17 year old teenager builds homemade fusion reactor

A 17 year old teenager from Michigan, who wanted to win a science fair, decided to build a fusion reactor in his basement… talk about overkill!

The project was no easy task, and required over 1000 hours for research and design (that’s over 2 months and a half of studying and planning if he spent all of his awaken time doing research for it). How did he managed to get the parts he needed for it? Well, from eBay of course!

Now I don’t know what’s most surprising, the fact that it was a 17 year old that made a device that can fuse two hydrogen atoms together, or the fact that you can get the pieces for it from eBay.
