Taylor Wilson, a rising star in the world of science, was honored at the Intel International Science Fair for his amazing invention that detects weapons on shipping containers. At the age of just 14, Taylor Wilson developed a nuclear fusion reactor! Taylor had spoken at the Fair about the possibility of using his invented device to scan and detect weapons in the cargo containers. The device can also be used as an X-ray device which can scan the containers for fingerprints or radioactive traces without opening them. As the number of cargo containers going in and out of the U.S Customs and Clearance every year is increasing, this device will definitely ease the burden of checking process as well as offer extra security of the imported goods from the overseas countries. His name has been included in the Guinness Book of Records as the youngest nuclear scientist.
When Taylor Wilson was 7 years old, he memorized all the rockets which were made by the U.S. and Soviet governments.Born in 1994, Taylor was mining for uranium in New Mexico at the age of 11 with his father. Taylor has the capability to make stable radioactive elements with the reactor and he conducts research in the fields of homeland security, basic fusion science, and nuclear medicine. He is currently attending both, the Davidson Academy of Nevada, and the University of Nevada, Reno.
Taylor has a lab at his house which houses his collection and where he conducts most of the Nuclear Chemistry work, detector development, and chemistry on the Actinides. Also, he has a lab at the University of Nevada, Reno, which is given to him by Dr. Ron Phaneuf. In this lab, Taylor’s reactor resides and his neutron source development research with many experiments is conducted. Although Taylor likes applied nuclear science, he also enjoys researching Nuclear History. Currently, Taylor is popular in USA, but because of his amazing inventions, he will quickly become the most well-known person of the world.
