I am Jamie Edwards, a 15 year old amateur nuclear scientist. Recently I built a nuclear fusion reactor and attempted to become the youngest "fusioneer". I wouldn't be doing this without the financial support from my school, Penwortham Priory Academy.

After many hours finding leaks in my chamber I have finally achieved a vacuum of 0.1*10^-5 torr. This a very good pressure for the vacuum chamber to reach and is almost perfect for doing fusion. I would like to thank R&B Switchgear for supplying a three phase inverter for the mechanical pump.
The above picture shows the guage right at the bottom of its scale showing the chamber is in vacuum.
