Most young teens are fascinated with pop music or sports, but Taylor Wilson (pictured) was obsessed with nuclear physics, collecting radioactive materials and building a fusion reactor. Imagine being the parents of this extraordinary and gifted boy! What is the best strategy for raising and educating a gifted child like Taylor? Tonight on Inquiry we talk with writer and editor TOM CLYNES about his wonderful new biography of Taylor: THE BOY WHO PLAYED WITH FUSION: EXTREME SCIENCE, EXTREME PARENTING AND HOW TO MAKE A SUN.
