The man was brilliant but not very confident in his abilities. He allowed Thomas Edison to talk him out of his life's work. He and Edison worked on the theory of two different types of electrical power but George Westinghouse believed Tesla's power would work better. Tesla is responsible for the design behind the power grids that are still in use today...Edison eventually became more involved wit the invention of things that electricity could power. He worked for Thomas Edison for a short time but left the company due to their differences of opinions. If the two of them could have continued to work together who knows what more could have developed.
He was an incredibly brilliant man. It's interesting that he's become more well respected as more about him is known.
I think he was a genius in his own time, but his name would have been lost to history if not for the conspiracy theories surrounding the likes of the Philadelphia Experiment.
I think his name has actually been hijacked by the sci-fi fraternity.
