Happy Birthday Nicky!
For those who find enjoyment in learning why things are, today is Nikola Tesla's Brithday! He was born in Serbia, contributed to the scientific world like few others, in the fields of electromagnetics, robotics, radar, nuclear physics, ballistics and many others. The SI unit of magnetic measure (actually the measure of magnetic flux density ), the Tesla, is named after him. My favorite Tesla fact is that he calculated the resonant frequency of the Earth (~8Hz). Happy b-day Nicky.
