In 1964, Richard Feynman gave a series of seven, hour-long lectures at Cornell University that have gone down in history as a wonderfully accessible introduction to physics. Now, you can read them online for free.
The lectures of Nobel Prize winning physicist Richard Feynman were legendary. Footage of these lectures does exist, but they are most famously preserved in The Feynman Lectures. The three-volume set may be the most popular collection of physics books ever written, and now you can access it online, in its entirety, for…
If you have a love of science, particularly physics, you owe it to yourself to hunt down a book or a lecture by Richard Feynman. A brilliant theoretical physicist whose career included work on the original atomic bomb, Feynman eschewed the nerdy scientist stereotype, and nowhere is that more apparent than his…
Following a Freedom of Information request, the FBI has just released its records on Richard Feynman.
