1899: Nikola Tesla in his laboratory Chris August 17, 2012 1800-1899, Science & technology 8 CommentsFavourited 503 times Add to favourites 8 Responses Lucretia August 18, 2012 Ive always wondered what marvels we’d have if Edison had worked with Tesla rather than against him. Reply vorvorvorgestern August 18, 2012 Tesla wasn’t the tough guy he seems to be on these images (at least not that tough), which are multiple exposures. A great Idea! Reply Ferlin August 18, 2012 How cool is that? Reply kingtiger666 August 18, 2012 Just an average tuesday night for Nikola Tesla. Reply Kaitlyn August 18, 2012 Brave fella, to be sitting under all that. Reply Alan Bickerstaff August 20, 2012 Matthew Inman (of Oatmeal Comic fame) has recently been doing a sterling job restoring Tesla’s status in the public eye. He’s currently running an appeal to raise money to buy the original site of his laboratory – Wardenclyffe Tower – and restore it as a museum. For anyone unsure as to Tesla’s contribution to science (and how he was treated by Edison in the process), this Oatmeal comic http://theoatmeal.com/comics/tesla sums it up nicely. For appeal details see http://theoatmeal.com/blog/tesla_museum This appeal raised $400,000 in the first 20 hours of it’s launch online! Reply Alan Bickerstaff August 20, 2012 A practical, and fun, application of Tesla Coils. Any Lynyrd Skynyrd fans out there? http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bbLshnfu0wY Reply aw October 2, 2012 it was the only way to keep edison at bay Reply Leave a Reply Cancel Reply Your email address will not be published.
