    Hi

    I don't know whether this is known already.
    I recently watched the movie Tomorrowland and this sign caught my attention :tongue: :

    There is a quick back quarter end shot of an S in the movie "Kingsman" on Netflix. Had to rewind to make sure! Great spy spoof movie with Samuel L Jackson as well.

    Thats referring to Tesla the person. Within the lore of the movie, Nikola Tesla is one of the founders of Tomorrowland (along with Edison, Verne and Eiffel). So the station is named after the man.

    Towards the end of the movie you see some people in a car factory and it looks a bit like Tesla type stuff but when I paused it and squinted I think I saw a GM logo.

    The movie was promoted by GM. The Volt was the promotional vehicle. I just hope the point of the movie wasn't lost. 2°C. We are at 1.84 and rising to my understanding! Hence, Tesla motor's mission statement.
