Tesla Technology Research was recently contracted to design and build a second one-to-one scale copy of the famous Griffith Park Observatory Tesla Coil.  Dubbed the GPO-2 coil, this second copy of the original GPO coil was commissioned by Richard and Mary-Ellen Mathias on behalf of the Mid America Science Museum (MASM), in Hot Springs, Arkansas.

The grand opening for this new permanent museum display is slated for November 20, 2002. This coil will be installed on the main museum floor exhibit area, in a custom designed Faraday Cage.  The following images were taken during the construction stage of this project.  The entire system was constructed, tested, and shipped in less then 60 days.
