Scientists and governments have been trying for decades and at great expense to create a clean and renewable energy through nuclear fusion (google 'National Ignition Facility' for example).

However, it now seems a teenage boy from Penwortham Primary School has achieved the impossible. However, Jamie Edwards has created a FUSOR reactor which although producing fast neutrons (which can be used to heat water and turn turbines for electricity) that machines actually uses far more energy than it could every produce.

I suppose the scientists will have to keep trying!
