Tesla received, upon his wireless apparatus

On the night of Dec. 7, 1900, a “fountain of light” was seen on the planet Mars. A Professor Pickering, writing in Sci. Amer., 84-179, called it ‘absolutely inexplicable.’ Lowell (Popular Astronomy, 10-187) published several of the values in a possible code of long and short flashes, recorded for seventy minutes. “Tesla announced that he had received, upon his wireless apparatus, vibrations that he attributed to the Martians. They were series of triplets.”
