[quote]The true story of American teenager David Hahn, who set about building a nuclear reactor in his garden shed. But it all started to go wrong when he found that the shed was emitting very high levels of radiation. Was his homemade reactor producing plutonium?[/quote]
David Hahn in the mid-nineties was a teenage boy scout working towards his merit badges. One badge in particular, the Atomic Energy Merit Badge, caught his imagination when it required him to make a model of a nuclear reactor out of cotton buds etc. David went further and sought out household sources of the materials he would need to make his reactor. Here he talks us through what he did and the surprising results he got.
I was not the original Capper for this video and the quality is unchanged from when i got the video. Since resolution is low, the video is slightly blocky when viewing full screen. However, it's a fascinating story, made more incredible due to the fact that it's all true.
