Just when you think the world cannot get any crazier, a student has just made a nuclear fusion reactor and put it on sale online.
If you have a few thousand dollars lying around with no use for them, you can actually buy this nuclear fusion reactor. Or you can spend the money on something you actually need.
The person behind this odd offer is Samuel Lee, a former student at Marlborough Boys College in New Zealand. He does not only sell his homemade fusion reactor but also offers 20 grams of deuterium oxide for anyone who is willing to buy it.
On the listing, Lee went into details of what the buyer can get as well as an assurance that his reactor is safe. He said that a qualified electrical engineer was the one doing all the electrical work and also warned users not to leave the transformer at max for longer than 20 minutes.
The odd product can be found on TradeMe, New Zealand’s largest online platform for trading. The nuclear fusion reactor has attracted lots of attention, naturally as it is arguably the first of its kind to be on sale there, but no bids have been made.
Lee did share a little bit about this project of his. According to the listing, the reactor was made in 2018 in his garage in Blenheim, a town in South Islands, New Zealand.
According to him, when the user adds the second isotope of hydrogen to the void, a nuclear reaction will happen.
Lee also shared that his decision to sell his creation is to afford his university tuition fees.
The boy hopes to get $4,000 (Rs. 2,85,114) for the nuclear fusion reactor with a reserve price of $3,000 (Rs. 2,13,835). Too bad for him, no one has shown real interest. Maybe people do not have the need for it, or they are just afraid of getting into trouble with the law.
