12-year-old Jacob Barnett has an IQ of 170 – higher than Albert Einstein – and is now so far advanced in his Indiana University studies that professors are lining him up for a PhD research role. The boy wonder taught himself calculus, algebra, geometry and trigonometry in a week.
Jake is now working on his own ‘expanded version of Einstein’s theory of relativity’.
His mother, not sure if her child was talking nonsense or genius, sent a video of his theory to the renowned Institute for Advanced Study near Princeton University.
According to the Indiana Star, astrophysics professor Scott Tremaine – himself a world renowned expert – confirmed the authenticity of the theory.
