One of the greatest scientific minds the world has ever seen, Nikola Tesla was born in 1856 during an electrical storm in a remote Croatian mountain village. Spending much of his childhood outdoors, he was mesmerized by the forces of nature. Enthralled by the weather around him, the stars above, and the powerful currents of nearby mountain streams, young Niko began to envision ways in which the energy found in nature could be harnessed and controlled.
