Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) The Scientist who invented the 20th Century. The Genius who lit the world.
Nikola Tesla is best known for many revolutionary contributions in the field of electricity and magnetism that formed the basis of modern alternating current electric power (AC) systems, including the polyphase power distribution systems and the AC motor, with which he helped usher in the Second Industrial Revolution.
Contemporary biographers of Tesla have regarded him as "The Father of Physics", and "the patron saint of modern electricity."
In 1943, the Supreme Court of the United States credited him as being the inventor of the radio.
