Swede arrested was trying to split an Atom at home

A Swede named Richard Handl was arrested for trying to split a atom in his home.
He was charged with being in authorized possession of uranium and americium. His intent was to create a nuclear reactor for his home and had experimented for months and kept a blog in which he told his experiences about creating a thermonuclear fusion in his oven

He came to wonder if what he was doing was
unlawful so he sent a letter to the department that handles these situations in Sweden which is how the police found him.

Handl says he has always been interested in physics and chemistry.

"I just wanted to see if it was possible to split an atom at home, but from now on, I'll just stick to the practical part"

Despite not having found alarming levels of radiation in the apartment, Handl will no longer be able to continue with his experi
ments and, moreover, will be judged for what he had done already. The penalty for possession of radioactive material is fine or up to two years in prison.
