Submission + - Swede arrested for building nuclear reactor (

An anonymous reader writes: A 31 year old Swedish male was arrested for trying to build a nuclear reactor in his apartment.

He got hold of radioactive material thru mail-order purchases and from smoke detectors.

Police raided his apartment after he had contacted the Swedish Radiation Authority (Strålsäkerhetsmyndigheten) to inquire if it was legal to construct a nuclear reactor at home.
