Nikola Tesla's Modern Influence
Born in 1856 in what is now Croatia, Nikola Tesla would grow up to become one of the most influential inventors of the 19th and early 20th centuries. While he never reached the stardom that his biggest rival Thomas Edison did, his patents and ideas shape much of modern technology. In his new book, Richard Munson explores Tesla's eccentricities and personal life as well as his scientific achievements.
Join us today as we discuss Tesla's life and the impact his inventions had on the world.
