News Coverage of Nikola Tesla's 150th Birthday

Stories from around the world by various news agencies, celebrating one of the most brilliant scientists who ever lived. Celebrated as the father of the 20th century, with his AC power and radio, he is also the father of free energy -- a probable foundation of the 21st century.

Preface comments by Sterling D. Allan

On July 10, 1856, Nikola Tesla was born in Croatia.

Coming to the U.S. as a young adult, he made his mark on the world not just as the "inventor of the 20th century," bringing AC power and radio, but is recognized by many as the "father of free energy".  The later is yet to be fully realized in daily application; but once implemented is likely to carry the 21st century as fundamentally as AC power and radio carried the 20th.

Tesla was so ahead of his time that his own generation marginalized him, usually relegating the strange fellow to footnotes rather than headlines of history texts.

Now, one hundred and fifty years later, his legacy is beginning to emerge into mainstream awareness and appreciation.  The following is a historic snapshot of various News Agencies' coverage of the 150th anniversary of his birth.

As of July 12, 2006, at 9:00 am MST, there were 163 stories from around the world about Nikola Tesla logged by Google News.  A good number of those are due to the new electric car company by that name in Silicon Valley. (Ref.)  The following stories pertain to the anniversary.

  • Croatia Marks 150th Anniversary of Inventor's Birth - Croatia marked Monday the 150th anniversary of the birth of Nikola Tesla, one of the pioneers of modern electrical engineering, who won fame in the United States as one of the world's greatest inventors. (PhysOrg; July 11)
  • Tesla born 150 years ago - 10 July 2006 marks what would be the 150th birthday of the great inventor Nikola Tesla. For those who could make it, Tesla is immortalized as a statue at Niagara, New York depicting the master of lighting; a Nikola Tesla Museum in Belgrade, Serbia; and he is featured on the Serbian 100 dinar banknote. For those who cannot reach such exotic locales, later this year a movie by Christopher Nolan (who really should be working on a follow up to "Batman Begins") will depict David Bowie as the good Mr Tesla. Tesla invented radio and alternating current, set the world's record for man-made lightning and could make the pigeons of Central Park do his bidding. (; July 11)

"It is harder to crack a prejudice than an atom." // "I'd rather be an optimist and a fool than a pessimist and right." -- Albert Einstein

ADVISORY: With any technology, you take a high risk to invest significant time or money unless (1) independent testing has thoroughly corroborated the technology, (2) the group involved has intellectual rights to the technology, and (3) the group has the ability to make a success of the endeavor.
All truth passes through three stages:
   First, it is ridiculed;
   Second, it is violently opposed; and
   Third, it is accepted as self-evident.

-- Arthur Schopenhauer (1788-1860)

    "When you're one step ahead
of the crowd you're a genius.
When you're two steps ahead,
you're a crackpot."
