Tesla’s Electricity


The New York Hall of Science recently opened an exhibit on the often-referenced, under-appreciated scientist and inventor, Nikola Tesla. Born in 1853 in Serbia, Tesla is known for harnessing the power of cross-currents through what is now known as the Tesla coil. The exhibition in Queens, NY honors the forward-thinking scientist, with the famed Tesla coil, induction motors, a model of the Adams’ power station on Niagra Falls, and many more models and photographs of Tesla’s experimentations and laboratories, on view through October 20.
