Amazing find, MB! OK, so I've seen the papers John Trump is talking about. Really. And I can confirm what he is saying at 1:50 and thereabouts.
The business about the time machine is idiotic of course. What John Trump is referring to is a vacuum tube that Tesla would mount at the business end of a big resonator. The design allowed a particle beam to escape the tube, and propagate through the air. There was some interest in this idea as the basis for a practical particle beam weapon, especially in the 80's during Reagans "Star Wars" push. I have no idea if it was workable.
