Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison

Author(s): Robyn Hardyman

Physical Sciences

For much of the twentieth century, history assumed all inventions in electricity and lighting came from one man, Thomas Edison. His work was remarkable but in fact it was Nikola Tesla who pioneered the electrical system that is in standard use around the world today. This book explores the life and work of two remarkable scientists, who both changed people's lives but only one found fame and riches in his own lifetime. How have some of the most successful scientific pairings in history changed the advancement of science and led to discoveries that might never otherwise have been made? Dynamic Duos explores the fascinating scientific partnerships between some of the world's leading scientists. From Darwin and Wallace to Einstein and Eddington, without these 'dynamic pairings' some of the most spectacular discoveries and critical theories in the history of science might never have been made. An informative series for children aged 9+.
