Swedish Man Caught Trying To Split Atoms In His HomeSwedish Man Caught Trying To Split Atoms In His Home, A Swedish man, who was arrested after trying to split atoms in the kitchen, said Wednesday that only does it as a hobby.

Richard Handl told The Associated Press that he had the radio radioactive elements americium and uranium in his apartment in southern Sweden, when the police came and arrested him on charges of unauthorized possession of nuclear materials.

The Handl, 31-year-old said he had tried for months to create a nuclear reactor in the country and maintains a blog about their experiences, describing how he created a small crisis on your stove.

Only later realized that there can be legal and a question is sent to the Swedish Radiation Authority, which responded by sending the police.

“I’ve always been interested in physics and chemistry,” Handl said, adding that only wanted to “see if we could split the atoms in their home.”

The police raid took place in late July, but police have refused comment. If convicted, could face fines or up to two years Handl in prison.

Despite saying that police have not detected dangerous levels of radiation in his apartment, which now recognizes that the project was not a good idea?

“From now on, I will just theory,” he said.
