He's smart, but he's got it a bit easier than people in the past with this internet thing and some aspects of nuclear science being part of the
public domain which it wasn't years ago. The fission reactors are a part of that. It's also a branch of the same process that should be developed
for thorium reactors.
Fusion is probably out there too. There are a couple of known (but horribly inefficient) fusor designs that are published. (Limited in use, as those
take in more energy than they make.) There's also some interesting stuff by teens or 20-somethings in the Russian Tesla Club on YouTube that may have
solved half the fusion problem, but they're more interested in ball lightning - so they're using non-fusable gases and don't have the proper
containment they'd need. Unfortunately it seems most of their documented methods are a bit more hap-hazzard than scientific. There's also three
companies out there I found on the net with a good hint that they have working reactors (you don't float on speculators alone for 20 years afaik,
particularly when you're not advertizing on alt-energy scene), but they're subcontracted out to Lockheed Martin and/or Northrop. We're not going to
be seeing their goodies out in the open for a long time. (Yes they have a fairly good description on their websites, but I think they're not 404'd
because the gov't doesn't expect people to take them seriously.)
So if this kid is smart as everyone says, hopefully he knows where to find the "Legos" and manages to put them together.
