8-Year-Old Genius Explains The Total Solar Eclipse And Why It’s Such A Big Deal
The total solar eclipse is just three sleeps away. It will travel across America on Monday, scaring the piss out of wild animals when total darkness happens in the middle of the day. People will experience partial blindness, this is a guarantee. No matter how many times scientists tell people to wear protective glasses to watch the solar eclipse some people will still say ‘fuck it’ and just stare at it, this is an absolute certainty.
To get ready for the solar eclipse, Jimmy Kimmel invited 8-year-old Romanieo Golphin, Jr onto Jimmy Kimmel Live last night and had the science expert dumb down the significance of this eclipse in a way we can all understand. I’m not sure how I feel about having science dumbed down for me by an 8-year-old, but I’m pretty stoked to see that this tiny genius is out there in the world and well on his way to becoming part of the next great generation of scientists.
