On this day in 1917, the sound of explosions were heard in Shoreham NY. Sadly, these were not celebratory fireworks. They were explosive charges detonated to destroy Nikola Tesla's tower at Wardenclyffe. With its collapse came the destruction of a dream, one intended to help the whole world.
This excerpt from the award-winning documentary “Tower to the People” features Nikola Tesla’s grand-nephew William Terbo, and esteemed Tesla Biographer Marc J. Seifer.
