12-Year-Old Astrophysics Prodigy

So essentially this is a smaller article to highlight the possible future of astrophysics. Kid sounds pretty smart to me, I'd like to see what all of you think.

This kids abilities are truly remarkable but it is important to consider the vast amount of advancements we have made in astrophysics since Einstein's time (a significant amount of which can be accounted for Einstein himself). Astrophysics has made great strides over the past few decades and the availability of information in the field is also far greater than that of Einstein's time. So when making a comparison it is important to factor in the discrepancy in information that was available to Einstein and the information that is available now.
