Will Tesla’s battery factory affect the grid? Of course, but it’s a lot nuanced.


In fact, you re at it, check to see who discovered the fluorescent neon lights, speedometer, the ignition system, and the basics radar, electron microscope, and the oven.

Chances are that you see little mention of a guy named Tesla, the most famous in the world at the turn of the century.

In few people today have heard of the guy. Good old Edison made sure of

After all, Tesla was an eccentric who talked of death that could destroy airplanes at a distance of 250 miles, to be able split the Earth in believed that both and image could be transmitted the air (in the late 1800 s), and essentially Edison to take his DC electrical and stick it you know where.

In words, anyone that has heard of Tesla probably him to be a first class wacko.

the times are a changin .

The problem is Tesla probably could do all things that he claimed possible. In fact, Tesla every single one of the items above (but gets no and much more. Look you and chances are Tesla is somehow for most of the things that modern life so modern.

No doubt about it, Nikola is the greatest mind since da

So who is this genius?

Little Tesla was born in Smijlan, way back in 1856. He had an extraordinary and spoke six languages. He spent years at the Polytechnic Institute at studying math, physics, and

What made Tesla however, was his amazing understanding of Remember that this was a when electricity was still in its The lightbulb hadn t even invented yet.

When first came to the United in 1884, he worked for Thomas Edison had just patented the so he needed a system to distribute

Edison had all sorts of problems his DC system of electricity. He promised big bucks in bonuses if he could get the out of the system. Tesla ended up Edison over $100,000 of $$$ by today s standards), but Edison to live up to his end of the bargain.

Tesla and Edison spent the rest of his trying to squash Tesla s (and the main reason is unknown today).

Tesla a better system for electrical the AC (alternating current) system we use in our homes today. AC offered advantages over the DC system. By Tesla s newly developed AC voltages could be stepped up and over long distances thin wires.

DC could not a large power plant square mile while through very thick

Of course, a system of transmission be incomplete without devices to run on So, he invented the motors that are in every appliance in your This was no simple achievement of the late 1800 s were that no motor could be for an alternating current system, the use of AC a waste of time. After if the current reverses direction 60 a second, the motor will back and forth and never get

Tesla solved this easily and proved everyone

He was using fluorescent bulbs in his lab forty years before invented them. At World s and similar exhibitions, he took tubes and molded them the shapes of famous scientists the first neon signs we see all around us today. I almost Tesla designed the world s hydroelectric plant, located in Falls.

He also patented the speedometer for cars.

Word to spread about his AC system and it reached the ears of one George

Tesla signed a contract Westinghouse under which he receive $2.50 for each of AC electricity sold.

Suddenly, had the cash to start conducting all the he ever dreamed of.

But Edison had too money invested in his DC system, so did his best to discredit Tesla every turn. Edison tried to show that AC was far more dangerous than his DC

Tesla counteracted by staging his own campaign. At the 1893 World in Chicago (attended by 21 million he demonstrated how safe AC electricity was by high frequency AC power his body to power light He then was able to shoot lightning bolts from his coils to the crowd without

Nice trick!

When the owed to Tesla started to $1 million, Westinghouse ran into trouble. Tesla realized if his contract remained in effect, would be out of business and he had no desire to with the creditors. His dream was to cheap AC electric available to all Tesla took his contract and it up!

Instead of becoming the world s billionaire, he was paid $216,600 for his patents.

In 1898, he demonstrated to the the first remote controlled boat at Madison Square So you can thank Tesla for the invention of remote controlled planes, and boats (and televisions!),

Tesla had a dream of providing energy to the world. In 1900, by $150,000 from financier Morgan, Tesla began of his so called Wireless Broadcasting tower on Long Island, New This broadcasting tower was to link the world s telephone and services, as well as transmit stock reports, and weather worldwide.

Unfortunately, Morgan cut when he realized that it FREE energy for the world.

stories claim that the U. S. destroyed the tower during War One for fear that the German spies would use the tower as a to navigate by. In reality, Tesla ran financial trouble after cut funding for the project and the tower was for scrap to pay off creditors.

The world he was nuts after all, of voice, picture, and electricity was of at this time.

What they didn t was that Tesla had already the principles behind radio ten years before Marconi s invention. In fact, in 1943 year Tesla died), the Court ruled that s patents were invalid due to s previous descriptions. Still, references do not credit Tesla the invention of radio. (Sidenote: s radio did not transmit voices it a signal something Tesla had years before.)

At this the press started to exaggerate s claims.

Tesla reported he had received radio signals Mars and Venus. Today we that he was actually receiving the from distant stars, but too was known about the universe at time. Instead, the press had a day with his outrageous claims.

In his lab, Tesla made the into an electric tuning He managed to get a steam-driven oscillator to at the same frequency as the ground him (like Ella Fitzgerald the glass with her voice in old Memorex commercials).

The result? An on all the surrounding city blocks. The trembled, the windows broke, and the fell off the walls.

Tesla that, in theory, the same could be used to destroy the State Building or even split the Earth in two. had accurately determined the resonant of the Earth almost 60 years science could confirm his

Don t think he didn t attempt like splitting the Earth (well, sort of).

In his Springs lab in 1899, he sent of energy all the way through the Earth, them to bounce back to the (providing the theory for today s earthquake seismic stations). the waves came back, he more electricity to it.

The result? The largest man-made bolt ever recorded 130 a world s record still

The accompanying thunder was heard 22 away. The entire meadow his lab had a strange blue glow, to that of St. Elmo s Fire.

this was only a warm-up for his experiment! Unfortunately, he blew out the power plant s equipment and he was able to repeat the experiment.

At the of World War I, the government desperately for a way to detect German submarines. The put Thomas Edison in charge of the for a good method. Tesla the use of energy waves what we today as radar to detect ships.

Edison rejected s idea as ludicrous and the world had to another 25 years until it was

His reward for a lifetime of creativity? The (to everyone but Tesla) Edison A real slap in the face all the verbal abuse Tesla from Edison.

The stories go on and on.

s attempt (obviously very to purge him from the scientific had driven him into exile for twenty years. Lacking he was forced to place his untested into countless notebooks.

The man who the modern world died penniless at age 86 on January 7, 1943. than two thousand people his funeral.

In his lifetime, Tesla over 800 different patents. He would have exceeded s record number if he wasn t broke he could afford few patent applications during the thirty years of his life.

Unlike Edison, Tesla was an thinker whose ideas had no precedent in science. Unfortunately, the does not financially reward of Tesla s originality. We only those that take concepts and turn them a refined, useful product.

today continue to scour his notes. Many of his far flung are just now being proven by our top For example, the Tesla bladeless turbine engine that he when coupled with materials, is proving to be among the efficient motors ever His 1901 patented experiments cryogenic liquids and electricity the foundation for modern superconductors.

He about experiments that particles with fractional of an electron something that in 1977 finally discovered


Maybe now, will finally recognize a genius when it sees
