Backyard nuclear device for sale

From Afternoons with Jesse Mulligan, 1:37 pm on 10 February 2020

There's an unusual offering on Trademe today for an adventurous buyer. Advertised as a home made working nuclear reactor "forged from the depths of physics", the listing is for a science fair project that has boundless potential for the right experimenter. 

The device was built last year by then Marlborough Boys College student Samuel Lee.
