On this day, a century ago, a brilliant spirit was born. Richard Feynman, together with Albert Einstein and the late Stephen Hawking, is considered one of the most accomplished theoretical physicists of the 20th century.
Feynman's most famous work is his contribution to quantum theory ̵
"I have won the prize for bringing Dr. big problem under the carpet, "Feynman said contemptuously," but in this case there was a moment when I knew how nature worked – it had elegance and beauty, "in terms of his later work.
He was also one of the members of the top-secret team of scientists in Los Alamos who would later invent the atomic bomb. During this time, Feynman often had nothing good to do. He spent his time cracking safes with secret papers and leaving mocking notes demanding a dollar for the return of patents.
In this archive footage from BBC TV, acclaimed physicist Richard Feynman explains what fires, magnets, rubber bands (and more) are of the order of the wobbly atoms that make them up , This accessible, enchanting conversation in physics reveals a teeming nano world that's just fun.
Like Hawking, Feynman is one of the few scientists who has come to the public's attention thanks to his sinister personality and charisma. His groundbreaking Caltech lectures and two autobiographical books brought him fame, earning him the reputation of a quirky physicist whose humor and stage personality rivaled those of television personalities.
