A queer, shy smile and eyes radiating intelligence. Nikola Tesla is one of the most under rated geniuses of the century. See that light bulb shining down on you? Yeah, that was all Tesla though most facts have you believing Thomas Edison invented it. How about radios then? Nope, not Marconi. Here again its Tesla.
And Im just getting started. X-rays as well as the electricity that zig zags through the power lines surrounding your house, alternating current, all of his very own founding.
Born in a small town in Croatia in the mid-1800s, Tesla accomplished more than any many could dare dream to achieve. His genius was not one to be suppressed. His ability to solve calculus problems in his head had teachers questioning his integrity. He was well spoken in eight languages and had an eidetic memory. His father, who wanted his son to follow in his steps to priesthood, finally gave in and let Tesla get an Engineering education.
Nikola Tesla then came in to America with not much to his name except a recommendation letter. He worked with Edison, who had then claimed the title of an industrial mogul with his inventions. Differences built up and Tesla parted ways to design his legacy. While Edison was all about marketing and claiming the economic benefits of his work, Tesla was more the quiet type who focused on trying to discover easy ways to make sure energy and power could reach everyone.
He was well known for his showmanship, the Tesla coil with its dazzling arcs of electricity one of the instruments he used to draw in funds. Many of his inventions were patented by the wrong people, reaping its glory. His battles against Edison who propounded direct current in contrast to alternating current, are extraordinary. Unfortunately with the financial backing that supported Edison, Tesla came out the underdog. He lost most of his assets and was reduced to bankruptcy towards the end.
Eccentric ways enshrouded him and he spent most of his time taking care of wild pigeons in the park. He was also place under high surveillance as he talked about building death beams and other such devices that alarmed the authorities. After his death at a ripe old age, his ashes were placed in a gilded urn the shape of a sphere, his favorite geometric shape.
Now all around us we see the fruits of his magnanimous intellect at play.
