Science and Invention (10:08) December 1922

Hugo Gernsback, editor

"Nikola Tesla has consistently argued that it is only a matter of time when radio and electrical engineers will advance from the present stage of radio transmission, whereby telegraphic or speech waves are propagated and received only, to that dream of all electrical men--the transmission of electric power without wires. Recently a sixteen hour continuous test was carried out in transmitting wireless telegraph signals across the Atlantic Ocean, with the aid of nine high power metal vacuum tubes of giant size, or about three feet in length."
This is the December 1922 issue of Science and Invention, Vol. 10, No. 8. It includes a ‘scientific fiction’ installment of the Dr. Hackensaw series about the far-distant year of 2025, and an article inspired by Nikola Tesla’s work titled “Transmitting Niagara Power by Radio.” Additional contents are shown below.
