Today is National Science Day

In the Republic of Serbia, today will be celebrated the National ScienceDay. Association Renewable Energy Sources of Serbia is pleased to join the tradition of celebrating the National Science Day, the date of which was chosen to be July 10th – the birthday of our greatest scientist, but also one of the greatest scientists in the world, Nikola Tesla.

Nikola Tesla was born on July 10th, 1856 in Smiljan, and died on January 7th, 1943 in New York, at the age of 86. His most significant inventions are the revolving Tesla transformer, polyphase system, synchronous and asynchronous motor. The unit of measure for magnetic flux density or magnetic field strength was named after Nikola Tesla, and his most famous contribution was realized in the design of the modern AC power supply system.

Apart from Serbia, Tesla’s birthday is also celebrated in the United States of America, Canada and Uganda in order of science promotion.
