Tesla Roadster,  http://www.teslamotors.com/

More good old American design, built on a crazy Russians good name!

Nikola Tesla was an ethnic Serb born in Croatia. But OCKS message is clear..... American innovation is based on immigrant sweat.

Tesla, Einstein, Von Braun, Alexander Graham Bell, Zworykin, Teller, etc. Many of this countries greatest innovators were direct immigrants. Going to take some public investment to continue to be the world leader in STEM.

View of the Installation near Sychëvka, Moskovskaya Oblast' (Russia)

You are of course correct as to where Tesla was born. His university studies spanned a couple of countries, but in the end Russia was the country that actually put their money on the man. Of all the countries to receive Tesla's proposal for sending electric power through the atmosphere (without poles or wires) the greatest interest came from the Soviet Union. In 1937 Tesla presented a plan to the Amtorg Trading Corporation, an alleged Soviet arms front in New York City. Two years later, in 1939, one stage of the plan was tested in the USSR and Tesla received a check for $25,000. It's a shame that we didn't recognize his genius before he died in relative poverty in a hotel suite in New York City.
