What is Thanks to Tesla and why is it important?
Thanks to Tesla is Tesla Science Center at Wardenclyffe’s Annual Fund Drive to support our mission: to establish a global center on the site of Nikola Tesla’s only remaining laboratory that will preserve, restore, and advance Tesla’s legacy of invention and perseverance through education and innovation.
We chose Thanks to Tesla for a name because it spotlights Tesla’s many contributions to humanity. Every day, we benefit from technology developed by Tesla. Thanks to Tesla, we have wi-fi and remote control, radio, x-ray, fluorescent and neon lighting, the speedometer, and many other innovations. Thanks to Tesla, we also have the alternating current (AC) system that runs our modern power grid and virtually every electric device we use.
Thanks to Tesla is important because of our mission’s far-reaching impact. Together, we can empower people through education and innovation in a way that transforms lives in the present and future.
