Inevitably, Rade Serbedzija will have to do a remake of his role in the 1970′s TV series from former Yugoslavia, where he played the elderly Tesla, not without dignity and insight.

This is an excerpt from a letter by Lawrence Grant White, Stanford White’s son remembering Nikola Tesla, a frequent visitor to the White estate at Box Hill, not far from Wardenclyffe. Tesla created his own myth by telling people something like ”I never sleep” or, in an interview in 1927: “I never touched a woman”. Maybe the latter is quite right. Tesla did not sleep very much though.
The illustration on the left shows a modern rendering of the whereabouts of the electron circulating the core of an atom. In the middle is Nikola Tesla’s letterhead; the picture on the right shows M101, a beautiful galaxy. When Tesla created his letterhead, the atom as well as spiral galaxies were unknown of. See?
