Tesla had a striking, unusual frame, standing a whopping 6 ft 2 inches tall but weighing a mere 142 pounds. He was an elegant and stylish figure, meticulous in his grooming. His hands were said to be enormous with bizarrely large thumbs and his distinct, wedge shaped head was said to typically bare a wickedly intense stare. Certainly his scientific accomplishments are what matters in the end, but all of these factors certainly “sheds light” on why Tesla gained such celebrity over the course of his lifetime… See what we did there???
