It is only fitting that these biennial events be hosted in Colorado Springs where Tesla reached his zenith as he dared to confront the unknown.
Unlike many of his peers, Tesla would constantly challenge the conventional wisdom of his day in a number of different fields. Now, a nearly a half century after his death, the conventional wisdom is still standing and is once again being challenged.
At the University of Graz, Tesla raised the issue utilizing AC power. Chastised and rebuked by his peers and his professor as being out in left field somewhere. Tesla went on to develop the Alternating Current motor which would bring the 20th Century home to millions!
Later, Tesla felt that if mankind wouldn’t stop fighting one another, they should turn to robots to do the fighting and at least save themselves from bloodshed.
The result? The world’s first automaton (complete with logic circuits and remote control) which was brushed aside by naval commanders as too advanced!
Radio, superior lightning protection, advanced lighting techniques, and the world’s most efficient motor–the blade less turbine–are just a few of the elements comprising Tesla’s legacy to the world.
