there is a movement online called homebrew reactors. The hardest part is obtaining the fissionable material.

Well good on him. When I was 14 I was more concerned with getting laid, I can only wonder what I might have accomplished if not for women. ;-)

It`s a FUSION reactor guys. Not a FISSION reactor. The Iranians aren`t trying to do anything with fusion.

Looks like this kid has a better head on his shoulders than David Hahn, the so-called "Nuclear Boy Scout". In 1994, Hahn was building his own nuclear reactor at age 17, but after it started throwing out too much radiation he tried to dismantle it and ended up getting caught. The shed where he`d done his experiments was so radioactive that it was eventually declared a Superfund site.

This all got him much press, including a TV documentary.

Skip forward to 2007, and Hahn got arrested for stealing smoke detectors, one of the sources of radioactive materials he`d used before. This time he apparently had radiation burns and had to be treated for radiation exposure. He got 90 days in jail after treatment was completed.

I`m guessing his family had the money to supply him through all of this? I mean, building a nuclear fu­cking reactor can`t be cheap.

I was a smart kid too, but my family never had the money to supply my hobbies.

It always puzzles me when people on here are being dicks to kids, especially kids that are really doing something amazing. Are you that passive aggressive that you also need to bully kids? I mean really.

"to be honest with the internet nowadays, and the information readily available, this is ALL that amazing more difficult that building it, would be getting hands on the resources. "

It would be amazing if you could use the internet to form an understandable paragraph.

Remember the scene in Serenity(the movie)with River Tam as a child in school? Remember the slick and fancy lies they were forcing upon her and how she rejected them? These TED productions are the same man-made bull. I wish the general population could wake up and realize slick things in shiny packages are mostly fake. Pure brainwashing if ever there was...as you were.

Pff please. I discovered masturbation at the age of five.
Noting I could build with the rusty ancient farm equipment we had when I was growing up. People are products of environment. Mine happened to contain a few poorly hidden porn mags from the 70s.

So in conclusion he has some rich parents, who probably did most of the work.

HolyGod: That`s ironic, because your post is rather self-fellating.

Really, no comments yet, this must be fresh. Smart kid I`d say. I hope the zionists dont get him for thinking up ways to do things in a much more simplistic manner and saving billions!
