British Schoolboy Youngest 'Fusioneer' Ever

Here’s a short video from the BBC which features the achievement of a 13 year-old British schoolboy, Jamie Edwards, who became the youngest person ever to build a nuclear fusion reactor. He was awarded a grant of $3,350 from his school, Penwortham Priory Academy, in Preston, England to build his reactor.

His blog which chronicles his work on the reactor and shows pictures of the project in various stages of assembly can be read here.
