Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) is probably the first cross-over scientist. He is known and respected in scientific and engineering circles, but he also appeals to a youthful and general audience with no formal background in science. Today there is considerable and growing interest in Tesla, but there is lacking a comprehensive and accurate picture of his life and accomplishments. A major documentary has never been made about him. Much of the available information has been highly speculative, not based on the historical documentary evidence. A great deal of the story is told in Tesla’s own words, drawing from his autobiographical and scientific writings.
In particular, the documentary sets the record straight on Tesla’s inventions and accomplishments. Tesla was a contemporary of Thomas Edison and Guglielmo Marconi, and these two men are frequently credited for Tesla’s invention of AC power transmission and radio. This program demonstrates that this is not the case.
But this is not just a dry story about circuits and capacitors. Tesla’s life is an inspiring example of the power of one man to battle against the odds and change the world with his revolutionary ideas.
This documentary is the recognition of a great and misunderstood man of science.The strength of his story, and extensive research and rare visual materials, are the ingredients for an educational, and long-lasting documentary about The Master of Lightning, Nikola Tesla.
The Genius Who Lit The World
Nikola Tesla is considered the father of our modern technological age. This program reveals the discoveries of a forgotten genius, many of which went unnoticed for nearly a century. How did this obscure visionary from what is now Yugoslavia lay the foundation for modern communication and which of his inventions were considered a little too revolutionary by government agencies and the power brokers of the time.
Among his discoveries are: fluorescent light, the laser beam, wireless communications, wireless transmission of electrical energy, remote control, robotics, Tesla’s turbines and vertical take off aircraft.
Tesla is the father of the radio and the modern electrical transmission system. Tesla registered over 700 patents worldwide. His vision included power from the sea, exploration of solar energy, the discovery of cosmic radio waves, and the use of the ionosphere for scientific purposes. He foresaw interplanetary communications and satellites.
The Missing Secrets Of Nikola Tesla
At the end of the 19th century, a race was on to power the world. Fraught with shameless incidents of divisiveness and greed, some of our most respected historical figures sounded the battle cry, among them inventor Thomas Edison and the worldly entrepreneur, J.P. Morgan.
Caught in the crossfire was arguably the greatest inventor of all time, the man responsible for harnessing Niagara Falls and the AC current that powers our homes. Nikola Tesla claimed he could provide everyone with free, unlimited energy. Could his claim have been true?
