Let There Be Light - Nikola Tesla


Tesla v's Edison - What did Tesla know and why did ‘All American hero’ Thomas Edison try to destroy this amazing and prolific inventor? Let there be Light explores inventor, visionary and eccentric Nikola Tesla. The story finds Tesla at a crucial turning point after he had been banished from mainstream science into a life of obscurity and poverty. As one of the most eccentric, misunderstood and humanistic physicists of the 19th and early 20th Century, he was a prolific inventor but got credit for virtually none of his world changing technological ideas as his competitors and the world ignored, ridiculed and did whatever they could to discredit, humiliate and steal from him. This program reveals his scientific accomplishments, struggles, flaws, humanity and humor. New York City – 1930’s. Nicola Tesla, inventor of most everything electrical, has been discredited by mainstream science and stolen from by his competitors, led by ‘All American hero’ Thomas Edison. With no one to listen to, understand, or fund his new ideas, his creative mind stops, redirecting its intensity into an agonizing depression that can be only result in suicide. The act is delayed by a visitor, Virginia Millhouse who claims to be a female journalist, but who is actually pursuing a different agenda. In the ensuing hours of their meeting he shares some of his most innovative discoveries and innermost secrets. Virginia becomes inspired by their discussion and decides to follow her own dreams. Tesla’s moves out of suicidal depression by the thought that his new student and biographer will carry on his work and his mind and soul is inspired to continue inventing. Upon Virginia leaving, we find out that she was a spy, sent by Edison, to get the last of Tesla’s ideas in exchange to get a position in his multimillion dollar laboratory. But she keeps Tesla’s notes to herself after being inspired and changed forever by the most rugged (and perhaps deluded) individualist of 19th and early 20th Century Science. To this day, Tesla’s inventions remain years ahead of “modern” science. Many of his inventions are reportedly under lock and key by governments on both sides of the former Iron Curtain. Tesla’s inventions include a car that runs without engines, wireless transmission of electricity on a world scale and a machine that can (and did) make the earth shake. Nikola Tesla (1856–1943), was a Serbian-American physicist, inventor, mechanical and electrical engineer. He was one of the most important contributors to the birth of commercial electricity and is best known for his many revolutionary developments in the field of electromagnetism in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Tesla was the inventor of the radio, the electric motor and generator and his theoretical work formed the basis of modern alternating current (AC) electric power systems.
