About (Profile/Biography):

Nikola Tesla is a well-known Serbian-American inventor born in the Austrian Empire. A Serbian-American inventor, Nikola Tesla, is most recognized for creating alternating current electrical systems. He also made outstanding contributions to wireless radio communications and electromagnetic. He had an eidetic memory and was a young genius. His discoveries and studies show that he also had a futuristic vision for humanity. He was a mechanical and electrical engineer who created the modern electric motor, wireless energy transmission, the first neon, fluorescent lighting, radar technology, the primary laser, and the Tesla coil.

Nikola started building the trans-Atlantic radio communications facility in Wardenclyffe, close to Shoreham, Long Island, in 1900. Around the period of World War I, he conducted numerous experiments there but was obliged to sell it owing to financial constraints. 

Later, Nikola revealed a technique for precisely pinpointing the location of underground mineral deposits and transmitting mechanical energy over any terrestrial distance with the least amount of loss.

Achievements and Awards:

In recognition of his significant contributions to the advancement of radio, Nikola was given the moniker "father of the radio" in 1943. 

Nikola was a trailblazer creating rotating magnetic fields, the foundation of most AC machinery, radar, and X-ray technology.
