Mark Twain In Tesla’s Lab

Written by: George Chittenden : 21 Jul 2019

This interesting photo shows the 19th century literary giant Mark Twain tinkering in the laboratory of the great inventor, Nikola Tesla. The photo was taken in the spring of 1894, by Century Magazine for an article they published. The writer we know as Mark Twain is holding Tesla's experimental vacuum lamp, which is powered by a loop of wire which is receiving electromagnetic energy from a Tesla coil.

In the background Tesla's face is visible. Mark Twain was of course a pen name, the writer’s real name was Samuel Langhorne Clemens. The American writer penned at least thirty novels during his lifetime, including The Adventures of Tom Sawyer and its sequel, the Adventures of Huckleberry Finn.
