    Nikola Tesla was a Serbian-American inventor, electrical engineer, mechanical engineer, physicist, and futurist, who is best known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system. Born and raised in the Austrian Empire, Tesla received an advanced education in engineering and physics in the 1870s and gained practical experience in the early 1880s working in telephony and at Continental Edison in the new electric power industry. He emigrated to the United States in 1884, where he would become a naturalized citizen.

    Inventor and scientist Nikola Tesla believed in life on other planets. One night in his laboratory in the Colorado mountains, he began noting electronic signals that he deduced came from an intelligent life form on another planet. While over 100 years later we have still failed to prove the existence of alien life, Tesla’s short article provides a fascinating look at the possibility of interplanetary communication. To the visionary who invented wireless communication, sending a message to Mars was merely the logical next step.
