Elon Musk Pledges To Support Nikola Tesla Museum ProjectMatt Hardigree8/16/12 12:30pmFiled to: Nikola Teslaelon muskTesla Museumthe oatmeal49EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalink It was brought to my attention last night that The Oatmeal was trying to help turn Nikola Tesla's lab into a museum. At one point The Oatmeal's Matthew Inman tweeted Elon Musk — Tesla Motors CEO and Tesla fan — asking him if he'd like to help. I don't know how many people have the email addresses for both Elon Musk and Matthew Inman, but I know I am one of them and so I e-introduced them. Musk responded, stepping up and agreeing to help. Despite our sometimes strained relationship with the car company, Musk and Jalopnik actually agree on a number of important issues (McLaren F1s should be driven and space exploration is a necessity for the human race). We also agree that this project is important. The email from Inman to Musk is classic, so I've included the correspondence here: You can join Musk and (to a certainly much much lesser degree) us in supporting this endeavor. Also, consider this an open invite to Musk to talk about why Tesla is one of your heroes.
