Uncovered: Tesla’s Patent For World’s 1st “Flying Saucer”


Nikola Tesla – the man who, as many believe, was almost buried in forgotten history until a recent surge in interest over the past few decades.  Nikola Tesla’s inventions and technological breakthroughs are so incredible advanced, many are still baffled by what he invented over 120 years ago that is just now coming into recent public tech use.

The rumors that surround the man are almost as fascinating as the facts – tales of alien encounters and other strange psychic abilities all surround the fable and myth that make up the image many have of Nikola Tesla in the current age… and, sometimes, that is for good reason.

Recently, Rise Earth reported on a very, very interesting patent that Tesla submitted, along with pictorial design – entitled “The World’s First Flying Saucer” – and it’s illustration looks just like a UFO you would see in a Steven Spielberg film – the strangest part?  The patent was filed over 100 years ago.

Rise Earth explains:

Nikola Tesla is considered one of the most innovative and mysterious men who ever lived.

If Tesla hadn’t invented and researched everything he did in his time, our technology today would be considerably worse. But is there something more to Tesla?

Did he in fact have contact with Aliens as he publicly proclaimed? He is one of the most amazing inventors our civilization has ever known his knowledge and ideas went far and beyond what was known and Tesla was a Genius, and his inventions and ideas had no boundaries.

Over a hundred years ago, during the first decade of the twentieth century, Tesla filed a request to patent a peculiar aircraft, which he called “the world’s first flying saucer.”

The methods used in the design of the flying saucer matched the descriptions of those who claimed to have seen a from the UFO inside: with a discoidal capacitor with sufficient size to provide enough thrust to fly, while other small capacitors allowed to control the direction of the flying saucer, to which he added a gyroscopic stabilization system and a electric “drive” control.

Basically it is a incredibly well designed aircraft, one that we could actually manage to build today. Or have we already built it? What happened to this invention? Why are we not flying into space with Tesla’s incredible invention?


While the patent was granted, the UFO or rather called IFO as it had been identified by the insatiable imagination of Tesla, had a drawback: since the aircraft did not include an energy source of its own, it needed to be energized by the towers of wireless transmission, Tesla’s sources of “free energy”.

The lack of funding led to the abandonment of the development of the towers, so, eventually the ship also fell into darkness, and Tesla’s UFO or rather IFO was never made. But hold on Never?

Actually don’t be so sure because the US Secret Service seized all patents belonging to Tesla after his death “for reasons of national security.”

Now if Teslas ideas were insane as some had categorized them, why would the United States secret Service seize the patents for reasons of National Security? Hmmm lets think about it for a minute.

The ideas of ​​the great Nikola Tesla are incredible and better yet, way ahead of its time, many of his inventions, aimed at contributing towards world peace through free energy access, but governments and financiers of the time, did not follow the progress of Tesla’s mind.

Years later, his groundbreaking models and technological projects were used by the Nazis (not the way he had imagined it), and now numerous of his projects are held by the secret service, far away from the eyes of the public.

    There is no “national security”, that is just an excuse. We couldn’t go around giving people free energy at the expense of those big oil companies now could we?

    The methods used in the design of the flying saucer matched the descriptions of those who claimed to have seen a from the UFO inside: with a discoidal capacitor with sufficient size to provide enough thrust to fly, – See more at: http://yournewswire.com/uncovered-teslas-patent-for-worlds-1st-flying-saucer/#sthash.ieAzpfMn.dpuf

    This is perhaps the stupidest part of a really stupid article. Do you have any idea what a capacitor is? How can one be used to provide thrust? How can any of the, let’s say, “non-rocket scientists” who claim to have been inside flying saucers judge how big a “discoidal capacitor” would be required?

    why is it written “© 1997” in the lower right corner of the picture ?
    is “freelance writer” a new synonym for hoaxer ?

    • Pete

      it says 1897 genius

      • neokobaya

        The copyright symbol © was created in 1909 moron

  • Vince

    And this was before Kenneth Arnold stated that, he saw what looked like saucers, flying and skipping across the air…coined “flying saucers”

    Tesla was a genius !

    This is a very poorly written article… Who writes this? And who is the editor of this site? Either, or preferably both, need a slap in the face.

    “Tesla filed a request to patent a peculiar aircraft, which he called “the world’s first flying saucer…” ???

    The term flying saucer was only coined when on June 24, 1947, an amateur pilot named Kenneth Arnold was flying a small plane near Mount Rainier in Washington state saw something extraordinarily strange. Directly to his left, about 20 to 25 miles north of him and at the same altitude, a chain of nine disc-shaped flying objects shot across the sky, glinting in the sun as they traveled.

    While disc-shaped flying objects have been interpreted as being sporadically recorded since the Middle Ages, this resulted in the creation of the exact term by U.S. newspapers. Although Arnold never specifically used the term “flying saucer”, he was quoted at the time saying the shape of the objects he saw was like a “saucer”, “disc”, or “pie-plate”, and several years later added he had also said “the objects moved like saucers skipping across the water.” Both the terms flying saucer and flying disc were used commonly and interchangeably in the media until the early 1950s.

    So … what is the patent number please ? it’s not listed in https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Nikola_Tesla_patents

  • punkleruckus

    Why no image of the actual patent number or something concrete? How do I even know that drawing isn’t some fan-fiction BS? Come on!
