There was movie today about Nikola Tesla. Truly, he was great. Centuries in front of his time. Giver of light and hope of free energy for all mankind.
But, as many times, again and again, I am fascinated by the fact that he, with the reason, refused to accept Nobel prize, at a time when himself was in great financial troubles. He had backbone. Marconi stolen his invention of radio, while Edison- school example of greedy Anglo, for selfish reasons gave pain to Tesla. Then, they wanted to buy him with the Nobel prize and Tesla refused. Didn`t want to share it with small-minded Edison. By that, punished Nobel prize for eternity, exposed its corruption, degraded it and literally destroyed it as credible institution. For greatest refused to accept Nobel prize.Nikola Tesla, born in Smiljan- village of my ancestors, where in WWII people was by Croatian ustashe forced in houses and then houses were burned. While fire encircled houses tanks pushed the walls to add to the suffering of villagers. After the bloody orgie, even bases of houses were removed so that no trace of village remain
If there was no Serbian Tesla and his inventions and scientific theories, USA would never become real industrial super-power. Actually, there won`t be modern world without him. Indeed, by Smitsonian, one of 10 most important humans that ever walked the Earth.
One of interesting Tesla`s inventions is his `Musical coil`Singing Tesla coil
