Elon Musk, the billionaire owner of Tesla Motors, is giving $1 million to the Tesla Science Center in  New York which is dedicated to preserving the legacy of the inventor who inspired the name of Musk's company.

The museum announced Musk's donation on what would have been Nikola Tesla's 158th birthday.

The museum said Musk will also install a Tesla supercharging station.

The museum is being built on the 16-acre site of Tesla's Wardenclyffe laboratory in Shoreham, Long Island. The Serbian scientist began an unfinished project there to send messages and electricity around the world wirelessly.

Musk co-founded PayPal and also runs space contractor SpaceX. His donation comes after a request from Tesla fan and museum backer Matthew Inman of TheOatmeal.com.
