**Nikola Tesla was the father of the electric age. Despite having
drop-kicked humanity into a second industrial revolution, up until recently
he's been an unsung hero in history books. If you don't know who Tesla is,
go read this <http://theoatmeal.com/comics/tesla>.

Tesla's final laboratory is located in the sleepy town of Shoreham, New
York. It's known as Wardenclyffe and it's where Tesla attempted to build a
tower that would provide free wireless energy to the entire earth.
Unfortunately, Tesla lost his funding before the project was completed and
in 1917 the Wardenclyffe tower was demolished. Subsequently, the land was
sold to a film and paper manufacturer.****


However, the land, laboratory, and foundation beneath the tower are still
there and very recently went up for sale. And right now a non-profit is
trying to buy the property and turn it into a Nikola Tesla Museum. The
property is listed at $1.6 million, and this non-profit has received a
matching grant from New York State of up to $850k. This means that *if we
can raise $850k, New York State will match us for that same amount --
putting the total raised at $1.7 million.* ****
