Jamie Edwards, a 13-year-old schoolboy has become the youngest person in the world to successfully carry out atomic fusion. He was able to collide two hydrogen atoms together into a helium atom in his science laboratory at Penwortham Priory Academy, Preston, Lancashire, UK.
The British boy Jamie was inspired by the 14-year-old American nuclear scientist Taylor Wilson, who produced nuclear fusion using a fusor in Nevada in the year 2008. His head teacher Jim Hourigan and friend George Barker also helped Jamie to build this nuclear fusion reactor.
