The billionaire proprietor of Tesla Motors is giving $1 million to a big apple museum dedicated to preserving the legacy of the inventor who inspired its name.

The Tesla Science middle announced Elon Musk’s donation on what would have been Nikola Tesla’s 158th birthday.

The museum stated Thursday that Musk may also install a Tesla supercharging station.

The museum is being built on the 16-acre site of Tesla’s Wardenclyffe laboratory in Shoreham, Manhattan. The Serbian scientist started an unfinished undertaking there to send messages and electrical energy around the globe wirelessly.

Tesla is known for his work with alternating present and experiments with X-rays.

Musk co-founded paypal and also runs house contractor Space. His donation comes after a request from Tesla fan and museum backer Matthew Inman of theoatmeal.com.
