Mad Scientists

Nikola Tesla to followNikola Tesla was prevalent scientist of the 19th century. He often worked with Thomas Edison in the 1880’s until the two had a falling out because Edison became paranoid that Tesla was stealing his ideas. Tesla developed AC power used all over the world now and worked with George Westinghouse to promote it. He laid the foundation for radio, television, and almost too many modern inventions to name. Basically almost any technology he started the base for. Madness turned him into a recluse later in his life, as goes the path of many geniuses before there was more understanding of mental illness. Tesla died in poverty in a small apartment and by then was considered a full blown “Mad Scientist” in 1943.
