Edison & Tesla: The War of the Currents

In the late 19th century, inventors Thomas Edison, Nikola Tesla and George Westinghouse battled over which electricity system – direct current (DC) or alternating current – would power the world’s entry into the 20th century. The stakes were monumental. The battle epic. The “dirty tricks” down right dirty. And Eric Vedeler will take the “mystery” out of electricity. Retired from NASA after a 26-year career at Langley Research Center as the head of the electromagnetics and sensors branch, Erik demonstrates a dramatic flair for unveiling the fun and mystery of electromagnetics. This virtual event is free and will feature audience Q&A. Register for the event at:
