16 Year old kid bulids fusion reactor
A very inspirational story, and a very interesting kid, 16 yo
Taylor Wilson.


Here's a sample from the original article ...

"...Taylor would transform the family's garage into a mysterious, glow-in-the-dark cache of rocks and metals and liquids with unimaginable powers. Before he would conceive, in a series of unlikely epiphanies, new ways to use neutrons to confront some of the biggest challenges of our time: cancer and nuclear terrorism. Before he would build a reactor that could hurl atoms together in a 500-million-degree plasma core-becoming, at 14, the youngest individual on Earth to achieve nuclear fusion."

...

"As Taylor stirred the toxic urine sample, holding the clicking Geiger counter over it, inspiration took hold. He peered into the swirling yellow center, and the answer shone up at him, bright as the sun. In fact, it was the sun-or, more precisely, nuclear fusion, the process (defined by Einstein as E=mc2) that powers the sun. By harnessing fusion-the moment when atomic nuclei collide and fuse together, releasing energy in the process-Taylor could produce the high-energy neutrons he would need to irradiate materials for medical isotopes. Instead of creating those isotopes in multimillion-dollar cyclotrons and then rushing them to patients, what if he could build a fusion reactor small enough, cheap enough and safe enough to produce isotopes as needed, in every hospital in the world?"

Yes, he built a fusion reactor, of course.

We can make Gold in Labs today. Its expensive and it takes lots of radiation from a reactor.

The Ancients knew how to do it safe and on the cheap.

even that was fission that the boy scout made... easier to control than a FUSION reaction.. a fusion reaction is basically creating the sun.

But you dismiss what is right before you !

The very same stone that will turn a low metal like Lead into Gold, will also raise a low man spirit to the level of Gold.

The Stone is the Elixir or Life and Universal Panacea while at the same time it is the Powder of Projection.

 Quoting: Roentgen®


Just read the story. Its from a very credible source. I know the difference between fusion and fission. I'm still sceptical as to the magitude of his "reactor". I doubt it was fusion but that is what the source says.

I don't think it would have much on the ITER. However there are usefull things you can extract from the story.

You were very quick to put up a facepalm pic. But buddy... read the story first. This displays your ignorance and foolishness.
It's just a ride....
