Explore the Captivating Life of Nikola Tesla Obsessive, brilliant, and tortured, Nikola Tesla was lauded for his invention of the alternating current (AC), and other significant contributions to science. His claim that "harnessing the forces of nature was the only worthwhile scienti... fic endeavor" both impressed and enraged the scientific community. Eventually, his peers could no longer dismiss his eccentricities and began to view him as a crackpot - a potentially dangerous one. Although Tesla's work was a major factor in the success of the second Industrial Revolution, he died alone, impoverished, and largely shunned by the scientific community that once hailed him a genius. Beset by visions, without a wife or children, Nikola Tesla's brilliant mind changed the world, even though at the time of his death he passed unnoticed into obscurity.
