Nikola Tesla was born around midnight, between July 9 and July 10,1856 during a fierce lightningstorm. According to the family legend, the midwife declared that “This child will be a child of darkness”, mother said: “No, He will be a child of light” and that what he proves. He was a Serbian American inventor who made dozens of breakthroughs in the production, transmission and application of electric power.

Tesla was the one who invented the alternating current. For few years he worked for Thomas Elva Edison who worked on DC current which is not safe as it produced dangerous sparking while Tesla put this whole effort to prove that AC current is totally safe as it passes AC through his body to produce light.

Obviously, Tesla was not the one who invented light itself but he did invent how light can be harnessed and distributed. In fact he used the fluorescent bulbs before industry made them.

3. X-rays
