The Legend who was not Acknowledged…!
NIKOLA TESLA
Ere many generations pass, our
machinery will be driven by a
power obtainable at any point of
the universe. Throughout space
there is energy. -- Nikola Tesla,
1892
Nikola Tesla
Born on 10 July 1856 was a Serbian American
inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical
engineer, physicist, and futurist best known
for his contributions to the design of the
modern alternating current (AC) electricity
supply system.
Early Life
 Tesla studied at the Realschule, Karlstadt in
1873, the Polytechnic Institute in Graz,
Austria.
 He began his career as an electrical engineer
with a telephone company in Budapest in
1881.
Working For Edison
In 1882, Tesla began working for the Continental
Edison Company in France, designing and making
improvements to electrical equipment. In June
1884, Tesla relocated to New York City. During his
trip across the Atlantic, his ticket, money, and
some of his luggage were stolen, and he was nearly
thrown overboard after a mutiny broke out on the
ship. He arrived with only four cents in his pocket,
a letter of recommendation, a few poems, and the
remainder of his belongings.
But could the trials of time maul him down??
In 1885, Tesla claimed that he could redesign
Edison's inefficient motor and generators,
making an improvement in both service and
economy. According to Tesla, Edison
remarked, "There's fifty thousand dollars in it
for you—if you can do it"
The world had not always been just to him……..
After months of work, Tesla fulfilled the task and
inquired about payment. Edison, claiming that he
was only joking, replied, "Tesla, you don't
understand our American humor." Instead,
Edison offered a US$10 a week raise over Tesla's
US$18 per week salary; Tesla refused the offer and
immediately resigned, just to land up launching
his own venture, Tesla Electric Light &
Manufacturing in 1886.
He was undoubtedly persecuted by the energy
power brokers of his day -- namely Thomas
Edison, whom we are taught in school to revere
as a genius. He was also attacked by J.P.
Morgan and other "captains of industry." Upon
Tesla's death on January 7th, 1943, the U.S.
government moved into his lab and apartment
confiscating all of his scientific research.
ACHIEVEMENTS
Let's take a look at what Nikola Tesla -- a man
who died broke and alone -- has actually given
to the world. For better or worse, with credit or
without, he changed the face of the planet in
ways that perhaps no man ever has.
Alternating current The DC current that
Edison had been working on produced dangerous
sparking from the required converter. Regardless,
Edison and his backers utilized the general
"dangers" of electric current to instill fear in
Tesla's alternative:
Alternating Current. Tesla responded by
demonstrating that AC was perfectly safe by
famously shooting current through his own body
to produce light.
Light Of course he didn't invent light itself,
but he did invent how light can be harnessed
and distributed. Tesla developed and used
florescent bulbs in his lab some 40 years before
industry "invented" them.
Radio Guglielmo Marconi was initially
credited, and most believe him to be the
inventor of radio to this day. However, the
Supreme Court overturned Marconi's patent in
1943, when it was proven that Tesla invented
the radio years previous to Marconi. Radio
signals are just another frequency that needs a
transmitter and receiver, which Tesla also
demonstrated in 1893 during a presentation
before The National Electric Light Association.
Remote Control This invention was a
natural outcropping of radio. Patent No.
613809 was the first remote controlled model
boat, demonstrated in 1898.
Induction Motor Tesla's invention of the
electric motor has finally been popularized by a
car brandishing his name. This invention has
fundamentally changed the landscape of what
we now take for granted: industrial fans,
household appliances, water pumps, machine
tools, power tools, disk drives, electric
wristwatches and compressors.
Death
 On 7 January 1943, Tesla, 86, died alone in
room 3327 of the New Yorker Hotel.
 Assistant medical examiner H.W. Wembly
examined the body and ruled that the cause
of death had been coronary thrombosis.
 Two days later, the FBI ordered the Alien
Property Custodian to seize Tesla's
belongings, even though Tesla was an
American citizen.
Conclusion
NIKOLA TESLA One of the highest minds ever
born on this earth…….
The man who lit the world, energized it and
helped automate it.
Nikola Tesla
