Ted Tuesday: The Greatest Inventors of Our Time— A Tale of Two Teslas

“I'm glad that Tesla is pushing the envelope. No one else was going to do it. Dream big or go home.” — Margarita, commenting on

Good Morning Folks,

This may be our most important Ted Tuesday yet. Because if you think Tesla is just an electric car designed by a silicon valley millionaire who made his money inventing PayPal and now wants to go to be a pioneering settler on Mars, you'd be wrong.

That Tesla is Elon Musk, a man who is well join the way to defeating Steve Jobs reputation of the inventor of our our generation leaving more advancements for mankind than any other. He named his company Tesla in memory of another inventor you may not have heard much about.

Nikola Tesla is the most underrated genius in history arguably smarter than both Edison and Einstein. He has over 300 patents for many things we take for granted.

According to Wikipedia:
“Nikola Tesla was one of those super-genius badasses whose intellect placed him dangerously on the precipice between “great scientific mind” and “utter madness”. He held 700 patents at the time of his death, made groundbreaking discoveries in the fields of physics, robotics, steam turbine engineering, and magnetism, and once melted one of his assistants’ hands by overloading it with X-rays – which isn’t really scientific, but is still pretty cool.” 
Yes long story short he tapped into the zero-point energy field (empty space that has an infinite amount of energy) and was able to generate electricity in homes for free. Greedy CEOs (a.k.a. Thomas Edison, J.P. Morgan) obviously did not want this to happen because well free energy for everyone would mean no money for them and would damage their wealth and reputation. So they sabotage Tesla and his work in order to benefit themselves. You know, usual corporate BULLSHIT. 
It really is quite a shame that Tesla does not have the fame that other scientists have had. He was extremely revolutionary and undoubtedly could have pushed the field of physics decades ahead. It’s all because of Thomas Edison, who went out of his way to spend time and money to debunk and defame Tesla, all in the name of fame and money.if you do a little recherche you will find that Einstein quivers in comparison to Tesla, Einstein not being the brightest of his time anyway. And about some of his works being kept secret (and there are certainly are a few) don’t expect anything, after all they are detained by the one country that managed to enslaved the contemporary world (cough* United States cough*).
Tesla was renowned for his achievements and showmanship, eventually earning him a reputation in popular culture as an archetypal "mad scientist." His patents earned him a considerable amount of money, much of which was used to finance his own projects with varying degrees of success. He lived most of his life in a series of New York hotels, through his retirement. He died on 7 January 1943."
In today's Ted Talk, meet Entrepreneur Elon Musk, a man with many plans. The founder of PayPal, Tesla Motors and SpaceX sits down with TED curator Chris Anderson to share details about his visionary projects, which include a mass-marketed electric car, a solar energy leasing company and a fully reusable rocket.Elon Musk is the chief designer for SpaceX, overseeing development of rockets and spacecraft for missions to Earth orbit and ultimately to other planets. In 2008, SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket and Dragon spacecraft won the NASA contract to provide a commercial replacement for the cargo transport function of the space shuttle. In 2012, SpaceX became the first commercial company to dock with the International Space Station and return cargo to Earth with the Dragon.

At Tesla, Musk has overseen product development and design from the beginning, including the all-electric Tesla Roadster, Model S and Model X, and overseeing the rollout of Supercharger stations to keep the cars juiced up. (Some of the charging stations use solar energy systems from SolarCity, of which Musk is the non-executive chair.) Transitioning to a sustainable energy economy, in which electric vehicles play a pivotal role, has been one of his central interests for almost two decades. He co-founded PayPal and served as the company's chair and CEO.
Musk Hyperloop
You may have read about his hyperlpoop project which came even after this talk was film, but even after that and seemingly out of nowhere last week.. Telsa’s new line of big, stackable batteries for homes and businesses started with a bang. The reservations reported in the first week are valued at roughly $800 million, according to numbers crunched by Bloomberg Business. If Tesla converts even a fraction of those reservations into actual sales, the battery roll-out could measure up as one of the biggest ever for a new product category.

Electricity storage products aren't new. But Tesla’s price, power, and packaging set these batteries apart in a way that echoes the gap between the first iPhone and the smartphones that came before it. Now Musk has brought an Apple-launch level of public interest to what's essentially a infrastructure product, albeit one with potential to transform the way electrical grids are managed and the speed that solar power is adopted. 

Says Elon Musk, "Well, it goes back to when I was in university. I thought about, what are the problems that are most likely to affect the future of the world or the future of humanity? IBut when you want to do something new, you have to apply the physics approach. Physics is really figuring out how to discover new things that are counter intuitive, like quantum mechanics. It's really counter intuitive. So I think that's an important thing to do, and then also to really pay attention to negative feedback, and solicit it, particularly from friends. This may sound like simple advice, but hardly anyone does that, and it's incredibly helpful."
