小编导语:该视频主要讲述了有关尼古拉·特斯拉的内容。尼古拉·特斯拉是世界知名的发明家、物理学家、机械工程师和电机工程师。特斯拉被认为是历史上一位重要的发明家。他在19世纪末和20世纪初对电和磁性做出了杰出贡献。他的专利和理论工作形式依据现代交变电流电力(AC)的系统,包括多相电力分配系统和AC马达,帮助了他带起第二次工业革命。

Nikola Tesla was born on July 10th, 1856...

尼古拉·特斯拉生于1856年7月10日…

...in the territory of modern day Croatia to his two Serbian parents.

出生于当今克罗地亚境内,与他的两对塞尔维亚父母。

Tesla grew up into a bright, inquisitive, yet eccentric child...

特拉斯长大成为一个聪明、好奇而又古怪的孩子。

...who found himself fascinated by the world around him.

他发现他对于自己周围的世界非常着迷。

Tesla once attempted to generate electricity by rubbing two cats together,...

特斯拉曾试图通过让两只猫在一起摩擦来发电,

...which resulted in two very mad cats and a scratched up Tesla.

结果导致了两只疯狂的猫和被挠伤的特斯拉。

On June 6th, 1884, Tesla arrived in the United States.

1884年6月6日,特斯拉来到美国。

He was hired by Thomas Edison to do basic electrical engineering,...

他受雇于托马斯·爱迪生进行基本的电气工程。

..but moved up to redesigning the direct current generators that ran Edison's business.

但升职后重新设计直流发电机,经营爱迪生的业务。

Tesla eventually left Edison's company and partnered with George Westinghouse in 1888...

特斯拉后来离开了爱迪生的公司, 在1888年与乔治•威斯汀豪斯进行合作…

...to commercialize his system of alternating current.

The problem here is that alternating current competed with direct current,...

...which Thomas Edison built his entire monopoly on.

Thus began the War of the Currents.

Tesla's influence spreads much further than electricity.

He had over 700 patents and came up with ideas...

...such as robots, spark plugs, the electric arc lamp,...

...an X-ray device, bladeless turbines,...

...wireless communication, laser technology, neon lights,...

...remote controls, cellular communication, the radio,...

...an electrical bath to remove germs, radar, and much more.

Despite his fame and influence on the world,...

...he died with significant debts and all alone.

While Edison is known as the inventor of the century,...

...Tesla is only acknowledged as a paragraph in today's history books:...

..forgotten and unappreciated.

Thus ends the story of Nikola Tesla, genius and inventor.
