No this is not satirical comic! It’s his lab in Colorado. Tesla played with lightning the way a cat plays with a ball of string. Sadly he was also nuttier than a fruitcake and died broke. The jury is still out on what might have been had he been sane and well funded. He might have given us all free renewable wireless electricity (which he was working on). On the other hand he probably could have done things that made Oppenheimer look like a chimp with a sliderule. (For example he MADE A DAMN EARTHQUAKE!) He really WAS the real deal.
