One of the world's youngest nuclear scientists says the field has unlimited possibilities to improve people's everyday lives.

Taylor Wilson, a 21 year old American nuclear physicist, was the keynote speaker at the International Atomic Energy Agency's (IAEA's) Scientific Forum this week in Vienna.

Mr Wilson became interested in science from the age of 10, and by 14, he became the youngest scientist to work with nuclear fusion.

He spoke to Steve Thachet, who began by asking about the various applications of nuclear technology.
