Nikola Tesla was born on the ten of July in eighteen fifty-six in Smiljan in Austria. As a child, Tesla suffered from a disability that made him see white flashes that were in the form of real objects. But he managed to fight this evil by imagining new images to crush those flashes. At his seventeen years old, he realize that he was able to imagine real objects in his head of unimaginable clarity and touch.

Nikola Tesla immigrated to America in eighteen eighty-four to work with Thomas Edison who is the pioneer of electricity, the inventor of the artificial light but finally they became rivals because Tesla tries to prove to Edison that alternating current was more interesting than the current Edison continues.

But even after that, Tesla ended up winning and alternating current is spreading around the world for telephone, television, computer, and other...
