According to research and history, Tesla’ s career was a heritable part of his father’ s passion for creativity. Tesla was born and raised as an ethnic Serb in the village of Smiljan, Austrian Empire (modern- day Croatia) on 10 July 1856 by Milutin and Duka Mandic.
His father was a priest of the eastern orthodox church but had the ability to make local tools and mechanical appliances with which Tesla took an interest and, as a result, took other parts of his mother’ s career, like the eidetic memory and creativity ability. He was the fourth child of his parents. He attended primary school at age 5 in 1861, where he studied German, Arithmetic, and religion.
What Triggered His Engineering Career?
In 1873, Tesla contracted cholera shortly after returning to Smijan and was bedridden for nine months and was near death.
In order to make him happy, his father, who had once wanted him to be a priest, made a change of mind when he promised to send him to the best engineering school if he recovered from the illness. Tesla was able to perform integral calculus in his head, which made his teacher believe that he was cheating.
How Tesla Invention Started
In the 1870s, Tesla studied engineering and physics without receiving a degree, only to gain practical experience in the 1880s during his work with both telephone and Continental Edison in a new electric power industry.
Tesla had a great experiment ideal for electric invention. He emigrated to the United States in 1884 and worked for a short period of time at the Edison Machine Works in New York City before he could explode his ideal into his own private sector with the help of his partners, who supported him financially and also marketed his ideal.
Tesla developed a range of electrical and mechanical devices in his laboratory and companies.
Apart from that, Tesla made a huge amount of money with his developed ideal resource, the manufacture of his Alternating current (AC) induction motor and related polyphase AC patents that were licensed by Westinghouse Electric in 1888 which had become the best market product so far.
Another invention made by him was the development of a wireless controlled boat. He became so prominent that his existence was admired by men after conducting a range of experiments with mechanical oscillators/generators, electrical discharge tubes, and early X- ray imaging. As such, he became more known for his showmanship in lectures.
Today, his ideal has yielded wireless light and worldwide wireless electricity power distribution, as a result of his experiments in New York and Colorado springs.
In 1892, Tesla made an attempt at wireless communication. The cell phone device that he tried to accomplish with the use of an intercontinental wireless communication and power transmitter (Wardenclyffe Tower project) but lacked financial support to enable him to finish it.
However, Tesla, with his money, had great success and acquired a degree in different aspects of engineering that contributed to his success and creativeness. In conclusion, the great lived in a series of New York hotels, leaving numerous debts behind before his death in January 1943. Yet, Tesla’ s experiments and inventions have contributed to the development of electric power, especially in the field of study.
