"The invention of the wheel was perhaps rather obvious; but the invention of an invisible wheel, made of nothing but a magnetic field, was far from obvious, and that is what we owe to Nikola Tesla" - Professor Reignald Kapp, 1956 Here's a task for you to try: Go check your encyclopedia to find the answers to the following questions: (common answers are given in parentheses) 1) Who invented the radio? (Marconi) 2) Who discovered X-rays? (Roentgen) 3) Who invented the vacuum tube amplifier? (de Forest) In fact, while you're at it, check to see who discovered the fluorescent bulb, neon lights, speedometer, the automobile ignition system, and the basics behind radar, electron microscope, and the microwave oven. Chances are that you will see little mention of a guy named Nikola Tesla, the most famous scientist in the world at the turn of the century. In fact, few people today have ever heard of the guy. Good old Tommy Edison made sure of that.
