NIKOLA TESLA / SCIENTIST WHO INVENTED 20th CENTURY
JULY 10, 1856 TO JANUARY 7, 1943
In June 1943 US Supreme Court ruled on radio patents controversy and the judgement is as follows. Pioneering of
radio belongs to Nikola Tesla, improvements of the patents to produce first commercial radio to Sir Oliver Lodge, and first trans Atlantic radio transmission to Guglielmo Marconi. To its own request, Marconi filed a lawsuit against US Navy and Government for infringing his patents which led to the throughout investigation ending up in the US Supreme Court
decision to deem Marconi’s patents for Radio pioneering invalid. Guglielmo Marconi infringed 17 of Tesla patents and Sir Oliver Lodge improvements of Tesla Patents leading up to the production of first commercial radio.
As an old man Tesla was left almost bankrupt and alone living as a semi recluse in his Hotel. His last years were spent in a room 3327 of New Yorker Hotel... Sad.... Confused.... Destitute. Frail, lonely and still mourning death of one of his beloved pigeons this extraordinary genius knew that his life's work is done and he laid back on his bead to die.... It will be three days before anyone found his body....
Edison went to become an American hero and his company would take a part of General Electric, even today one of the biggest multinational Corporations. In January of 1943, the story of Nikola Tesla was coming to an end but looking out across the Manhattan skylines for the very last time he saw a sky lit up by twinkling lights and millions of lives transformed by his genius... He saw … HIS WORLD!
Nikola Tesla was born in a stroke of midnight during the electrical storm on July 10th, 1856. He was born of Serbian parents, father Milutin Tesla who was a Serbian Ortodox Church Priest and mother Djuka (Mandic) Tesla who was self thought inventor of home appliances.
To be historically precise, Nikola Tesla was born in the village of Smiljan, Lika which was at that time a part of Austria
(Austro-Hungarian Empire), today that area is known as a state of Croatia. He came to the United states with Austrian passport, became US Citizen, spent whole his life and died in the United States. Tesla’s biography is well known, so we will present him in slightly different manner, with his achievements.
Electricity is one of nature's greatest forces and by the end of 20th Century we have harnessed it to light and power our modern world. Hundreds of years of scientific discoveries and inventions brought us here but it would take the eccentric genius of one man to unlock the full potential of electrical power.
In the winter of 1943 Nikola Tesla looked out across Manhattan's
skyline for the very last time. Tesla had been born into the world powered by steam and lit by gas but before his eyes he saw a new world, a world transformed, a world powered by electricity ...... HIS WORLD!
The war of the currents has been won by Westinghouse and Tesla. In 1895 new power station was completed at Niagara Falls using Westinghouse AC generators to produce Tesla's Polyphase Currents. Finally, huge amounts of power could be transmitted from the falls to nearby Buffalo and then a few yeas later the Niagara Plant was producing the power to the New York City itself and today almost all the electricity generated in the world is done so using Tesla System.
Nikola Tesla Museum in Belgrade / Serbia is the UNESCO protected institution that safeguards all documents and original items that once belonged to Nikola Tesla.
Museum is very essential in our exhibit designs as it provides documentation from Tesla Archives necessary for technically accurate exhibit designs and manufacturing.
We are a group of Engineers, Craftsmen and Artisans specializing in design and reconstruction of, Nikola Tesla, MIlutin Milankovic and Michael (Mihajlo) Pupin patents, electro-mechanical functional models and graphical art for Museums, Historical Institutions and serious collectors.
