From the Ted Talk by Taylor Wilson: Yup, I built a nuclear fusion reactor

Unscramble the Blue Letters

Now most of you are probably saying, well there's no such thing as nuclear fusion. I don't see any nuclear power plants with fusion energy. Well it doesn't break even. It doesn't produce more energy out than I put in, but it still does some pretty cool stuff. And I assembled this in my garage, and it now lives in the piyshcs department of the University of Nevada, Reno. And it smlas together deuterium, which is just hydrogen with an etrxa neutron in it. So this is similar to the reaction of the proton chain that's going on inside the Sun. And I'm salimnmg it together so hard that that heyrdgon fuses together, and in the process it has some byproducts, and I utilize those brpdtuyocs.

Now most of you are probably saying, well there's no such thing as nuclear fusion. I don't see any nuclear power plants with fusion energy. Well it doesn't break even. It doesn't produce more energy out than I put in, but it still does some pretty cool stuff. And I assembled this in my garage, and it now lives in the physics department of the University of Nevada, Reno. And it slams together deuterium, which is just hydrogen with an extra neutron in it. So this is similar to the reaction of the proton chain that's going on inside the Sun. And I'm slamming it together so hard that that hydrogen fuses together, and in the process it has some byproducts, and I utilize those byproducts.
