If a man came back from the future with only good intentions and the progression of human kind, it would be his present day peers that will bring him down.

hundreds of women literally wanted his D, but he refused each and every single one politely basically saying that it would be a distraction from his first, last and only love: science.
also using his idea, if we manage to get a system that can use Dark Energy as a power source, wi will literally have infinite free energy.
btw the sun smothers the earth in 7.5 petawatts of energy each and every single day... it will take 0.004 petawatts of energy and dark energy each to get from Sol to Alpha Centauri in one day.

By the time we even come close to that type of scientific advancement we probably would have nuked ourselves

If I were to invent a time machine, I would head back to his time. I would set up to meet him in some way, nothing really obvious, no chasing him in the street, shouting his name, just arrange to meet him 'coincidentally'. I would place a hand on his shoulder and say "Regardless of what happens when you leave this mortal coil, many, many years from now, you shall be remembered...your name will always be remembered."

People chose Edison to power the world because they could market his idea. Telsa'
s ideas couldn't easily be sold to the masses. It's a conspiracy

I'm glad Tesla didn't get to build his free energy for all machine.

No, seriously. This isn't about "hurr durr capitalism" or anything like that. It would have been revolutionary and incredible, and completely reshaped human civilization as we know it. However, can you imagine the amount of power that, say, New York uses on a daily basis flying through the air from one device to another? I have a feeling there would be incredible amounts of cancer. And once that was found out, we'd either have to keep all getting cancer for a while or turn the power off until we'd built a wired infrastructure.

If Tesla had his way we probably wouldn't even need to plug stuff in, because it would travel through the air...

So some of you may not really care what so ever, but i'm in an IB progam (long story short i have to do a 4k word research paper) and the one thing that i found out was that not only was this dude awesome, a chick magnet (though he didnt touch them) and what not...coolest thing? he was inspired to create the AC induction motor.....after petting his cat....at age 4
