A portrait of Nikola Tesla on the cover of
Time (The Weekly Newsmagazine)
July 20, 1931 issue.
Larawang Tribiya
          Marami ang nakakaalam, lalo na ang mga mahilig sa general information, na si Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) ang inventor ng electric motor at pioneer ng modern electrical engineering. Siya ay isang Serbian electrical at mechanical engineer, physicist at inventor na naging American citizen. Marami siyang inventions na maituturing na “groundbreaking.” Alam niyo ba na noong 1891 ipinakita niya na possible ang wireless energy transfer? Pinangarap ni Tesla na magkaroon ng isang intercontinental wireless transmission ng industrial power, subalit hindi niya natapos ang kaniyang Wardenclyffe Tower project. Inisip din niyang gawing isang energy power source ang init na nagmumula sa mga karagatan (ocean thermal energy). Sa kaniyang pagkamatay, kasama niyang nabaon sa libingan ang maraming mga kaalaman na hanggang ngayon ay pilit pa ring tinutuklas ng mga siyentista.
          Bilang parangal sa kaniya, ang System International (SI) unit para sa magnetic flux density – Tesla – ay ipinangalan sa kaniya noong 1960.
          Sa ika-75 kaarawan ni Tesla (July 10, 1931) at bilang parangal sa mga naiambag niya sa larangan ng electrical power generation, inilagay siya sa taklob-pahina (cover) ng Time (The Weekly Newsmagazine) July 20, 1931 issue, kung saan nakasulat sa ilalim ng kaniyang pangalan ang caption na “All the world’s his power house.”
