He bought the radioactive material on ebay.

A Swedish man, arrested after experimenting with radioactive material in his wearedodgy, has said he was trying to find out if it was possible to split the atom at home.

Of course you can split a few atoms at home, any natural radioactive material is continualy splitting atoms.
But doing it so as to produce useful power, no way.

Sounds kind of cool and if I knew more about the topic, I might try an attempt but the US government probably wouldn't like me doing this...facsinating nonetheless!
an impressive thing to attempt. Dont think my wearedodgy would be the first place i think of putting highly radioactive materials...
