Nikola Tesla a scientist, an inventor and researcher. He invented a system of alternating current and AC motor, which we now use, high-frequency generators and transformers. He has long before Marconi and Popov invented the radio and the antenna mast.

Tesla author of more than 800 inventions although he patented only 300. But all this he considered only a prelude to great followed discoveries. He wanted to develop a method of transmitting energy at a distance on an industrial scale to obtain energy from outer space, as well as management of geophysical processes with the help of resonance.
