Happy birthday to Nikola Tesla!

The letterhead depicts a Tesla tower, technology to transmit electrical power through the earth, without wires. Dunno about that, but some Russian scientists are crowdfunding a project to build one. They do seem sane.

NOTE Here's another story from RT; the headline says "Tesla Tower," but the text doesn't. Hmmm.

...with whom my grandfather (on my fathers side) worked.
The front page of my website has this quote;
"The mind is sharper and keener in seclusion and uninterrupted solitude. No big laboratory is needed in which to think. Originality thrives in seclusion free of outside influences beating upon us to cripple the creative mind. Be alone, that is the secret of invention; be alone, that is when ideas are born."

Actually, yes. But I'm sketchy on the details as it's been a long time since I originally heard them from my father. It involves George Westinghouse and not in a good way; he was somewhat of an SOB. He screwed Nikola out of a $50,000 promise as an example. Well, same with my grandfather regarding his (my grandfather) work on early radio and some patents were stolen from him.
I saw the papers and have no reason to doubt what happened.
