Who Was The Real Dr. Nikola Tesla?

A Serbian immigrant born in 1856, Nikola Tesla was one of the most brilliant inventors of all times. He invented the way almost all of the world’s electricity is generated today. He also envisioned and created wireless communication. In 1947, the United States Supreme Court credited him as being the inventor of the radio. He also contributed in varying degrees to the fields of robotics, ballistics, computer science, nuclear physics, and theoretical physics.

Many areas of modern technology wouldn’t be possible without his incredible, visionary work.  Still, most people aren’t aware of most of his work and even less who he was. An excellent paper “Who Was The Real Dr. Nikola Tesla?” is published on the Tesla Society site. Tesla lived in New York City for more than 60 years and designed the first hydroelectric power plant in Niagara Falls, New York. There is a great Tesla museum in Belgrade, Serbia and his long-abandoned Long Island laboratory will soon become a museum. In 2013 a non-profit organization raised enough money to purchase the long-abandoned Wardenclyffe and will build a Tesla science center.
