Nicola Tesla's last big lab, Wardenclyffe, has been saved from developers who were going to pretty much plow it under.
The Oatmeal spearheaded the effort and it should be noted that this is just a beginning. Still, the immediate threat is past and what's next is the effort to clean up/fix up and develop a museum. Given that Tesla appeals to everyone from hard-core science geeks to the seriously tinfoil of hat, hopes are high!
But if they rebuild the tower and Siberia suffers another "meteorite impact?" Ummmm... Coincidence. Right? Sure.
