Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) invented the AC (alternating current) system and the radio. His ‘world system’ anticipated our modern global network, like the Internet. Tesla’s life is like a thriller about science, money and power – he’s a character of worldwide significance to be rediscovered.

The presentation is based on the book “How Nikola Tesla Invented the 20th Century”. The biography tells the story of Tesla’s life and analyses his impact on the development of our modern world. Tesla’s significance is derived from well-researched facts, without speculative or conspiracy theories. His story is told as a fascinating mix of ingenious inventiveness and narcissistic hubris against the background of the birth of modernity. Myths and facts are separated to paint the picture of Nikola Tesla as the intellectual founding father of our modern world.

  2. It is disgraceful that the NPL should associate itself with the name of this notorious crackpot. Engineers, especially electrical engineers, may worship Tesla but they are ‘working with tainted data’: they would be hard put to find an historian of science who would agree with the usual ‘populist’ accounts of Tesla’s ‘achievements’.

  3. Hi David,

    the NPL staff was quite amazed about the presentation. If you look at the real stuff like Tesla’s inventions and his impact of modern society, one would recognize greatness. See my ebook at amazon.com “All About Tesla – How Nikola tesla Invented the 20th Century. Enjoy!
