Weekend read: The boy who played with fusion

This is a great feature from Popular Science magazine about Taylor Wilson, a young lad with an amazingly enquiring scientific mind. He set up a nuclear lab in his family’s garage before he even reached his teens, and achieved nuclear fusion at the age of fourteen. It’s an extraordinary story by Tom Clynes.
