    Happy Birthday, Nikola Tesla!
    Born on July 10, 1856, in Smiljan (now Croatia), Nikola Tesla was a Serbian-American inventor, engineer and physicist. Tesla is most famously known for his contributions to the design of the modern alternating current electricity system.

    Another "circle 'round the sun": Happy Birthday, Nikola! Oh, what wonders you have missed.

    Didn't plan it that way, but coincidentally I took my first test drive in a Model S on July 10 last year. After that I was hooked...
