Did You Know: Nikola Tesla

Did you know that Nikola Tesla’s ideas were often ridiculed?

For example, at the beginning of World War I, the US government desperately searched for a way to detect German submarines. The government put Thomas Edison in charge of the search for a good method.

Nikola Tesla proposed the use of energy waves – what we know today as radar – to detect ships, but Edison rejected Tesla’s idea as ludicrous and the world had to wait another 25 years until it was invented.
