10 Fun Facts About Nikola Tesla

Tesla was pro-eugenics and thought that some people just weren’t fit to produce offspring. According to Smithsonian.com, he wrote in a 1935 magazine article:

“The trend of opinion among eugenists is that we must make marriage more difficult. Certainly no one who is not a desirable parent should be permitted to produce progeny. A century from now it will no more occur to a normal person to mate with a person eugenically unfit than to marry a habitual criminal.”
