Something happened today that has not happened for a long, long time since I know the Internet. I was seriously bedazzled. Totally speechless. I read through complex scientific texts for hours, understanding less than half, and still wondered if all this is just a big fat joke.

Fact is, I found a blog of a guy who claims to have done nuclear fusion at his home … a star in a jar, including a 200 million degree plasma. And now he attempts to build a fusion reactor, at home. And there are several other hobbyists, approx. 24 worlwide [source], who also achieved nuclear fusion at home. I have read about home-made electron microscopes etc., and that would not be stunning to me any more … but nuclear fusion? This is so awfully crazy … hope he succeeds with the reactor 🙂

See for yourself:
