The Serbian-American scientist and artist Nikola Tesla had a adamantine life. Despite actuality one of the best ablaze bodies in the world, he was busted over assorted times by none added than Thomas Edison. The aftereffect of said screwings was that Tesla died poor, alone, and about abandoned by the world. Edison got the aboriginal beam by antibacterial Tesla and beating his inventions, but time has been kinder to Tesla. He has in actuality been adequate a activation in accepted ability lately. Online artist The Oatmeal (Matthew Inman) is amid those reinterpreting Tesla’s abode in the history of American inventors.
Today admitting you apparently accessory the name Tesla with Elon Musk’s electric car company, Tesla Motors. No agnosticism Tesla would be admiring to see his name actuality put to acceptable use these days. But it begs the question: If Nikola Tesla were animate today, would he drive a Tesla car? Our answer: Abso-Freakin’-Lutely. Which got us thinking, if added asleep scientists were animate today, what cars would they drive (aside from a Tesla of course).
1.) Einstein – Smart Car
Even admitting Einstein never collection a car (he didn’t apperceive how to drive), his above ability would no agnosticism advance him to accept the atomic ability of a Acute Car. Small, acute (obviously), and sporty, it’s the accomplished amalgamation for any Jewish German-American ability on the go.
2.) Carl Sagan – Nissan Leaf
Carl Sagan, the man who accomplished millions (including Neil Degrasse Tyson) to adulation science would no agnosticism be abashed that deposit fueled cars still boss the world. If he didn’t bounce for a Tesla Motors Model S, he’d absolutely opt for the 100 percent electric Nissan Leaf. Gotta bottle that anemic dejected dot.
3.) Da Vinci – Delorean
Even admitting best Deloreans accept been angry into adaptable Meccas of Aback to the Future geekdom, there’s no agnosticism that if Leonardo Da Vinci came aback as a crank he would appetite one. Because how alarming would he (or anyone for that matter) attending canoeing through the Italian countryside in a Delorean?
4.) Edison – Pontiac Aztek
Thomas Edison alone destroyed the activity and career of Nikola Tesla, so what bigger car for him to drive than the Pontiac Aztek? This car’s abhorrent actualization absolutely matches the close affliction of his soul. Also – absolutely accordingly – the Aztek distinct handedly broke Pontiac, abundant like he broke Tesla. It’s like they were fabricated for anniversary other.
5.) Neil Armstrong – Corvette
Neil Armstrong absolutely collection a Corvette in absolute life. Which makes me anticipate that a accessible crank Neil Armstrong would appetite to accumulate the attitude alive. Being the aboriginal man on the moon is a appealing alarming appellation to backpack through life, so you charge a badass car to accompany you.
6.) Isaac Newton – Scion FR-S
As the discoverer of force and the grandfathering of avant-garde physics, Newton (if he were animate today…zombie Newton. I suppose) would appetite to drive article with a low centermost of gravity. Low centermost of force = beneath adventitious of abhorrent afterlife or abrasion in a collision. The Scion FR-S is accepted for its ultra-low centermost of gravity. Perfect.
7.) Alexander Graham Bell – Chevy Malibu
Alexander Graham Bell invented the blast and ushered in the avant-garde age of communication. I’m abiding he’d be afraid to see how far we’ve appear in the breadth of agenda communication. He would charge a car with alarming iPhone abutment and integration, authoritative the Chevy Malibu an accessible choice.
8.) Charles Darwin – Nissan Pathfinder
Charles Darwin’s car would accept to be a absolutely able Nissan Pathfinder for absolutely applied reasons. The ancestor of change would charge article absolutely loaded and reliable to accompany him on those abysmal wilderness treks to abstraction attenuate specimens.
9.) Galileo Galilei – Fiat 500
After actuality fabricated a abomination by the Catholic abbey for his accurate work, a crank Galileo would no agnosticism drive an Italian Fiat 500. Not because he has a accurate bulk of Italian pride, but as a way to animosity the Vatican for blame him over back he was animate (the aboriginal time). I can aloof brainstorm him active about St. Peter’s Square agreeable
10.) Isaac Asimov – Dodge Caravan
America’s best acclaimed science fiction biographer didn’t decidedly like active (he alleged active in Boston “anarchy on wheels”). But if Asimov came aback to the avant-garde age, he would apparently charge a car. Without a agnosticism he’d appetite article safe and affordable, like a mini van. It’s a banal car of course, but it would leave affluence of amplitude in there for books and added science. Make abiding to allotment this one with the car active and science nerds on your Facebook by beat below.
