TIME TRAVEL TALES is an original Project Astral series that explores the stories of time travel.
In Part I (The Chronovisor & Project Pegasus) we discussed Andrew Basiago’s claims that Nikola Tesla’s “missing papers” were utilized in time travel technology. Nikola Tesla’s body was found January 7, 1943, in room 3327 at the New Yorker Hotel; two days later, his files and blueprints were sized by the Office of Alien Property via an order from the F.B.I. This has spawned countless conspiracy theories but the true question that should be asked is… did the technology exist and if so, has it been used by our Government?
An FOIA (Freedom of Information Act) was filed in 2016 and 2018, resulting in 200+ pages of Tesla material that was previously classified. The majority of Tesla’s estate was willed to his nephew, Sava Kosanovic, who served as Minister of the Interior of the Kingdom of Yugoslavia 1944-1945. When he finally received Tesla’s files and materials, Kosanovic launched the Nikola Tesla Museum in 1952; it’s located in White City, Serbia (formerly Yugoslavia). The F.B.I. has been accused of not handing over all of Tesla’s belongings and there’s a possibility that his work has been used in U.S. Government experiments ranging from time travel to invisibility.
John G. Trump (1907-1985), an American electrical engineer, M.I.T. professor, physicist, and the paternal uncle of President Trump, was essential in the analysis of Tesla’s papers. After 18 months, his official statement read as:
“[Tesla’s] thoughts and efforts during at least the past 15 years were primarily of a speculative, philosophical, and somewhat promotional character often concerned with the production and wireless transmission of power; but did not include new, sound, workable principles or methods for realizing such results.“
Tesla’s mystique has been portrayed in the mainstream media, creating a tale of mysticism and science. In Christopher Nolan’s 2006’s film “The Prestige” Tesla is credited with helping out a magician named Robert Angier by creating a machine that teleports the subject. No documentation exists that proves Tesla built or had blueprints on a time machine; two different stories have circulated since Tesla’s death, both consisting of time travel.

The first is the famed “Philadelphia Experiment” that supposedly took place on October 28, 1943. The United States Navy destroyer escort USS Eldridge disappeared with the assistance of an invisibility cloak controlled by an electromagnetic force created by using Tesla’s “missing papers” as the experiment was organized merely 8 months after his death.

The second stories origins cannot be traced either but according to multiple texts, Tesla was shocked with over 3.5 million volts of electricity during an experiment in 1895; he became paralyzed and during that span-of-time witnessed a time dilation — allowing him to see time as one (B-Theory of time). Tesla’s assistant luckily was present and cut off the experiment before he was permanently injured or killed.
Given the uncanny links between time travel projects initiated by the U.S. Governments and Tesla’s work — we can only assume that the Philadelphia Experiment, Project Pegasus, etc are either a work of fiction or a force of mysticism.
