Fact of the Day: Tesla Electron

While Nikola Tesla is a considered one of the greatest minds to ever live, he did get some things wrong about science. One of his biggest blunders is that he believed there was no such thing such as subatomic particles such as an electron for example.

There's a major Tesla connection to my town - he lived here for a while to conduct experiments, because we get so many thunderstorms.

My favorite "tip of the hat" to Tesla is the tesla tree in the science fiction novel "Hyperion" by Dan Simmons. The tesla tree stored static electricity, and when it discharged it ignited anything flammable in its vicinity. A tesla forest was a scary, life-threatening place.
