Autistic Kid Develops Own Theory of Relativity
Apparently, Autism is something most parents don't want. However, I'm pretty sure the parents of 12 year old Jacob Barnett are pretty damn proud of their son at the moment. Jacob, diagnosed with Aspergers syndrome (a mild form of autism) at an early age, Jacob now studies at Indiana University-Purdue University Indianapolis in the advanced astrophysics classes. Actually, he's being doing that since age eight. He has a 170 IQ (higher than Einstein) and his mother sent the below video to the renowned Institute for Advanced Study near Princeton University. Like me, his mother has no idea if Jacob's advanced theory of relativity is true or not - but thanks to the age of the internet, there is no way in hell Jacob won't get credit for it if it is.
