High School Student Builds Nuclear Fusion Reactor

Wow, check this out. A high school student has built a nuclear fusion reactor. Maybe he can make the next Back-to-the-Future car…

High school student Thiago Olson has gone beyond basic physics class. Way beyond. Using parts and materials scrounged from the local hardware story and eBay, Olson built a working fusion reactor. In November 2006, a few tiny bubbles in his neutron dosimeter told him that he’d achieved success: Fusing hydrogen nuclei into helium.
