2 is the Crab Nebula, btw

Went uncracked. I think the question was a little bit too hard to realistically expect anyone to crack, so, the question is disqualified :)

I will post a make up question later and push it back in time. That way, all your runlenghts will not be hurt.

And I am not posting the answer because the funda is good and will re-frame a question some other day.

Guest question from p vs np. Thanks dude!

He ( the kid in the pic)  is claimed to be a prodigy, having a “brilliant and unique mind”. He supposedly built his first circuit board when he was four, which was when the photograph was probably taken with you-know-who. Identify this summa-cum-laude-from-MIT-when-17 genius who went on to head a multi-national arms manufacturing company.
