Transcript of Nikola Tesla
TESLA'S LIFE PT.2
EVERYBODY HATES TESLA
BORN JULY, 1OTH 1856 IN CROATIA.
STUDIED AT THE REALSCHULE, KARLSTADT IN 1837
AT FIRST HE WANTED TO SPECIALIZE IN PHYSICS AND MATHEMATICS-ELEC.
1881 HAD THE IDEA OF THE INDUCTION MOTOR
TESLA WAS OBSESSED WITH THE NUMBER 3 AND CLEANED HIS DINING UTENSILS TO PERFECTION.
HE HATED PEARLS. HE HATED THEM SO MUCH
THAT HE RESUED TO SPEAK TO ANY WOMAN
WHO WORE THEM.
NO ONE WAS INTERESTED IN HIS INVENTIONS SO HE WENT TO AMERICA, WORKED FOR EDISON. EDISON DISMISSED TESLA CALLING HIS INVENTIONS "IMPRACTICAL" AND HAD HIM DIG DITCHES. TESLA LEFT.
EDISON AND TESLA DISAGREED WITH DIRECT CURRENT VS. ALTERNATING CURRENT
IN HIS LATER YEARS, TESLA WAS VERY FOND OF CARING FOR PIGEONS. HE EVENTUALLY
FELL IN LOVE WITH ONE ONCE SAYING I loved that pigeon as a man loves a woman, and she loved me. As long as I had her, there was a purpose to my life." btw he was celibate his entire life.
THE CURRENT WARS
EDISON'S DIRECT CURRENT POWERHOUSES WERE INEFFECTIVE TO TESLA BECAUSE THEY COULD ONLY SUPPLY A DIRECT CURRENT WITHIN TWO MILES
TESLAS ALTERNATING CURRENT CHANGES DIRECTION 50-60 TIMES AND CAN TRAVEL GREATER DISTANCES
EDISON DIDN'T WANT TO SWITCH TO ALTERNATING CURRENT BECAUSE OF HIS INVESTMENT IN DIRECT CURRENT
THE TESLA COIL
THE TESLA COIL IS THE INVENTION TESLA IS MOST FAMOUS FOR
TESLA WANTED TO TRANSMIT ELECTRICAL POWER WITH OUT USING WIRES
HE THOUGHT IF HE BUILT A BIG ENOUGH TESLA COIL HE COULD IONIZE THE EARTHS ATMOSPHERE' ALLOWING IT TO CONDUCT ELECTRICITY
LATER HE FOUND THAT IT WOULD'NT WORK
THE TESLA COIL WAS USED AS A POWER SUPPLY FOR X-RAY MACHINES, ELECTRON MICROSCOPES, PARTICLE ACCELERATORS, AND RADIO TRANMITTERS
TESLA WAS AN AMAZING INVENTOR, BUT BEING AS SMART AND SPECIAL AS HE WAS, HE DEVELOPED MANY ENEMIES AND FALSE FRIENDS. MARCONI, CREDITED WITH THE RADIO ACTUALLY STOLE THE INVENTION FROM TESLA. TESLA LOST THE SUIT BECAUSE OF WORLD WAR 1. AFTER THE WAR HE HAD MUCH MORE DIFFICULTIES SUEING AND EVENTUALLY DIED. THE SUPREMEM COURT AGREED THAT TESLAS PATENTS FOR THE RADIO PRECEDED MARCONIS, BUT HISTORY BOOKS STILL REMEMBER MARCONI. MANY BIG BUISNESSES DIDNT WANT TELAS IDEAS OF FREE ENERGY TO SURFACE. ALSO AFTER DEATH, THE GOVERNMENT SEIZED MANY OF HIS PAPERS.
