Where could I get a Beginners Guide to Fission and Fussion?

Most likely nowhere.

However, I have to do an assignment on Fission and Fussion and .. their goodness, or something along those lines, and I really need someone to dumb down the whole concept for me. I'm completely hopeless. Would it be wrong to ask if there's anyone out there who could help?
Jesus, lol.

Are you looking to start up a reactor or pass a test?

Has any one else heard the story about some boy scout or something starting up a breeder reactor in his backyard? One of my profs swears its true, but I am not really buying it. If nothing else, who the hell would be dumb enough to do that?

Interesting.

I fear the level of detail they go into in that.

Yes, actually. The Nuclear Energy badge. Boy Scouts really IS beneficial for people. It will teach just about ANYTHING they want to know, and do it well.

It's a story about an 18 year old who built a fusion reactor in is basement. It fusion but very little, just enough to produces neutron radiation.

It's not really a fusion reactor. It's the base component of a fusion reactor. But some scientists still don't trust it.
