According to an International Business News broadcast, a Swedish man was arrested for attempting to build a nuclear reactor in his kitchen. The man who has been identified as 31 year-old, Richard Handl of Angelholm, in southern Sweden, purportedly alerted officials to his intentions after he contacted the Swedish Radiation Safety Authority in July to ask if he was allowed to build it.
Watch the video on the story, it's seems interesting to me that the guy was able to rig some of his gear up by recycling materials, for example material scraped from illuminated clock hands. Also, whats up with some American company selling the guy spent uranium materials, seems it was sample sold together with a Geiger counter.
To give this guy a little bit of credit, he was not trying to build a bomb. He was building his own power supply, and with the cost of electricity today, I can almost not blame him. Still radioactivity is no joke and nothing to mess around with. The guy was building a nuclear fusion reactor. I should introduce him to inventor, Rusi Taleyarkhan who has been leading the research team at the Oak Ridge National Laboratory in Tennessee that been working on a small table-top sized nuclear fusion invention - a bubble fusion reactor.

Hiroshima Marks Anniversary

The world's first atomic bomb was dropped on Hiroshima on August 6, 1945 by the United States during World War II, killing an estimated 70,000 people instantly with many thousands more dying over the following years from the effects of radiation. Three days later another atomic bomb was dropped on Nagasaki. Photo Credit: Kiyoshi Ota/Getty Images
