Nikola Tesla museum fundraising reaches $700,000
One of the unsung heroes of science and technology, Nikola Tesla has become a cult hero for the next generation of science enthusiasts. This cult status and Tesla’s achievements have lead to an online fundraising campaign entitled ‘Operation let’s build a goddamn Tesla museum’. The campaign, devised by web comic ‘The Oatmeal’, and associated non-for-profit aims to purchase Tesla’s Wardenclyffe laboratory in shoreham, New York. If the campaign is successful the laboratory would be gradually redeveloped into the first US Tesla museum.
