  4. Nikola Tesla Birthday

Nikola Tesla was born on 10 July, 1856

Serbian-American physicist and futurist famous for being the pioneer in the field of alternating current and setting up the design of the modern day AC electricity supply system.

He held several patents including the AC induction motor and transformer which earned him a lot of money which he then used to finance his own projects. Throughout his life in the United States, Tesla was involved in a bitter fight with Thomas Edison, the latter favouring his own direct current (DC) over AC.
