Wallace, a baby-faced tennis player fresh out of Spanish Fork High School, had almost the entire physics faculty of Utah State University hovering (and arguing) over an apparatus he had cobbled together from parts salvaged from junk yards and charity drops.
The apparatus is nothing less than the sine qua non of modern science: a nuclear fusion reactor, based on the plans of Utah's own Philo Farnsworth, the inventor of television.

No sh!t! It works!

Great find, and just imagine. Everything depends on whose hands this kid ends up in.

I know this story.

Is this the kid that bought all the surplus smoke detectors for that radioactive material?

I guess I should read the story shouldn't I?

Whoops, wrong story.

There was a story out there about a year ago of a kid that was building a nuclear bomb out of junk.

He actually did. The DEA and the CIA swooped down on him.

But this story is even better, a fusion reactor!

Wonder if the kid is a mormon?

There was a thread around here recently about mormons.
