Nikola Tesla was born on July 10, 1856, in what is now Smiljan, Croatia. Tesla was interested in electrical inventions.
In 1884 Nicola Tesla arrived the United States with little more than the clothes on his back and a letter of introduction to famed inventor and business mogul Thomas Edison. Edison hired Tesla as a secretary and the two men were soon working tirelessly alongside each other, making improvements to Edison’s inventions. While Edison was a power figure who focused on marketing and financial success, Tesla was commercially out-of-tune and somewhat vulnerable.
n he was able to find interest in his AC electrical system and funding for his new Tesla Electric Company. Setting straight to work, by the end of the year, Tesla had successfully filed several patents for AC-based inventions.
Nicola Tesla’s AC system eventually caught the attention.Nicola Tesla discovered, designed and developed ideas for a number of other important inventions—most of which were officially patented by other inventors—including dynamos (electrical generators similar to batteries) and the induction motor. He also discovered radar technology, X-ray technology, remote control and the rotating magnetic field—the basis of most AC machinery.
Innovation runs in Tesla’s blood. He once wrote: “My mother was an inventor of the first order and would, I believe, have achieved great things had she not been so remote from modern life and its multi fold opportunities. She invented and constructed all kinds of tools and devices and wove the finest designs from thread which was spun by her.”
Being curious about wireless transmission of energy, Nikola set to work on his boldest project to build a global, wireless communication system to be transmitted through a large electrical tower for sharing information and providing free electricity throughout the world.
Nicola Tesla may have had a brilliant mind, but he was not as good at reducing his ideas to practice . In the race to develop transatlantic radio, Tesla described to J.P. Morgan, a new means of instant communication that involved gathering stock quotes and telegram messages, funneling them to his laboratory, where he would encode them and assign them each a new frequency. That frequency would be broadcast to a device that would fit in hand.
Tesla designed the first hydroelectric power plant in Niagara Falls, New York, harnessing the power of the waterfalls he had marveled at since childhood. Construction took three years and power first flowed to homes in nearby Buffalo on Nov. 16, 1896. A statue of Tesla on Goat Island overlooks the falls today.
“Teslas,” a unit used to measure the strength of magnetic fields, are named after Tesla. Another namesake is Tesla Motors, the electric car start-up, in homage to Tesla’s role in the invention of the electric motor.
Nicola Tesla was the one who claimed to have a talk with the outerspace species. Ones when he was working alone in his laboratory he noticed some disturbances which made him aware of the signals that were passing to earth that were not usual but different than the other electromagnetic waves.However that was not accepted by the other scientists
His great inventions have helped us to improve technology.His contribution to the world can never be forgotten.
