http://news.discovery.com/human/teen...em-120528.htmlA boy math whiz has shocked the world by solving a 350-year-old problem once posed by the great mathematician, Sir Isaac Newton.
Sixteen-year-old Shouryya Ray, a boy of Indian origin attending school in Germany, cracked two particle dynamics theories. Ray's novel solutions can now help scientists calculate the flight path of a thrown ball and predict how it will strike and bounce off a wall, according to the International Business Times.
Ray was told by professors during a school field trip to Dresden University that the problem could not be solved. That notion didn't sit right with the Calcutta-born student.
According to Welt Online, Ray has been captivated by math since a very early age and was inspired by his father, Subhashis Ray, who works as a research assistant at the Technical University of Freiburg. His father began teaching Ray calculus at the tender age of six.
most impressive Kudos to him for not taking no as an answer.
