In 1879, Thomas Edison successfully created the first practical incandescent bulb. He was about to light up New York and the entire world, using his Direct Current electrical system. Along came a lesser-known inventor named Nikola Tesla who would go on to prove the superiority of Alternating Current over Edison’s Direct Current. A battle ensued, ambitions and aspirations clashed. What drove these great minds to achieve the impossible, and what must they learn to give up in order to truly benefit the world?
