I've been watching a series on Nicolas Tesla on the Science Channel and there is much I never realized about this man. The more I hear and learn the more I'm impressed beyond the measure of this man's intellect and knowledge as well as his ideas and projects. I also never realized what likelihood there was that Tesla was actually murdered, potentially for some of his ideas or projects.
The particular series on Tesla that is currently running on the Science channel concentrates on Tesla's idea of a "Death Ray" but some of his inventions or ideas that interest me is his idea of wireless, free, transmission of electricity. Having spent much of my life in the work and study of Electronics and Electricity I feel I should have known more about this man and his ideas. I also know the nuances involved with Electronics and how even though it is much-established, accepted, knowledge with electronics they still call it "Theory" when referring to it and teaching it.
As I learn more about Tesla the more I wonder just where we would be today if he was able to live longer and had the ability to explore more of his ideas and theories, sadly he was eccentric enough and crazy enough that many of his supporters and backers were reluctant to continue to support him and his source of funding dried up fast restricting him from diving further into many of his theories, ideas, and studies. So Tesla will continue to be a mystery and an anomaly of a person and a debatable genius of an inventor.
