Solutions from a Teen who Built a Nuclear Fusion Reactor

Taylor Wilson believes that kids can change the world and that he has some great solutions. This inspiring 17-year-old is someone we definitely need to listen to…He built a working fusion reactor in his parents’ garage when he was just 14 and he believes nuclear fusion could help the energy crisis on earth. Taylor is the youngest person ever to produce nuclear fusion, which is a nuclear reaction where atomic nuclei fuse to form a heavier nucleus and release a lot of energy.

The American nuclear physicist was initially interested in rocketry and space science, before entering the field of nuclear science at the tender age of 10. Here he takes the TED stage to tell us a little bit about his story.
