Marconi was not the first person to send a radio wave across the sea on December 12th 1901...What Marconi transmitted was a wide band source of electrical interference that was used to type out the Morse Code, and not a radio wave per se...

Six months after Tesla died in 1943, the US Supreme Court overturned a 1904 ruling that Marconi was the the inventor of radio communication, and ruled that all of Marconi`s radio patents were invalid, and consequently awarded those patents for the discovery of radio communication, to Tesla...

In the past the common name given to the intensity of a magnetic field was measured in Gauss, for example a magnet would have a magnetic strength of 100 Gauss...Nowadays the common measurement will be (you guessed it) , 100 Teslas...

As I recall, there are rumors that Tesla survived 1943 and was taken by aliens. Are you aware of those? I believe I've read it elsewhere on this site.
Yes, iam aware of that....Fortunately however, the US Supreme Court believed that Tesla was dead ;) :D..
