Elon Musk is officially classier than Steve Jobs ever could have been. Bring back the spirit of Tesla, indeed. I wonder if he’s going to remake Wardenclyffe Tower, but in a bright, shiny, well-designed, non-commie-zapping (anyone remember Red Alert) form factor?
Last month, cartoonist The Oatmeal (or, as his momma named him, Matthew Inman) publicly reached out to Elon Musk and asked for help in his mission to build a museum dedicated to Nikola Tesla.
At 2 A.M. the next morning, Elon responded. “I would be happy to help”, he tweeted.
Two month later (on Nikola Tesla’s birthday, no less!), we now know what Elon’s help looks like: a cool million bucks.
According to a blog post by Inman, Musk called him up last week and pledged two things:
- A Tesla supercharger would be built just outside of the museum, making the museum a part of his nationwide Tesla recharging network.
- A million dollars for the development/construction of the museum
Happy birthday, Nikola Tesla!
