Super Humans - Tanishq Mathew Abraham
Tanishq Mathew Abraham (born 2003) is an American child prodigy with Indian ancestry. He joined the on-campus college Astronomy class at the age of 7 years, when he became the top student among his college classmates and received an A grade for the course. Before he graduated from high school at the age of 10 years, Tanishq earned A grades in 3 college astronomy courses. Eight year old Tanishq became the founding vice-president of the astronomy club at his college. He served 2 years as the VP of Physics & Astronomy club being actively involved in research projects, college talks and club leadership. His passion for astronomy led him to work on on-line astronomy projects, write astronomy articles that were published on NASA website and attend astronomy & NASA talks & conferences where he met and discussed with astronomers, astrophysicists,astronauts and Noble Prize winners. At the age of 8 years, he co-discovered supernovae, an exoplanet candidate and a solar storm watch using NASA data and an on-line line citizen science program . By the age of 9 years, he became the youngest to attend and speak at a NASA conference for which he received Special Mention Award for his poster presentation and rapid talk. His tweet last summer was fun and maybe will be also true, he want to be medic, researcher and president of United States. I would vote for him.
