Schoolboy Creates Nuclear Fusion?

Recommended Posts

A Farnsworth fusion device is an amazingly simple device. It's pretty easy to build if you have access to vacuum equipment (either proper vacuum chambers or glass blowing equipment if you are adventurous) and can buy the rare deuterium gas needed to fuel it.

This type of device really does cause nuclear fusion, and the radiation is detectable. However, the very concept cannot scale to anything other than the tiniest power levels, so it's pretty much inherently safe (and completely useless other than as a demonstration, or laboratory source of neutron radiation).

What an impressive young man. I wish they had spent more time interviewing him instead of the other people hogging the limelight. It is not often you see teenagers with that raw enthusiasm given any publicity.
