But, because of there differences, Tesla soon left the employment of Edison, and in May 1885, George Westinghouse, head of the Westinghouse Electric Company in Pittsburgh, bought the patent rights to many of Tesla's inventions. After a difficult period, during which Tesla invented but lost his rights to many inventions, he established his own laboratory in New York City in 1887, where his inventive mind could be free. In 1895, Tesla discovered X-rays after hours upon hours of experimentation. Tesla's countless experiments included work on different power sources and various types of lightning. The Tesla coil, which he invented in 1891, is widely used today in radio and television sets and other electronic equipment for wireless communication.
Tesla became very ill, based on Wisdom-magazine.com, the journalist, Marguerite dar Boggia, stated in the article Nikola Tesla’s Childhood, “When he was ill, he told his father that if he allowed him to become an engineer, he would get well. His father readily consented and sent him to the best schools and universities”. After this encounter, Tesla studied at the Realschule, Karlstadt in 1873, the Polytechnic Institute in Graz, Austria and the University of Prague. Mentioned by PBS.org, “Tesla was hired by electric power companies in Strasbourg and Paris to improve their DC generation facilities. In Germany and France, he attempted to interest investors in his concept of an AC motor but had no success.
Nobody in Europe cared about promoting his unqualified device, Tesla then accepted an offer to work for Thomas Edison in New York.

Nikola Tesla's funeral took place on January 12, 1943, at the Cathedral of Saint John the Divine in Manhattan, New York City. His body was cremated and his ashes taken to Yugoslavia in 1957. His urn was placed in the Nikola Tesla Museum in Belgrade.
Nikola Tesla was born on July 10, 1856 in Smiljan, Lika. His father, Milutin Tesla was a Serbian Orthodox Priest and his mother Djuka Mandic was an inventor in her own line of household appliances. Tesla studied at the Realschule, Karlstadt in 1873, the Polytechnic Institute in Graz, Austria and the University of Prague. At first, he intended to specialize in physics and mathematics, but soon he became fascinated with electricity. He began his career as an electrical engineer with a telephone company in Budapest in 1881.
During Telsa’s teenage years, he became passionate about mathematics and science, and was set on becoming an engineer. However his father constantly insisted that he enter priesthood. At seventeen Tesla contracted Cholera, his father told Tesla that if he were to survive that he would be allowed to attend Austrian Polytechnic School at Graz to study engineering. While at college one of his professor told him that his idea of Motor powered by alternating currents (AC) would be impossible, so he spent most of his time trying to prove him wrong. His obsession of proving him wrong got so bad that his father often got letters from different professor... ... middle of paper ... ...nsive.
Growing up Nikola’s mother was a huge influence on him becoming a scientist. His father was pushing him to become a priest, but Tesla was more interested in becoming a scientist. In the early years of his life, Nikola’s brother was killed in a riding accident. That is the main reason for him having mental illnesses later in his life. After studying the Johann-Rudolph-Glauber Realschule Karlstadt at the Polytech Institute in Graz, Nikola Tesla moved to Budapest.
Nikola Tesla was a famed inventor in the 1800’s ,and 1900’s. Nikola Tesla was born in July 10, 1856 in Smiljan, Austria-Hungary. His parents were Reverend Milutin Tesla, a Serbian-Orthodox priest, and Djuka Tesla a very smart ,and inventive mother.He was a very smart kid which he saids was all thanks to his mother's teachings and his father's poetry. At a young age Nikola Tesla already knew what he wanted to do , and that was to become an electrical engineer ,but his father wanted him to become a priest. One day Nikola got really ill almost to the point of death until his father told God that if he lets his son live he will pay for Nikola’s education to become an electrical engineer.
When his father died his brother, Hippolyte Carnot came to Paris in order to help his brother finish his book on steam engines that he was currently working on. Sadi's book was finally published in 1824, and in his book was the theory of the "Carnot Cycle" In 1827 he was called back into the military to work as a military engineer which he did for less than one year. He quickly retired and moved back to Paris to continue his work on the theory of heat. In 1832 Sadi Carnot became very sick with the cholera epidemic and he died one day after getting cholera, at the young age of only 36. Carnot is known as the father of thermodynamics.
In 1884, Hertz rederived Maxwell's equations by a new method, casting them in modern form without assumption of ether. However, the lack of a proper laboratory there caused him to take up the position of Professor of Physics at Karlsruhe and stayed for four years in 1885. In 1886 Hertz married Elizabeth Doll, daughter of a Karlsruhe professor; they had two daughters named Johanna and Mathilde. He discovered radio waves in 1888. In the same year, he began to suffer from toothache.
In 1873 he finished his four year term in three. After returning home from school, Tesla contracted cholera which worried his father. Tesla saw this as an opportunity to coerce his father to rescind his plans for Tesla to enter the priesthood and made his father promise that if Te... ... middle of paper ... ...periencing fainting spells. On the first of January he complained of chest pains while conducting an experiment and returned to his hotel where he lived. The last time he was seen alive was by a hotel maid on the fifth, the night he made his phone call to the Secretary of Defense.
