For two years, a 12-year-old boy had been working on an unusual project and entered the Guinness Book of Records.
An American teenager aged 12 assembled an operating nuclear reactor at home. This is reported on the official website of Guinness World Records.
A resident of the American city of Memphis, Jackson Oswalt was inspired by the record holder Taylor Wilson, who at the age of 14 made the reactor himself and became a world record holder.
For two years, Oswalt had been building a nuclear reactor at his home. The boy claims that he did all the work himself. According to the teenager, he faced various problems during the creation of the project.
Oswalt called the production of airtight insulation the most difficult part of the work. The boy spent about six months to complete this stage correctly.
The boy's mother supported him in his unusual endeavor. The woman noted that she studied each stage of her son's work on the Internet before he went to different stages.
Now Oswalt is in the Guinness Book of Records as the youngest man to repeat a nuclear reactor at home.
