, "The Electrical Experimenter," Volume VI, No. 70, February, 1919, Page 744.

This Monolithic Dome home in Illinois has 6 solar-thermal collectors that collect the sun’s heat and convert it into thermal energy. It heats water that circulates through the radiant heating system to heat the home. The home is a hemisphere with a 48-foot diameter and a tubular extension, built using a single air-formed membrane. The hemispheric main dome encompasses two stories, four bedrooms, two baths, kitchen, dining room, living room, utility room, nooks and crannies for storage. The tubular extension is a 24-foot hemisphere, four feet over center and 60 feet long. It holds a two-car garage, workshop and utility space http://ow.ly/tvvS30aS8Ym #Monolithic #MonolithicDome #MonolithicDomes #MonolithicDomeInstitute #Dome #Domes #Concrete #Thin-Shell #House #Houses #Greenbuilding #SustainableHousing #Sustainability #Homes #Home #Architecture #Engineering #Design #Illinois #SolarPower #CleanEnergy

Located in Prowers County, Colorado and built in 1936 by the Works Progress Administration, the Douglas Crossing Bridge is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The bridge has six 14-foot spans which total 112.8 ft in length over Two Butte Creek.

Designed by Eduardo Torroja y Miret, the Quince Ojos Viaduct in Madrid, Spain was completed in 1933. The free cantilever girder bridge has both deck and piers made of reinforced concrete. Span lengths: 15 x 7 m; Architect: Modesto López Otero; Architect: Augustin Aguirre. (The bridge looks like an arch bridge, but due to the joints placed at each center of a span, the half-arches actually carry as cantilevers.) http://ow.ly/ccwU30aSf8m #engineer #engineers #engineering #architecture #design #bridge #bridges #viaduct #concrete #cantilever #EduardoTorroja #Torroja #History #Spain #Madrid

"The inspirational value of the space program is probably of far greater importance to education than any input of dollars... A whole generation is growing up which has been attracted to the hard disciplines of science and engineering by the romance of space." ~Arthur C(harles) Clarke http://ow.ly/ZPrk30aSamq #Quote #Quotes #Quotation #Quotations #Engineering #Engineer #Engineers #Engineeringquote #Bridges #mathematics #math #maths #arthurcclarke #space #NASA #STEM #science

This Illustrates Tests With Spark Discharges From a Ball of Forty Centimeters Radius in Tesla's Wireless Plant Erected at Colorado Springs in 1899. The Ball Is Connected to the Free End of a Grounded Resonant Circuit Seventeen Meters in Diameter. The Disruptive Potential of a Ball, Is, According to Tesla, in Volts Approximately V=75,400r (r Being in Centimeters), That Is, in This Case 75,400 x 40=3,016,000 Volts. The Gigantic Tesla Coil Which Produced These Bolts of Thor Was Capable of Furnishing a Current of 1,100 Amperes in the High Tension Secondary. The Primary Coil Had a Diameter of 51 Feet! This Tesla Coil Produced Discharges Which Were the Nearest Approach to Lightning Ever Made by Man.
