12 Yr Old Math Genius
Kid is a math genius. How did it happen? "He began solving 5,000-piece jigsaw puzzles at the age of 3, not long after he'd been diagnosed with Asperger's syndrome, a mild form of autism. A few years later, he taught himself calculus, algebra, and geometry in two weeks. By 8, he had left high school, and is currently taking college-level advanced astrophysics classes—while tutoring his older classmates. And he's being recruited for a paid researcher job by Indiana University.
Now, he's at work on a theory that challenges the Big Bang—the prevailing explanation among scientists for how the universe came about. It's not clear how developed it is, but experts say he's asking the right questions." http://news.yahoo.com/s/yblog_theloo...skys-the-limit

Just as a heads up, you can post this off topic stuff in the orange main central discussion area during the offseason. Not many will discuss it here.
I hope the kid can figure some of this out. It would be nice to see science advance to the point of knowing where everything came from before I die. We will need some Einstein type minds to push these fields for there to be any hope of that happening.
