This 12-year-old built a nuclear reactor at home using equipment he found on eBay

That's not how it is for Jackson Oswalt though. Two years ago, the now 14-year-old achieved something even some of the most renowned scientists have been unable to: he carried out nuclear fusion, in his parent's garage in Texarkana, Ark.

"One day I had a sudden epiphany," wrote the teen on amateur physicist forum, Fusor. "I realized that I could be the absolute best at whatever video game, but in the end it still wouldn't mean much. I realized that, in the grand scheme of things, video games had no role to play."

It was at this point that he decided to dedicate himself to science and to pursue a new hobby — nuclear fusion.


If I may ...
If I may ...

Uh huh. This kid figured out something the brightest minds in the world have been trying to figure out for the last 50 years? That to this day still eludes? Sure.
