[ dad ] once she got more and more involved, i decided to build an observatory, where we could have all the equipment permanently mounted and start observing. so, i'm what they call a supernova hunter. i take pictures of the night sky and i scan them looking for noticeable changes. one night, i was looking at some images and i came across something that looked kind of interesting, so that's when i googled the galaxy to see what i could find. after searching for a while, i realized that i might have discovered my first supernova. so, i sent it into the international astronomical union. [ dad ] and it was late one evening and a friend of ours called up and said he needed to speak to caroline and then he broke the news to her that she had discovered and became the youngest person ever to discover a supernova. and i just started jumping up and down screaming and everything. it was great. i would just come into school and kids would just chant supernova, supernova.

big play on the last drive and proud of our guys.
>> michele: play action so productive. how were you able to be productive even though the run game in the second half wasn't moving? >> it's about a good fake and the line keeping their pads down and us trying to make a play. it's been a staple of our offense. probably the last nine or ten games and it's no surprise winning those games. >> michele: aaron, congratulations. >> thanks a lot. >> thanks, aaron, thanks, michele. packers 5-op. it only other unbeaten team is the lions 4-0 who play tomorrow night against the bears. tony dungy your reaction to tonight's game, coach? >> i thought it was a great job by the packers and cris and al talked about the defensive adjustments that they made, but i thought aaron rodgers was spectacular tonight. you heard him talk about staying patient when they got down and i thought he really did that. they had to kick field goals. jermichael finley dropped a potential touchdown pass. he didn't force things. he didn't take chances. he stayed within the offense and got them rolling in the second half. i thought he was tremendous. >> it's a pass happy league now.
