This is part of a series of posts about Flat Earthers; this particular post originated here on my facebook:
Tesla is often associated with the suppression of information and disclosure. The relevance is that of #FlatEarthers. To my mind, and perhaps I am mistaken, there is seen a relation. On that assumption, unless the book was rewritten, Tesla considered the earth to be a #globe:
"Still another scheme, far more important and attractive, was to derive power from the rotationary energy of terrestrial bodies. I had discovered that objects on the earth's surface owing to the diurnal rotation of the GLOBE, are carried by the same alternately in and against the direction of translatory movement. From this results a great change in momentum which could be utilized in the simplest imaginable manner to furnish motive effort in any habitable region of the world. I cannot find words to describe my disappointment when I later realized that I was in the predicament of Archimedes, who vainly sought for a fixed point in the universe."
