Genius at work, debating the Big Bang Theory and has his own Quantum Theory.



Jacob Barnett?

Who's he?


Jake taught himself algebra, geometry, trigonometry and calculus in 2 weeks.
He's studying physics at IUPUI.

He's 12.

He can solve pi to 200 digits.

I highly suggest you read the entirety of this article:

Semi-related stuff:
In perspective, what have I been doing these past few years? I have to admit, I think of myself as an intelligent individual with slightly above-average IQ.

I'm still struggling with calculus and trigonometry.

Jacob ate it all up in two weeks.

Semi-related stuff Part II:
In all honesty, I'm a little bit jealous >.>
 I am also amazed at Jacob's incredible achievements, and am definitely looking forward to his future scientific contributions.


  1. I like the show big bang theory :D and i also fed your fish :P

  2. I biggest concern is over this dark matter and dark energy stuff... I feel like physists are just making it up like they did when they talked about the physical ether outside the earth.

  4. Genius kids.. I wonder if they make it past 30.

  5. schrödinger the crazy austrian

  6. show of an intelligent individual when you acknowledge someone's great feats, even a 12 year old maths and sciences prodigy, and state that you hope to see some great contributions.
    I feel the same way, but god damn that is incredible haha

  7. I was having a discussing with an old coworker about this kid and I couldn't help but pick at some of the more obvious flaws in this kid's theories, but he indeed is incredibly intelligent.


Yes, Cerebrate?
