Mr Carson Huey-You is a 11 years old boy who plays the piano and speaks Mandarin fluently. On 9/11/2001, the 75-pound, 4-foot-7 boy who finds calculus relaxing (basketball is OK, too) wasn't born yet but he wants to become a quantum physicist.
And as Fox News, TCU 360, Statesman, and others reveal, he just made a non-trivial step in order to become a quantum physicist.
He was just accepted to the Texas Christian University as a freshman physics major.
This surely sounds like a part of the CV of his fellow Texan Dr Sheldon Cooper, it's cool, so congratulations! ;-) My understanding is that his mother is black while his father is Chinese.
Of course, I don't know how hard the process of admission was and whether this story is more than just a media stunt by the university. But it surely does sound neat and convincing, especially because we're told that he got 1770 on his SAT which isn't bad. He's been reading approximately since his 2nd birthday. He knew the five basic mathematical operations – addition, subtraction, multiplication, division, and the Feynman path integral – a year later.
When I was 11, I was just barely starting to understand special relativity, having had almost no exposure to quantum physics or even the term "quantum physics".
At any rate, 11 years is a wonderful age to start with quantum physics. I would guess that it's low enough age so that if you start to learn related physics insights at this age, you are more likely to avoid Bohmian, Everettian, GRWian, material collapsian, and other delusions denying some fundamental and universal postulates of quantum mechanics.
At the age of 15-16, he wants to get a PhD and become a visiting professor. Because of this comment, I must remind the U.S. readers that the 7th season of The Big Bang Theory will begin next month, on 9/26.
