Last week, to commemorate Nikola Tesla’s 158th birthday, the media made much of the million dollar contribution by Elon Musk (he who appropriated Tesla’s name for his electronic car company) to help transform the Serbian-born scientist’s Wardenclyffe Labs, located in Shoreham on the north shore of Long Island, into the Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe.

But few in the media actually explored exactly what Wardenclyffe was and what, nearly a century after its famous tower was dismantled, it would be turned into to. Until now. Here’s my exploration on the Huffington Post of the present and future of Wardenclyffe.
