Nikola Tesla. Ideas like lightning

//16/02/26

The Museu de les Ciències Príncep Felipe in Valencia has a new exhibition about Nikola Tesla, the visionary inventor and scientist. Ideas like lightning explores Tesla’s story and his contributions to science. More than 16 million entries on the internet about Tesla show us the enormous interest in his work and the impact it has had on our modern life. His work includes the design of the modern alternating current (AC) electricity supply system, early versions of x-rays and pioneering work in the world of radio.

Ideas like lightning will have activities, guided visits and feature the museum’s spectacular Tesla coil in its electricity theatre. The exhibition opens to the public from 10 March 2016 and you can find more information here on the museum’s web page
