Nikola Tesla is one of my favorite historical figures. As the world remembers who he was, more and more information about his life is surfacing. He was almost forgotten to time and history. I’m happy people, not just me, are making an effort to remember him. There was a great show on the History Channel where a few scientists search for Tesla’s missing trunks and documents titled The Tesla Files. Happy Birthday Nikola Tesla!
