Nikola Tesla: World Marks 70th Anniversary Of Death Of World’s Greatest Inventor

Today marks the anniversary of the death of one of the most important inventors in history, Croatia-born scientist Nikola Tesla. Tesla died aged 86 on January 7 1943 in New York, exactly 70 years ago, and was remembered largely for inventing the electrical system.

A reef will be placed on the monument of Tesla located in the street named after him in Croatia’s capital Zagreb, in memory of the great inventor. The 70th anniversary of his death will also be marked in New York where he spent much of his life.

Tesla was born on 10 July 1856 in the town of Smiljan in the region of Lika in Croatia. Apart from inventing the modern AC electrical supply system, Tesla is also known for his high-voltage, high frequency power experiments in New York and Colorado Springs which included patented devices and theoretical work used in the invention of radio communication, for his X-ray experiments, and for his attempts at intercontinental wireless transmission.
