I see from Google's picture today that it is, or would have been the birthday of Nikola Tesla.
It still puzzles me why, they can happily use many of his inventions in every day life, yet my kids can go through their entire primary school years
without a mention of him in science lessons? They probably won't in high school either.
If it weren't for me explaining a few things to them, they'd be ignorant to his excistance.
Oh well, it's almost 2am here in the UK, i'm waiting for the ISS to go overhead, and i'm raising a cup of coffee to the great man as we speak.
Happy Birthday Nikola Tesla!
