Michigan Teen Creates Fusion Device

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
