Tesla peeks out the door of the Colorado Springs laboratory, early summer 1899

Colorado Springs Experimental Station

In 1899 Nikola Tesla made his third visit to Colorado and this time stayed for about 6 months in Colorado Springs. He built a laboratory there he called his “Experimental Station” and did some of his most successful and impressive work. The artificial lightning he created while in Colorado held the world's record as the largest ever created for more that 100 years.
