The twelve-year-old boy who made aerospace history has now opened up about his plans for the future...

Caleb Anderson became the youngest student to land a place at the prestigious Georgia Institute of Technology.

Quite the achievement for a pre-teen, isn't it?

Now, as you may have guessed...

Caleb isn't your average twelve-year-old.

The youngster, who comes from Marietta, Georgia, has always been gifted.

For instance - Caleb began mimicking his mother's speech when he was just 4 weeks old, by the age of 2 he could read the Constitution and, even more remarkably so, by the age of 3, he gained acceptance to the MENSA High IQ Society.

And, if all of that wasn't impressive enough...

In addition to his native language of English, Caleb is fluent in Spanish, French, and Mandarin.

The gifted boy advanced through school at a much quicker pace than most other children...

And had completed high school by the age of eleven.

However, the other kids weren't too kind to Caleb about his success.

"The kids there, they kind of looked down on me, they treated me like I was an anomaly," Caleb told CBS This Morning.

But he has remained incredibly humble about his gift.

He insisted, "I'm not really smart, I just grasp information quickly."

His latest achievement, however, is something that should certainly be bragged about.

Because, as stated earlier...

Caleb has become the youngest student to ever land a place on the aerospace engineering course at the Georgia Institute of Technology.

Obviously, this is a huge achievement.

And Caleb has given some insight into how he started his journey and his hopes for the future in a recent interview...

He explained why he decided to skip high school...

"My parents started an elementary school for gifted kids and it was amazing, but it shut down so I had to transfer to another school. I felt like I wasn't really being challenged and the other kids would look down on me, which is what prompted me to skip high school and go to college."

"I took the tests to enter Chattahoochee Technical College here in Georgia when I was 10. I aced the tests, which was nice."

"College was a step up and it's starting to challenge me and I love that. At school, I was always different, but at college, the kids are really mature and know better, and they don't just see me like a super smart kid, they look at me as a little brother. I really appreciate that. I'm constantly learning things and the time goes really fast. Currently, I'm studying macroeconomics, humanities, calculus one, and U.S. history."

"History and science have always been my two favorite subjects."

"There's so much about the past that people don't know about, and science is about our natural world and how everything works. I think it's pretty interesting to learn about how I live and how people who were alive before me have lived."

"I can take college classes and they count as both high school and college classes. So, by next year I will have finished the final semester of my sophomore year of college and I'll simultaneously have graduated high school."

"I'll be able to attend another college to study aerospace engineering and I'll only have two years left of my bachelor's degree, which will be cool. "Georgia Institute of Technology is one of the best schools for aerospace engineering in the U.S. I'm so lucky to have such an amazing school so close to home. I've applied to study aerospace engineering there, and hopefully, they let me in. They are always in the top three for any aerospace engineering program. I'll probably know for sure by early December, but I know they have said I'm a great candidate."

It looks like Caleb has his whole life planned out...

"Hopefully, I will graduate with a bachelor's degree in aerospace engineering at 14, and then I need to get my pilot's license, which I'll have to wait until I'm 17 to do. So after my bachelor's degree, I want to do my master's at Georgia Tech and then do an internship with Elon Musk. I'd like to get my Ph.D. at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and then go on to work at NASA or SpaceX."

Understandably, his parents are overwhelmingly proud of their son.

His mom, Claire, has a master's degree herself, while his dad, Kobi, works as an IT manager.

But the couple has both stressed their desires to teach Caleb important lessons outside of the classroom...

Or outside of the aerospace engineering lab, that is. Claire explained: "We had to learn there are other things that we can teach him about compassion, kindness, and looking for the good in others."

She continued:

"We want to make sure that when he is an adult, he’ll make a great husband, a great father, a great friend."

Congratulations, Caleb!
