Tesla’s American experience

He left Thomas Edison’s lab. He relinquished his Alternating Current (AC) royalties to Westinghouse to prevent the company from going bankrupt.

Motivated by wonder and awe, he exploited his imagination to foresee the wireless networking and cell phones we have today. “Why can’t we photograph thought?” he once asked.

Tesla was an artist working with dreams and visions but “his medium was electricity.”

'If hate could be turned into electricity, it would light up the whole world.' — Nikola Tesla Click To Tweet

Six months after his death, the US Supreme Court gave the patents for Marconi’s invention of the radio to Tesla: “Telsa, not Marconi, invented radio.”

Tesla was a magician who combined science with science fiction.
