Youngest Person in the world to create Nuclear Fusion

Taylor Wilson is the 31st person to privately (without government or industry funding) create nuclear fusion. He did it at the age of 14 making him the youngest person to ever achieve nuclear fusion. The story of Taylor’s journey toward achieving his dream was covered by Popsci. It’s a great read and I highly recommend checking out the article.  Taylor’s journey includes turning his parents garage into a radioactive laboratory, family vacations to Nevada to prospect for uranium, and the fun aspects of traveling through the airport with 60 lbs of bomb fragments and radioactive material. You can read the article here and you can even check out Taylor’s website.
