Did you know that a US teen built a working nuclear reactor in his basement for $3…


What were you doing as a hobby on the weekends while you were in high school? Most were in sports or extra-curricular activities. Some of us could have been working a part time job at the local grocery store. Well that story is not the same for Michigan native Thiago Olsen.


Olsen decided instead of throwing a ball or acting in a play, he was going to build a nuclear fusion bomb in the basement of his home. For two years, he worked on getting the tools necessary for this project from sources such as the hardware store and even Ebay. Even though he doesn’t have as much time for it now due to joining activities, he has made progress on this project. He had succeeded in having a small blaze of hot plasma, which is around 200 million degrees. Although it is not enough to generate commercial size power, it is an eye opener to the physicist world. Who knows what could come next from kids like Olsen as they grow and learn more to help our world.
