First teenager: "So, what did you do today?"

Second teenager: "Nothin'. Hung out at the mall. What did you do today?"

First teenager: "Oh, I achieved fusion in my garage."



Pointing to the steel chamber where all the magic happens, Thiago said on Friday that this piece of the puzzle serves as a vacuum. The air is sucked out and into a filter.

Then, deuterium gas -- a form of hydrogen -- is injected into the vacuum. About 40,000 volts of electricity are charged into the chamber from a piece of equipment taken from an old mammogram machine. As the machine runs, the atoms in the chamber are attracted to the center and soon -- ta da -- nuclear fusion.

Thiago said when that happens, a small intense ball of energy forms.

He first achieved fusion in September and has been perfecting the machine he built in his parents' garage ever since.


Eeeeyeah, well I counted all my popsicle sticks today. I have 438. What's on TV?
