And he brings toys to all the children of the world, all at once and wherever they may be.
His greatest gift. Alternating Current. Power to the masses.
His greatest gift: 3 phases.
He was a genius, but, unfortunately, he died penniless for failing to protect his ideas. His arrogant personality didn’t help.
I’m inspired by lives of heroism and genius, but its hard to think of following in Telsa’s footsteps.Telsa did die penniless, but I don’t think he died unhappy or with any regrets.
Tesla was right about AC over DC in power transmission. I think Edison must have not been as smart since he didn’t figure this out. I think in general Edison learned a lot from experimentation and Tesla figured it out with physics; maybe this is why Edison was so stuck on DC.
Edison got most of the credit for Tesla’s work. Edison stole a lot of them, and patented them before Tesla could. Edison got credit for work he never did.. Edison was a genius tho, but not as much as he was given credit for.
