    Hello,

    If there was a Tesla coil in space and it would be activated, would the electricity make it move?

    To first or second order, no. But there would be some radiation (the coil would constitute an alternating dipole), and the associated radiation pressure would make it move. It would probably be the most inefficient method of propulsion, but it would get the coil to move.
