Inventor, scientist, engineer

Nikola Tesla (10 July 1856 – 7 January 1943) was a Serbian-American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist and futurist, largely known for his immense contributions to the study of electricity and magnetism. Perhaps his most important contribution was alternating current, as AC power is the worldwide standard for energy transmission.

Tesla held patents for roughly 300 inventions, and is generally regarded as one of the greatest physicists and inventors of all time. Unfortunately for Tesla, despite his intellectual genius, he lacked proper financial tact and was often in debt. He had also developed a rivalry with Thomas Alva Edison, an American inventor and businessman.

One of his most famous inventions was the Tesla coil, used to produce high-voltage, low-current, high frequency alternating-current electricity. In the Command & Conquer: Red Alert series, this invention inspired the Tesla technology of the Soviet Union.
