    Man arrested for building nuclear reactor in his kitchen


    By Mike Wehner, Tecca | Today in Tech

    Ängelholm, a small town along the coast of Sweden, isn't the first place you'd think to look in the search for a nuclear reactor. But that's just what police in the seaside city were tasked with hunting down when one of its citizens took it upon himself to construct his own radioactive power plant right in his own kitchen.

    The man, whose name has not been released, was reportedly very open about his fascination with nuclear power and with his plans to attempt the dangerous project at home, though it appears nobody took him seriously. After spending $1,000 on supplies shipped from unspecified foreign countries, the amateur reactor builder set to work, monitoring the radiation levels in his home with a Geiger counter.

    At some point, it must have occurred to the man that what he was building might not have been entirely legal, because he placed a friendly call to the Swedish Radiation Authority to see if there were any lawson the books regarding homemade nuclear reactors. Local police arrived shortly thereafter and confiscated the man's materials before placing him under arrest. He was released a short while later after questioning and has reportedly vowed to refrain from any further experimentation.

            It's truly amazing how socialist countries stifle innovation by the general public. How do they think they are going to get people to become energy independent, away from the ravages of evil corporations. :doh! 1:

              You are going to have to do more research before you post :): they have a plan.

              Sweden plans to be world's first oil-free economy
              · 15-year limit set for switch to renewable energy
              · Biofuels favoured over further nuclear power.
