Campaign to Save Nikola Tesla’s Lab Reaches Goal
2012 08 24

From: ActivistPost.com

Six days ago we posted a link in our Forum to a campaign that was issued in order to raise enough money to purchase Nikola Tesla’s laboratory now up for sale at Wardenclyffe. A non-profit is seeking to raise $850,000 in order to match a grant of the same amount by the State of New York to secure the $1.6 million property and keep it out of the hands of a potential real estate developer who has put in an offer that might erase the site and legacy of a genius whose inventions transformed our world.

The Guardian reported that in the first couple days of the campaign issued by comic creator of The Oatmeal, Matthew Inman, that $500,000 had been raised in the effort. The $1.6 million total price secures the land only, but the hope is to raise even more in order to build a Nikola Tesla Science Center.

The latest update for this campaign is incredible: the total donated with 37 days still remaining in the campaign has surpassed the initial goal and now stands at $988,769 according to the donation website due to the massive online fundraising effort. There has been no official announcement yet about when the purchase will proceed, but we will continue to issue updates. For now, it appears that solid grassroots activism has secured a piece of history.

Please watch the video below for some recent news coverage, then DONATE HERE if you have it in your budget to help save a very important part of the history of technology, and hopefully present a new repository of information for people to learn more about this largely forgotten inventor, his amazing work, and his tragic story as he fell prey to corporate power brokers.
