Tesla | Many of us have heard about Einstein or Edison, but few can say they have knowledge about Nikola Tesla, one of the brightest scientists of all time. He is the most productive inventor of the 20th century, with over 700 recognized international patents.
The profound knowledge of the technological world and its revolutionary ideas have transformed a Serbian from an anonymous into a celebrity of world rank.
As for his life, it can be said that this was an unpredictable series of failures and tragedies.
We can say that he is an eccentric genius, the prophet who announces the electricity, although no one believed in these predictions, the announcer of a new civilization.
The Tesla genius was a man out of print.for example, he never had a home because he preferred the comforts of the hotels.
Also does not bear the feminine presence, saying she suffers from a strange phobia with ladies. The scientist who slept just 4 hours a day discovered the alternate current, completed the dynamite project, discovered the electromagnetic waves before Heinrich Hertz, although the name of the frequency measurement unit was reserved for the latter.
Nikola Tesla was born on July 10, 1856, in the village of Smilyan, Austria-Hungary. He got his baccalaureate, completing his studies in electrical engineering at the Technical University of Graz. He studied philosophy later in Prague.
Tesla’s greatest discovery is the alternate current. However, it is not the only major discovery of the scholar. Based on the rotation of magnetic fields, Tesla developed a variety of devices, which it patents in early 1888.
In those times, the US electricity industry is growing rapidly, and Tesla sees the opportunity to apply a series of revolutionary ideas to this space.
Therefore, he decides to cross the Atlantic and goes to America at the invitation of Thomas Edison, which he breaks quickly, backing his ideas about the alternate current, with which Edison disagreed. His life changes radically in a short time.
Tesla, together with a friend, founded his own company inventing the electric motor and the first fluorescent lamp in the world. All the brilliant inventions were the fruit of one’s own mind.
Even today, in the era of super-technology, some of his ideas are impossible to recreate. After falling into the dislike of American scientists, continue to work only for him or exclusively on the orders of large companies.
The scientist seems to be one of the most unjust scientists in history. Tesla’s ideas are mistakenly attributed to others.
For example, he set up the electromagnetic wave propagation system and, despite Marconi’s claims, Tesla was the one who developed the idea of radio as we know it today.
Working with radio waves, he creates the Tesla coil, which generates this form of energy and receives information.
However, many people still credit Marconi as the creator of the radio, despite the US Supreme Court’s award that granted Nikola Tesla’s patent.
Alternating current electrical systems are almost exclusively linked to Edison’s name, but Nikola Tesla’s name has been set where many connoisseurs of the phenomenon need to know.
Like any scientist, Tesla had progressive ideas about the world, and in his interviews with him over time, talks about radio and television development, robotics, computers, faxing, the microwave and many other things. In the years in which he made these predictions, he was often regarded as an eccentric madman.
Although many of his ideas are found and are being exploited, he is not himself, but others have gained from them.
The electric motor discovered by Tesla was bought by the company “Westinghouse”, which earns billions of dollars from its sale.
In 1933, in a project funded by General Motors, it is said that the Serbian would have created the air-powered electric car. Seven witnesses would have seen the car moving with 140kmh.
After this demonstration, the project was abandoned by the American company, being forgotten. Many of Tesla’s projects are kept secret or disappear mysteriously after his death.
Today no one denied that Tesla was an unusual man. He learned not only of the energy problems of this planet but also on the whole universe for years studying the Sun and other sources of natural light.
It is said that he tried to capture the cosmic energy and to connect with other dimensions in the Universe.
Tesla predicted that patients would be treated with electricity and talked about the appearance of the electric furnace and the electron microscope.
Many of his inventions are not patented and have not even been sketched out of them.
Of the few pictures of the scholar, he seems to be a common man.
At the same time, many of his contemporaries attributed him to demonic features: glowing black eyes, black hair like a raven, and a killing look.
Tesla had a series of phobias: he was a microfob, he never stood in a hotel room or floor whose number is divisible by three. He also had a strong phobia against pearl earrings.
Although he was courted and even worshipped by the ladies of the high society, he was horrified at the thought of being touched by them. He himself claimed in front of Mark Twain and other close friends that he feels alone, but cannot overcome this phobia.
Always wear expensive costumes. He frequently received invitations to festive parties but said they were not to his liking. He liked total privacy.
He wrote poems and spoke eight foreign languages.he always lived in the hotel, but the housekeepers here had to change the 18 towels of his room every day, and the waiters always changed the ordered food because Tesla claimed it was full of flies.
In his diary, Nikola Tesla writes that the child still has strange reactions to different objects or fruits.when he saw pearls, he had convulsions, the peach flavour caused her fever, and a piece of paper floating in the water made her taste unpleasant in her mouth.
The life of the great scholar was stormy, but his death was easy. On the morning of January 7, 1943, the employees of the hotel in which they lived in the bed found the breathless body of the 86-year-old man, the man who once astonished the world by his own way of thinking.
Tesla was not married and had no children. He had a nephew, son of a sister, Sasha Kosanovici, Serbian diplomat. In 1957, the ashes of the great genius were brought from America to Belgrade, exposed to the Tesla Museum in the Serbian capital, founded by his nephew in memory of his uncle.
