Did Nikola Tesla conceive one of the first weapons of mass destruction and was he murdered for it? The radio, cell phone, and alternating current electricity have all revolutionized the way humans live and they all have one very important person in common: Nikola Tesla. Tesla, often called the Man Who Invented the 20th Century, was the most famous and perhaps most dangerous mind of his time. In 1943, he was found dead in a hotel room, his safe cracked open, and his research missing. In 2016, the FBI declassified 250 documents that give fresh insight into Tesla's final work and final days. These files reveal new information about a weapon Tesla conceived called the Death Ray and show world superpowers including the US, Soviet Union and Axis powers were all interested in the weapon. The declassified FBI files lead many experts to believe a full investigation is needed to determine what happened to Nikola Tesla. The all-new Discovery series TESLA premieres Tuesday, January 2 at 10:00 pm ET/PT on Discovery and seeks to uncover information about the innovator's life and inventions.
