Retired hobbyist builds nuclear reactor in Wimbledon

The Daily Mail reports that a retired Wimbledon technician is endeavouring to create the world's first amateur nuclear reactor, in the home he shares with his 96 year old mother. This is an extension of his earlier career carrying out nuclear fusion experiments at Aldermaston in the 60s - only now he does not have military-grade suppliers, but is using parts mostly sourced from the local Maplin's.

'I've only managed to get two watts out of it so far,' he says. 'But if I increase the power, I should be able to start a nuclear fusion reaction. Of course, I wouldn't want to do a really big experiment here - it's not an ideal place. And it could be dangerous.'
