Nuclear Weapon Detector 1 of 11

Taylor Wilson started working on a home nuclear detection device when he was only 11. With a grant from the Department of Homeland Security and the support of his parents, Taylor became the youngest person (16 years old) to ever create Nuclear Fusion, and he is only the 31st person to ever do so privately outside of the government and nuclear industry. He crafted a drive-through sensor with the ability to reliably detect nuclear weapons and explosive materials.

On "Taylor's Nuke Site," he says, "With the reactor I have the capability to make stable elements radioactive, and I conduct research in the fields of basic fusion science, homeland security, and nuclear medicine."
