Say Hello to Wesley Crusher, Ladies and Gentlemen!!

This just makes me feel old, and proud at the same time.

Of course, the muppets on BBC TV news announced that he had split the atom and created a fission reactor. It's most likely some sort of fusor. Anyway, pretty impressive for his agel.

I created a nuclear reactor when I was 7, made it out of cereal boxes and toilet roll tubes and some felt tips. Worked perfectly.

Maybe he should consider working in the North Korean or Iranian nuclear program.

I think that's a hoax. Fusion, whether hot or cold results in a hell of radiation. As you can't install lead walls several feet thick in a classroom, it's in my opinion unbelievable that such an event ever took place.

Apparently his youth is the big story. He beat out the previous record holder, who was 14.
