Richard Feynman (1918-1988)

Richard Feynman is a physicist who won the Nobel Prize,  worked on the Manhattan Project, he played a key role in explaining the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster, and he is known for the “Feynman diagrams” that symbolize particle collisions. He gave famous introductory lectures on physics, which is now available online. The online edition features all the lectures on matter, electromagnetism, and quantum mechanics. It’s not easy to understand, but as Feynman himself once said, “Hell, if I could explain it to the average person, it wouldn’t have been worth the Nobel Prize.

In 1959, he gave a lecture that predicted the coming nano-technological revolution, “There is plenty of room at the bottom.”
