So 12-year old Jackson oswalt is the name of the genius who did something most scientists have been longing to achieve.
The “little physicist” as i like to call him, carried out a nuclear fusion in his parent’s garage.
In a forum for kids, called Fusor, the kid wrote “One day I had a sudden epiphany, I realized that I could be the absolute best at whatever video game, but in the end it still wouldn’t mean much. I realized that, in the grand scheme of things, video games had no role to play.” And that was when he discovered science was where he belonged.
Oswalt isn’t like your average 12-year old, while the normal 12-year old would want toys, and bikes for Christmas,🏄⚽ oswalt requested the parts he needed from ebay to build his nuclear reactor.🔧💈🔩
On a normal day you would expect a 12-year old to be watching some cartoons and stuff, but not with oswalt. He would put on the science channel and watch physics videos.
His parent on the other hand supported him in every way they could. They spent between $8,000 to $10,000 paying for the parts he needed for the experiment. It was reported that they even paid for a 50,000 volts radioactive radiation.😰
According to reports, oswalt went through a lot of trial and errors, (but that what makes science fun) but never gave up until he achieved his glory.xp🎉📐🎂
I an interview with his father, Chris oswalt, he said “Being a parent of someone that was as driven as he was for 12 months was really impressive to see. I mean it was everyday grinding; every day learning something different; every day failing and watching him work through all those things.”oswalt went on to break the record ad the youngest scientist ever to do such.
He said he is looking forward doing more of such, plus he also got a letter of recommendation from his school for a scholarship. (Awww)🏆🏁
