Crowd funding campaign for Tesla museum goes viral | AAAS MemberCentral

Good news guys !

If Nikola Tesla only knew the extent of his popularity today, he would scarcely believe it. In life, though he was well known, he didn’t receive all the credit he deserved for his inventions. Among many other accomplishments, the Serbian-born Tesla is known for the Tesla coil and for inventing alternating current, which was used to light up the 1893 World’s Fair in Chicago. He worked at one time for Thomas Edison. Later, with George Westinghouse, he harnessed the power of Niagara Falls with the first hydroelectric plant.
