Nikola Tesla – The Pioneer who Paved the Road to the Electrical World as We Know It
June 28, 2022 @ 5:00 pm - 7:00 pm
The speaker presented a talk in 2006 at Penn State that was the 150 anniversary of the birth of Nikola Tesla, the inventor of many things that we still use today. That talk presented the history and life of Tesla who is one of the most interesting scientists and persons of all time. Many of Tesla’s most important inventions and patents will be discussed and how they changed the world as we know it now. Guglielmo Marconi is usually credited with inventing the radio, but it was shown after a long fight in 1943 that Tesla was indeed the first, and his much earlier patent proved it.
Unfortunately, Tesla’s death occurred about 6 months before the patent office corrected the history. In the talk at Penn State, many demos were performed and recorded on video. Some of these videos of the demos will be shown in various Tesla Coils including some playing music.
