But other than that the average school child never hears anything about him, his life and his incredible work.
Our world literally runs on his inventions.
So why isn’t he more famous?
For one thing, Thomas Edison hated him and the Edison companies had the power to work anti-PR against him and his reputation and they did.
More intriguing is the suggestion that the Pentagon far from not being able to understand his papers which they seized after he died, they not only understood what was in them, they are also using his ideas…but don’t want us to know. Thus making Tesla disappear from history.
However it happened, it was done. The man who invented the modern world is, for all practical purposes, unknown today.
