Congratulations SATYA SHARMA: Wardenclyffe Brick Recipient
Our warmest thanks and congratulations to supporter Satya Sharma, winner of an original brick from Wardenclyffe laboratory! The names of all Gala guests were entered in a random drawing to receive a brick that was recently reclaimed during renovations to the chimney. The circa 1901 brick is a special piece of history that symbolizes Wardenclyffe’s permanence and the enduring strength of Tesla’s legacy.
