Once Upon a Time at Tesla Science Center

June 22, 2020 7:43 PM | Stephen Pallotta (Administrator)


“A true legacy isn't what we build up to the heavens or carve deep into stone. Rocks will crumble, paper disintegrates, and bone turns to powder. Only that which isn't in the physical realm and reaches in both directions can be eternal. Our ideas. They are what we leave behind. And only they are what can push us forward.” - Nikola Tesla

On Saturday, June 20, 2020 the voice of Nikola Tesla could be heard once again on the grounds of his former laboratory. It was on this day, we screened The Current Wars: The Directors Cut as a Drive-In.Over 60 Vehicles gathered on the afternoon of the 20th, and roughly a quarter of them were Teslas!

A B-E-A-Utiful Day leading to a B-E-A-Utiful Night. Families and strangers, Tesla’s and ICE vehicles... all gathered while following social distancing guidelines to enjoy a night out. Not only were we entertained, but we were also educated on one of the most significant inventors of all time ( and I'm not talking about Edison ).

The Film was all about the epic war of the currents, and it all came to life on the big screen featuring Nikola Tesla, Thomas Edison, and George Westinghouse. Each one of them battling it out to determine AC over DC power and change history.

And change history they did, many inventions were covered in the film like: AC Current, the AC Motor, the incandescent light bulb, even a cameo of a little replica of the tower that would later be constructed, but also sadly torn down on the grounds at The Tesla Science Center.

Even though Tesla’s time ended at his former laboratory, with events like these (and turning the lab into a Future Museum), it is quickly turning into an eternal place. A place where his ideas converge. To spread Tesla’s Legacy, and to help move the world forward!
