A Swedish man was arrested after he tried to build a nuclear reactor in his kitchen and documented his efforts on the Internet, authorities and the man said on Thursday.
Richard Handl, 31, from Angelholm in southern Sweden, gathered materials including smoke detectors, clock and watch hands and via purchases on the Internet.
"I was just curious to see if it was possible, it is just a hobby," said Handl, currently unemployed but previously a worker in a ventilation systems factory.
He documented his efforts on a blog and his Facebook page.
He got as far as mixing some ingredients on a cooker, americum, radium, beryllium and 96 per cent sulphuric acid.
"The boiling explosion was about 3 or 4 months ago and the police came two weeks ago," he said.
After the incident, which he tagged ‘The Meltdown’ on his blog, he said he "cleaned up the mess on the cooker and then I bought some more radium and continued the experiment."
Guys like him are a fatal threat to the whole neighbourhood and even the city in which he lives!
