In November 2009, Exploratorium After Dark welcomed particle physicist Dr. Austin Richards—aka Dr. MegaVolt. Under the Palace of Fine Arts rotunda, he jousted with a high-voltage Tesla coil, which generated 200,000 volts of electricity and shot 14-foot-long arcs of lightning through the air. This electrifying After Dark event featured Austin Richards, Ph.D.—aka, Dr. MegaVolt®—jousting with 14-foot electrical arcs from his high-voltage Tesla coil on the evening of Thursday, November 5, 2009. This wonderful performance contributed to the celebration of the Exploratorium’s 40th Anniversary.
