We here at the Tesla Memorial Society of New York want the world to
know of Tesla. Tesla’s impact on our civilization is tremendous,
and his memory should be kept alive.
In 1917, Tesla was awarded the Edison Medal, the most
coveted electrical prize in the United States.
Nikola Tesla’s name has been honored with an International Unit
of Magnetic Flux Density called “Tesla”.
The United States Postal Service honored Tesla with a commemorative stamp in 1983.
Tesla was inducted into the Inventor’s Hall of Fame in
The Nikola Tesla Award is one of the most distinguished honors presented
by the Institute of Electrical Engineers. The award has been given
annually since 1976.
The Nikola Tesla Award is presented annually since 1968, at
the Area Power Conference, Duluth, Minnesota. The award is
furnished by Siemens Westinghouse Power Corporation.

Many of the new technologies in the world today, are based on
Tesla’s ideas. Tesla spent 50 years of his life to find a way for
interplanetary communications, especially with Mars. He is the
first scientist in the world to use the Ionosphere for scientific
purposes (The Ionosphere is the upper part the atmosphere under constant
bombardment of solar energy, which breaks down molecules into ions

The Tesla Memorial Society of New York is proposing that Tesla’s
birthday, July 10th, be proclaimed by the United Nations “Nikola Tesla
Day”. This day will signify a day of science, cosmos explorations,
and brotherhood among nations and religions around the world.
We are asking all Tesla admirers and all governments around the
world to support the idea of “Nikola Tesla Day”.
The World Columbian Exposition in Chicago in 1893 was the World’s
Fair commemorating 400 years since Chrstopher Columbys set foot in the
New World. This was the first great victory of Tesla’s
Alternating Current Electricity. Tesla and George Westinghouse
started the electrification of the globe.

Tesla Unit for magnetic flux density equation (T=W/m2) on Serbian money.
Tesla = Weber/m²
Nikola Tesla’s name has been honored with the
international unit of magnetic flux density called “Tesla”. All
magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) machines are calibrated with Tesla Unit
(from .2 Tesla to 9 Tesla). MRI machines work on the principle of
a homogeneous magnet field. Nikola Tesla discovered the Rotating
Magnetic Field in Budapest, 1882. The Tesla Unit for magnetism was
established in 1956 in the Rathaus of Munich, Germany by the
International Electrotechnical Commission Committee in Action.
Because of the tremendous importance of the MRI
technology and widespread use of the MRI machines around the world,
which are all calibrated in Tesla Units, Tesla’s name connected with the
MRI will be known more and more in the future and the years to come.
Magnetic Resonance Imaging (MRI) is extremely
important for medical diagnosis of internal organs of the human body,
especially the diagnosis of cancer, tumors, degenerative diseases of the
brain and spinal cord. The modern diagnosis of the internal organs of
the human body would be today unthinkable without MRI. MRI
machines are widespread with many variations in size and capacity
all around the world. The revenue of MRI machines sales was 1.46
billion dollars in 2002. Revenue for MRI machine sales is expected
to increase in the following years.
MRI employs a strong homogeneous magnetic field and
specific radio frequency to which many elements, especially hydrogen
nuclei respond with radio frequency signals. These signals are
analyzed by computer reconstruction algorithms. The healthy tissue
and pathological tissue have different radio frequency signals and
produce different images on MRI. Therefore enable us to make
diagnosis of pathological tissues of the body.
MRI has the advantage over CT scan, it uses no
ionizing radiation and does not cause cumulative harm. The only
contraindication of those related to the high magnetic field.
