Nikola Tesla

About I greatly impacted society with my inventions and discoveries in electricity, technology, and physics. My greatest invention was most likely AC, or alternating current. AC was much safer and more efficient than Edison's DC (direct current), which caused multiple housefires and deaths. I was engaged in a "current war" between Edison and myself, and the best science won: mine. Beyond AC, I developed countless other patents and experimented with X-ray. I even invented the radio (although Marconi stole my idea.)

Work I worked for Thomas Edison as an engineer and redisigned the DC motor, but Edison didn't pay up so I quit. After, I went on to start my own company and becamse my own boss. I tried to create wireless transmition of electricity, but my funding was cut. Penniless and misunderstood, I moved into a NYC hotel and lived alone except for my best friends: the pigeons.
