      in Colorado Springs in December 1899. Tesla's notes
      identify the photo as a double exposure.

      Nikola Tesla played a powerful role in the electrical revolution
      that transformed life at the turn of the 20th century. Born to a
      Serbian family in Croatia, he studied engineering in Austria
      before immigrating to America in 1884. He arrived penniless
      in New York, and within a decade, rivaled Thomas Edison
      as a celebrity scientist. His inventions, patents and theoretical work
      formed the basis of modern AC electricity,
      and contributed to the development of radio and wireless communication.
