The remote control system, recognitions
The enlarged photograph of the antenna of Tesla's "World's radiostation" which he constructed in Long Island in the vicinity of New York, testifies his farsightedness and ingenuity. His idea was that this station, build in 1900 should by remote wireless control transmit throughout the world not only the news but music and photographs as well. However, that great plan could not be carried out becouse Tesla did not have sufficient resources to do so. That seems to be the direct cause for Tesla'a withdrawing from people and leading an isolated life. Yet his great work remained as a testimony of his creative life, as well as meny diplomas of recognition given to him by many well-known world universities and scientific institutions.
The greatest among all the recognitions, however, is the one given to him posthumously
(in 1960) by the International Commision for Electrical Engineering, at its session
in Philadelphia. That Commision decided that the unit of magnetic induction is to be
universaly called Unit "tesla" (as well as formula)
So Tesla was included among the most outstanding scientists such as Volta, Ampere, Faraday, Kelvn and others.
The exhibition ends with the posthumous mask of Tesla, with the words of American inventor Armstrong next to it:
equal to Tesla's, a mind of such creative possibilities
and such wealth of magination."
