Another story on fusion. This time a young kid who built a plasma reactor in his garage. I watched the video. Inspiring and over the top at the same time. But, he got to meet the president of the USA. I am sure he has a futue as a scientist and inventor of some note. We do not have many examples for young kids of scientific heros. Playing in a rock band and smoking dope is pretty tame compared to building a nuclear fusion reactor and a lot less risky.
