Man Arrested for Having Mini Nuclear Reactor in Kitchen

  • Print

For most people, a hobby is building model ships or collecting stamps.  For one man in Sweden, it's splitting atoms in his kitchen. Orange.co.uk reports that 31-year-old Richard Handl enjoyed making mini nuclear reactors at his home and frequently blogged about his experiments. However all went sour for Handl after he started thinking that his nuclear lab might not exactly be legal and contacted Sweden’s Radiation Authority to check, which in turn tipped off police. The 31-year-old was arrested and could spend up to two years in prison if convicted.
