Elon Musk Donating $1m to Nikola Tesla Museum, Plans to Build Supercharger Station in Parking Lot

Words cannot describe the one-and-only Elon Musk. The man is a genius and a great visionary who recently made a superb gesture toward a noble cause. I don't know if you've heard of Matthew Inman, but after you read this, you will have great respect for him, too.


 

The artist behind the web comic The Oatmeal is struggling to buy the deserted Nikola Tesla laboratory and turn it into a museum honouring the inventor. And the great Tesla Motors founder, Elon Musk, is going to help make that happen.

So far, Inman is doing well. He has raised more than $1.37 million through his crowdfunding campaign, “Let’s Build a Goddamn Tesla Museum,” and has secured an $850,000 donation from the government of New York state. But since he still has a long way to go, he chose to write to Mr. Musk and kindly ask for financial aid.


 

The cartoonist did this in his own quirky way, of course. He followed up a recently published cartoonist review of Tesla's Model S electric car with a second review, in which he asks Musk to contribute the full $8 million required for the completion and opening of the Tesla Museum.


 

Elon Musk was quick to answer the polite request and tweeted

 


 

Musk has agreed to donate, but not the full amount-- his donation will be a total of $1 million. Matthew Inman also got to speak to Elon Musk, and apart from the $1 million museum donation, Musk promised to build a Tesla Supercharger station for electric vehicles in the museum's parking lot, The Oatmeal published on its blog.
