  2. All I can say is that Nikola Tesla is still one of the greatest minds to have ever lived! He does not get as much recognition as he deserves. I have spent a great deal of time researching the many projects he patented and in doing so I have come to realize that many of his inventions were swept under the rug due to what many considered “impossible” during that period. Although many of his inventions are still used today, the lack of recognition is a very sad situation indeed.
