Kid makes nuclear fusion in his basement November 22, 2006

Posted by Al in : science , trackback

Now apparently this is not too difficult to do, although it would be beyond me without some very good instructions. However the difficulty would not be my main worry, what happens is it goes wrong would be my main concern. I wonder what the parents were thinking when their son announced he was going to be carrying out fusion in their basement? If I was his father then I think I’d say “No” – in fact I know I’d say “No”. Nuclear fusion is not the kind of thing you want to get wrong as overdoing it coud cause some serious complications, such as no house or maybe even no neighbourhood. However this kid has done it, so fair play to him, although he still hasn’t found the way to have fusion without an ulitmate energy loss. If he could make an energy gain then he would be worth a fortune.
