World Changing Scientist ? Nikola Tesla (?????? ??????) Biography - Life Story - Tesla Vs Edison
8 Things You Didnt Know About Nikola Tesla
Born and raised in the Austrian Empire, Tesla studied engineering and physics in the s without receiving a degree, and gained practical experience in the early s working in telephony and at Continental Edison in the new electric power industry. He emigrated in to the United States, where he would become a naturalized citizen. With the help of partners to finance and market his ideas, Tesla set up laboratories and companies in New York to develop a range of electrical and mechanical devices. His alternating current AC induction motor and related polyphase AC patents, licensed by Westinghouse Electric in , earned him a considerable amount of money and became the cornerstone of the polyphase system which that company would eventually market. He also built a wireless-controlled boat, one of the first ever exhibited. Tesla became well known as an inventor and would demonstrate his achievements to celebrities and wealthy patrons at his lab, and was noted for his showmanship at public lectures.
The match for each, of course, is Tesla. Most people have heard his name, but few know much about his place in modern science and technology. During his teen years, he fell seriously ill, recovering once his father abandoned his demand that Nikola become a priest and agreed he could attend engineering school instead. Wishing to meet Edison himself, Tesla immigrated to the U. Having achieved the feat, Tesla said he was then told that the offer had just been a joke, and he left the company after six months.
Nikola Tesla was an engineer and scientist known for designing the alternating-current AC electric system, which is the predominant electrical system used across the world today. He also created the "Tesla coil," which is still used in radio technology. Born in modern-day Croatia, Tesla came to the United States in and briefly worked with Thomas Edison before the two parted ways. He sold several patent rights, including those to his AC machinery, to George Westinghouse. Tesla was one of five children, including siblings Dane, Angelina, Milka and Marica.
Nikola Tesla 10 July 7 January born in Smiljan, was a Serbian  inventor , electrical engineer , mechanical engineer and physicist. He is best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current AC electricity supply system.

A portrait of famed inventor Nikola Tesla at age Wikimedia Commons public domain July 10 is the birthday of Nikola Tesla, who would have been years old today. It's a good time to celebrate the life of the Serbian-American engineer and physicist: Without Tesla, you might not be able to affordably power your home, let alone read this sentence. Tesla filed more than patents during his 86 years of life, and his inventions helped pave the way for alternating current AC , electric motors, radios, fluorescent lights, lasers, and remote controls, among many other things. Some of his ideas later in life, however, seem strange even now. He once described plans for a death ray, for example, and alluded to another idea for an impenetrable "wall of force" to block and destroy foreign invasions.
He also developed the three-phase system of electric power transmission. He immigrated to the United States in and sold the patent rights to his system of alternating-current dynamos, transformers, and motors to George Westinghouse. In he invented the Tesla coil , an induction coil widely used in radio technology. Tesla developed the alternating-current power system that provides electricity for homes and buildings. He also pioneered the field of radio communication and was granted more than U. As a boy, Tesla was often sick, but he was a bright student with a photographic memory.
