Tesla's Wardenclyffe Tower laboratory. Illustration of the planned appearance of the Wardenclyffe Tower, built for Serb-US physicist and electrical engineer Nikola Tesla (1856-1943) on Long Island, New York, USA, from 1901. It was intended for Tesla's wireless transmission experiments, intended to compete with the system invented by Marconi. However, Tesla was unable to find sufficient investment and funds, and the project was abandoned. The tower was demolished in 1917. The site was purchased in 2013, with plans to build a museum dedicated to Tesla and his achievements.
