Tesla Museum

For those of you that haven’t participated yet, it is my humble opinion that Babbage absolutely MUST support this project in a huge way:

In short, a nonprofit organization wants to buy the land that used to be Wardenclyffe (where Tesla’s lab used to be) and turn it into a museum for Nikola Tesla.

As of this writing they’re just shy of $1M after only a few days. My contribution is already in.

    My Other World person has also made a contribution.  Most worthy cause.

    I heard a radio report about this.  I think they have the funds and are in the process of making an offer to the real estate developer who owns the property.

    Indeed, they had already surpassed their initial aim when I visited the site.  Excellent to see.  They will need further funding, of course, once they have the land.

    There was a charming comment by team member jalcorn: “Did you notice that the final tally can be divided evenly by 3? Tesla‚Äôs favorite number at play!”
