Edison & Tesla, The War of the Currents, a Chautauqua Virtual event

Tue April 13, 2021
7:00 – 8:30pm

Presented by Erik Vedeler, MSEE 

Join an audience that loves talking back to history to discuss Thomas Edison and Nikola Tesla and the turn of the century War of the Currents – with Erik Vedeler, retired NASA Langley Research Center head of the electromagnetics and sensors branch and popular OLLI teacher at UNC Asheville. Erik has a passion for unveiling the fun and mystery of electromagnetics.

In the late 19th century, the world battled over which electricity system—direct current (DC- Edison) or alternating current (AC – Tesla) – would become standard.  The stakes were monumental. The battle epic. The “dirty tricks” down right dirty. And Eric Vedeler takes the “mystery” out of electricity.

The event is Free and will feature audience Q & A.
