Wardenclyffe Tower

Also known as the Tesla Tower was designed and built by Nikola Tesla in NY. Tesla intended to transmit messages, telephony and even facsimile images across the Atlantic to England and to ships at sea based on his theories of using the Earth to conduct the signals.

He wanted to advance the tower and intended to use the tower to supply wireless energy to the entire planet. J.P Morgan, the project’s primary backer, refused the plan and the project was eventually abandoned.

Long-Lost Nikola Tesla Drawings Reveal Map To Multiplication
A recently discovered set of original Nikola Tesla drawings reveal a map to multiplication that contains all numbers in a simple to use system. The drawings were discovered at an antique shop in central Phoenix Arizona by local artist, Abe Zucca. They are believed to have been created during the last years of Tesla’s Free Energy lab, Wardenclyffe. The manuscript is thought to contain many solutions to unanswered questions about mathematics.

Another artificially-lit scene from Nikola Tesla’s Wardenclyffe laboratory, which is sadly the legendary inventor’s last standing research facility.  It’s pitch-black in here, so this was a mix of placed lanterns and LED panels and light painting with both tungsten and daylight balanced torches.  In a stroke of awesomeness, an internet comic from comedian “The Oatmeal” led to a Kickstarter campaign to purchase this site - which currently holds Superfund designation - and turn it into a Tesla museum.  It raised a very-much-unexpected $1.3 million, and the site was successfully purchased.  Chalk one up for grassroots preservationists!

I wrote this little comic about a year ago. It’s called Wardenclyffe and it’s about a small town where a bunch of weird things happen to a bunch of kids. I’ve been trying to get it made into something bigger since then but haven’t had much luck, so if you like it an know a publisher that’s looking for an all ages book about weird science stuff and growing up let me know. It’s drawn by Toro Diego, colored by Kóte Carvajal, and lettered by Greg Sorkin. These guys took an idea I had and made it something amazing. I’m finally posting this now because this is going to be the year I break into comics come hell or high water and I’ve got to start somewhere.

REVIVE WARDENCLYFFE!!!

Last year the folks at the Tesla Science Center, with the help of The Oatmeal, successfully funded an indiegogo campaign to save the last remaining property on earth that was once a laboratory for Nikola Tesla: Wardenclyffe (the site where he was developing the broadcast energy tower). They have now secured the property to preserve for future generations as a monument to the amazing accomplishments of Nikola Tesla. But there is a LOT of work to be done.

In honor of Tesla’s 157th birthday (on July 10th) they have launched a new fundraising effort to raise money in order to restore Wardenclyffe to its former glory.

Please click on this link and donate to the TSC… Every little bit helps (as the previous campaign showed) and you are helping preserve Nikola Tesla’s legacy for generations to come!

Serbian president unveils Nikola Tesla monument in New York

The president of Serbia unveiled a monument to Nikola Tesla in New York state on Monday, marking the latest milestone in a long-running campaign to raise the profile of the cult scientist and inventor around the world.

Tomislav Nikolic told the crowd at Tesla’s former Wardenclyffe laboratory in Long Island that the scientist was a man whose “ideas were larger than his time”, in a ceremony that also served as an opportunity for the Serbian president to remind the world of Tesla’s nationality.
