    For a college bound student, he sure talks like a 9 year old. I didn't glean anything unusual from him at all.

      @Danica – This is what struck me as odd too. That for someone going to college see talked like a nine year old. It maybe just maturity. I'm not going to take anything away from him but It makes me wonder if he had "help". Best of luck to him.

      Have you ever met someone who is particularly smart, but lacks polished social skills? He is 9 years old, he is nervous on camera. You guys are unbelievable.

    Why was the first part of the video removed? Last night I had watched the boy's explanation of his learning and discoveries–about finding exoplanets etc?
