+ - Michigan teen creates fusion device

Josh Lindenmuth writes: "The Detroit Free Press is reporting that Thiago Olson, a 17 year old Michigan teen, was able to create a small fusion device in his parents' basement. The machine uses a 40,000 volt charge and deuterium gas to create the small reaction, which he says looks like a "small intense ball of energy".

The teen's fusion device is obviously not a self-sustaining reactor, but it still shows how fusion technology is becoming more accessible. Hopefully this points to a future where large scale fusion reactors are both economical and widely used."

Work without a vision is slavery, Vision without work is a pipe dream, But vision with work is the hope of the world.
