More Tesla

I also forgot to mention in my previous post that even in college when I wrote a research paper on the achievements of Tesla, my American history professor had no idea of whom I was speaking and no previous knowledge of the man or his contributions to modern society.Unbelievable ?? I checked the index in my college American History book and there was no mention of him whatsoever. There were countless references to Edison however.Tesla's A/C electrical system is what makes long distance transmission of electrical energy possible and dwarfs Edison's D/C system in comparison! Again, I am still not quite sure why this is but it may have something to do with him being a Croatian immigrant or more likely the fact that TBTB would prefer that nobody knew anything about him at all ! Considering that they most likely pilfered all of the technology and engineering data that he had in his possession at the time of his death.
