    Ive always wondered what marvels we’d have if Edison had worked with Tesla rather than against him.

    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!
