Teenage Genius Designs Smaller, Safer Nuclear Power Plant

For decades, environmentalists have told us we need to reduce our dependance on oil and coal, while at the same time, they resist the use of nuclear power–the one thing that could free the U.S. from its dependance on fossil fuels. That could be about to change, thanks to a teenaged genius named Taylor Wilson, who became the youngest person ever to create nuclear fusion at the age of 14. Wilson, now age 19, has designed a safer, smaller nuclear power plant that he says could reduce the risks of negative environmental impact and produce safer nuclear energy.

“Its assembly-line construction, 30-year fuel life and low usage cost make Wilson’s reactor an ideal source of electricity for both developing nations and space explorers,” the young scientist told Fox News.
