A magazine interview with Nikola Tesla in his laboratory, a man often considered the most brilliant American inventor. This article presents a fascinating overview of the genius at the very peak of his illustrious career.
[Adult (non-fiction) - interview] Originally published May, 1899.
Edited by: Joel Nicholas
Nikola Tesla was born midnight of July 9-10, 1856, and died midnight of January 7-8, 1943. Tesla was a trained engineer specializing in the infant field of electricity. He was gifted with a keen sense of hearing and the ability to clearly visualize concepts in his mind. Tesla held over 110 US patents (700 worldwide), and, among other things, is personally responsible for inventing AC electricity (which is used to power the entire world today).
One does not appreciate Tesla's greatness, until you realize that at the time of this interview, people still used gas for lighting and traveled about in horse drawn buggies. Among the miracles described in this audiobook article are Nikola Tesla's inventions of hydro-electric power generation (first used at Niagara Falls), solar-electric power generation, wireless power distribution, high-voltage coils (which are used in all of our automobiles), radio communication, videophones, cold-light, wireless lighting, and an electric nitrogen fertilizing machine to help feed the world.
Chauncy Montgomery M'Govern was a writer for Pearson's Magazine, and one of only a few select persons granted access to Tesla's laboratory.
