    This is amazingly awesome news!

    Does this mean we’re going to recover ALL of Tesla’s notes? To publish them, & stash them in the museum?

    (Including his, ahem, discussions with Einstein?)

       A good question.  I wonder what his written work still exists and who has them.  Plus, will they be available to the general public and those working on this historical period?  Will this museum be an archive as well, in other words.

    • There is already a Tesla museum in Belgrade. It has all his writings and notes. http://www.tesla-museum.org/meni_en.htm

      “In 1951, in accordance with Tesla’s last wish, Mr. Kosanovic transferred all the documents and Tesla’s personal things in Belgrade [...] It possesses several exceptionally valuable collections:

      - above 160 000 original documents,
      - above 2000 books and journals,
      - above 1200 historical technical exhibits, 
      - above 1500 photographs and photo plates 
      - above 1000 plans and drawings.”

    And I helped. But more important than that is the contributions of Tesla can hopefully inspire others to MAKE wonderful things.

    The important question is, of course: “How will Charles Carreon react?”

    The next fundraiser should be to get it operational.

    Congrats!  I hope they play nice with the folks who wanted it to make a movie. That’s still a great idea, and surely would be terrific for the museum.

    I wonder if Tesla Motors gave any money.

    I wonder if all of the sections of the museum will be able to be divided by threes….
