Sean M Elliott Tesla: Death Rays & Elephants!

Rough Science

Sean M Elliott Tesla: Death Rays & Elephants!

Come on a journey through the electric and eccentric genius of Nikola Tesla, the man who invented the 20th Century!

Marvel at a sparking Tesla Coil!

Mourn for Topsy the Elephant!

And mmm... marinate? multiply? *sigh* Alliterations are hard...

The eternally curious Sean M Elliott is a science communicator, writer and performer and tries really hard not to set himself on fire (mostly successfully).

After exploring the layers of the Onion of Knowledge in 2018, Sean is setting his sights on Nikola Tesla: the truths, the legends, and the bold-faced lies.

Watch as he catches lightning in a bottle! (sort of)

Wonder at the ethics of turn-of-the-century advertising practices!

Wobble as Sean unpacks electricity, how we use it and his inability to create a satisfying alliteration...

'An evening of educational silliness.' Squirrel Comedy

'Best experienced in person for its sheer wonder.'  Ice Moon Prison
