Typical kid builds fusion reactor in his house.

Teen builds working nuclear fusion reactor in Memphis home

This is the kid who likely screwed up the bell curve in school. I'd say there are good odds this kids goes on to d .some pretty cool stuff.

It looks like nobody has done it yet....let alone a kid. Perhaps he built his representation of a fusion machine.

The only way a high school kid could do it is if he has discovered some fundamental flaw in the theory surrounding nuclear science.

Fusion isn't all that hard to achieve. Continuous, over unity fusion is what isn't possible yet. I was wondering where he would have found deuterium, but I suppose you could obtain a minute amount of tritium from a glow in the dark watch or tv remote.
