Nikola Tesla’s Lab Saved by Crowdfunding Group

It’s a long overdue tribute to one of the most brilliant scientists of the 19-20th century. The Tesla Science Center, a non-profit group, funded by crowdfunding donations, bought Nikola Tesla’s Wardenclyffe lab on Long Island and restore it to its former glory. Tesla is responsible for some of the most important discoveries if the 20th century, from which he received neither fame nor fortune for his efforts.

Despite his more frightening ideas, his concepts and inventions have made huge contributions to our everyday lives. Yet his legacy has been overshadowed by rivals like Thomas Edison and Guglielmo Marconi.
