Someone might think that electricity is something boring, it is a daily routine, and a natural companion of our life. But this was not always the case. At the dawn of the transformation of electricity into the basis of the new industrial order, it was not just sparkling here, in the literal sense of the word, dramas, confrontations, competition, and betrayal were unfolding here. This period of history is personified by the names of Nikola Tesla and Thomas Edison. And although now electricity is a natural satellite of mankind, the drama in this area has not diminished.
One of the greatest inventors in the field of physics and electricity in history, Nikola Tesla, has long become not just a symbol of the pursuit of knowledge, but also a banner for innovators. His name and surname in their names are carried by the world famous companies Tesla and Nikola Corporation.
I don’t need to explain to anyone about Tesla. This company, headed by Elon Musk, has become a leader in several areas at once — the production of electric vehicles (now Tesla is the world’s # 1 car company in terms of market capitalization, the production and sale of electric vehicles, the construction of new factories and the introduction of innovations), the production of solar roofs for residential buildings, as well as the production of energy storage devices. With good reason, we can say that Tesla is worthily carrying the banner with the name of the famous inventor.
With Nikola Corporation, things are much more complicated. Now the company is not just in the development stage, but one could say that in the stage of painful growth, since they found themselves in a very difficult position due to an attack from opponents of the development of emission-free vehicles, and they do not yet have such a margin of safety. like #tesla
However, the #nikola corporation continues to strive to become one of the world’s leading manufacturers of electric and hydrogen-electric trucks, and more.
To a large extent, it was the development of these projects, and the fact that they raised the name of Nikola Tesla to their banners, prompted the directors and screenwriters to turn to Nikola Tesla again, and this year two films related to him were released at once.
So, I propose to spend these #cinema weekends with # Nikola Tesla

This is a fantastic thriller, the action of which supposedly takes place in our time, and the unfolding dramatic events are associated with a certain «Testament of Nikola Tesla», which contains secret and even destructive knowledge. Of course, there is a great Serb … a Croat, an American … taken as the basis for a spy-fantasy plot, but still, this film will force many to turn to Tesla’s legacy, and may already take a fresh look at electric cars.

How to achieve the implementation of your ideas, while surviving the attacks of conservative and influential competitors? And you are not the only one so smart, there are also «colleagues in the shop». How to build relationships with them? Keep your friends close and your enemies closer? Electricity is a science and technology, and passions are simmering here, not inferior to the plots of Shakespeare’s works.
