Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) is one of the giants of human intellect. Tesla was perhaps one of the greatest inventors the world has ever known. His inventions were not for the purpose of fame and fortune but for the benefit of the whole human race. His inventions surround us, just as the air we breathe, we take it for granted. Let us not forget a true genius who propelled us single-handedly into the second industrial revolution and is almost erased from history!
