Mad scientist, forward thinking genius, and so many more words could describe Nikola Tesla. Much of what the world knows and thinks about electricity is due to Tesla. His fans are legion, many making the trip to Colorado Springs to walk where he walked, see the mountain that played a role in his work. Although he died in obscurity and poverty, Tesla is now known and revered by so many. Perhaps the Tesla Coil is one of his best known 'inventions' showing up in films and television. A pioneer well worth knowing and remembering.
