The scoop: Tesla is probably the most famous and influential inventor/scientist you never heard of.
A few things Tesla did:
- In 1904, Tesla invented an efficient bladeless turbine.
- Tesla proposed electric power generation through geothermal, solar and wind energy.
- Tesla speculated on the existence of the ionosphere years before we discovered it.
Bottom line: Tesla imagined the world in many ways more like a philosopher than a scientist. But his scientific mind was as infallible as any. One thing is for sure: the modern world would be far behind without Nikola Tesla.
