A 12-year-old boy is set to get an aerospace engineering degree in two years and hopes Elon Musk will make him an astronaut.

Brainy Caleb Anderson is starting his second year at Chattahoochee Technical College in the US.

The youngster, of Marietta, Georgia, told CBC News: “I’m not really smart.

“I just grasp information quickly. So, if I learn quicker, then I get ahead faster.”

Caleb learned sign language at nine months and started reading a few months later.

He was able to solve maths problems by his second birthday and joined MENSA – a club for people whose IQ scores are in the top 2% – aged three.

Now he hopes to join the Georgia Institute of Technology or the Massachusetts Institute for Technology to get an internship with Tesla and SpaceX founder Elon Musk.

He has told USA Today: “When I was like 1, I always wanted to go to space.

“I figured that aerospace engineering would be the best path.”

He added: “I have this distinct memory of going to a first-grade class and learning there, and everyone was way taller than me, because, you know, I was two.

“I could barely walk!”

Caleb’s mother, Claire, hopes her son’s example can show other African-American parents that their child can be just as special.

She said: “I think people have a negative perspective when it comes to African-American boys.

“There are many other Calebs out there.

“African-American boys like him.

“From being a teacher — I really believe that. But they don’t have the opportunity or the resources.”
