This year’s Tesla Day Guest Speaker was Dr Igor Bray, Distinguished Professor in Physics from Curtin University. Igor talked about theoretical physicists and the place Tesla has among them. Having a theoretical physics as an after-dinner topic is very challenging task for most of the people. However Igor used a serious of entertaining video clips and to illustrate main points in his presentation and made this highly scientific topic extremely interesting and enjoyable for all.
One of the highlights of the night and enormous pleasure for all guests was appearance of talented, award winning Australian singer and actress Ms Ursula Yovich. Ursula’s Serbian-Aboriginal background has fit nicely into the Tesla theme and celebration. She sang four songs and the audience was simply blown away with her beautiful voice and extraordinary performance!
