Tale of the Radioactive Boy Scout

Recommended Posts

This is a story about a kid who, starting at 17 attempted to make a nuclear reactor in his shed. Using consumer materials, he made a raduim-based neutron gun, purified thorium and pitchblende and began churning out uranium-233. Eventually the radioactivity began to spread and he got caught by the cops. His experiment is now in a nuclear waste disposal site in the desert.
