Meet the youngest person on Earth to achieve nuclear fusion. Taylor Wilson built his first bomb when he was 10 years old. Four years later, he became the thirty-second person on Earth to ever build a working nuclear fusion reactor. (via io9)
This profile on Taylor Wilson over at Popsci is absolutely fascinating. Excellent read, probably one of my favorite articles they’ve written. He kind of reminds me of Val Kilmer’s character (Chris Knight) from the movie ‘Real Genius’. So many high fives to his parents for being all shades of awesome in raising an amazing kid.
