Tesla Road sign has been installed in Rockingham last week. Thanks to Tesla Forum and City of Rockingham, the road was named after Nikola Tesla, Serbian-American Scientist and Inventor, one of the greatest inventors of all time.

Nikola Tesla was born on July 10, 1856, in the village of Smiljan, in the province of Lika within Vojna Krajina region. His father was a Serbian Orthodox priest, a gifted writer and poet. In his library young Tesla spent countless hours. Nikola’s mother, in his own words was an inventor of the first order. Tesla himself inherited a mix of his parents’ characteristics. He was a poetic dreamer, highly intelligent, altruistic, and strongly self-disciplined with desire for invention.

Tesla was one of the greatest minds of his time. In 1882 he made the discovery that changed the world by harnessing the power of the Alternating Current.

TESLA FORUM is a non-profit organisation that was established in 2003 with the idea to make the general public and scientific community aware of the forgotten genius, the man who enabled the 20th century, NIKOLA TESLA.

Tesla Forum is organizing annual celebration of the Tesla Day in Western Australia. This year’s event will be held on 11 July 2009 (more details on www.teslaforum.com).
