Did you read that the property of Nikola Tesla was just purchased to build a museum ?
A crowd-sourcing campaign and years of negotiation has finally successful at purchasing the property where Nikola Tesla's laboratory was located. You can read the details at The Oatmeal.
He seems to be a favorite here on Woot. At least if you look at shirt.woot !
They have some exciting ideas for the museum. This will be a long process as there are "new" old buildings filled w/ asbestos that must be torn down, and the building that housed his old lab is in very poor condition. I do think that science and history of science museums are fantastic tools for kids to get them interested in the field. They are also nice for those adults who enjoy learning.
The long battle to get the property is won. Best to those who persevered on this project. Wishing them luck as they move forward.
To note : they may have a fun event this summer w/ guided tours of the property.Details at The Oatmeal.
