Viktor Schauberger

June 30, 1885 - September 25, 1958


Viktor Schauberger was an Austrian inventor and naturalist who built and patented a water ram pump involving a spiral flow which he claimed to have learned from a visit to the Egyptian pyramid. Schauberger is considered the father of implosion technology. Many of his inventions are based on his study of fluidic vortexes


Viktor Schauberger - Biography

Viktor Schauberger was born in Holzschlag, Austria in 1885. Growing up in a family of forest workers led Schauberger to study the physics of the forest. He researched water flow and other natural phenomena.

Beginning in 1929, Schauberger began patenting inventions based on water engineering. Schauberger built a water turbine to produce hydroelectricity.

During World War II, Schauberger was forced by the German SS to continue his research into vortex technology to aid in the design of German planes and even a type of flying saucer (the Repulsin). The stress led to his mental breakdown and hospitalization. After the war, Viktor Schauberger continued his research on vortex technology and invented water-power turbines.

In 1958, at the age of seventy-three, Viktor Schauberger died in Linz, Austria.
