Good thought. Tesla must have seemed like a mad scientist to some.
Shouldn't be different than seeing it now for most. The Faraday cage tesla coil combo would have been a sight to behold
@DigMe Hah, imagine the confusion running through them if they realized that he was a dropout! "Is this even science?!"
@m17xr2b The cage definitely adds a lot to it!
I think it would've been like "deer in headlights," just frozen in fear and awe. The power of god is pouring out of a strange tower in a metal cage. Even for those educated on it, I think it would be a big shock!
We hear SpaceX rocket testing all the time around here but I remember the very first time I ever heard (and felt) it standing out on my front porch in awe just pondering the level of energy that has been harnessed by man.
