Richard Feynmann

The incomparable Richard Feynmann is a legend in physics, and deservedly so. In addition to his numerous contributions to theoretical physics he had a gift for explaining complex topics in simple terms. He was never much in the public eye until the Challenger tragedy when in an otherwise boring hearing he revealed, in the simplest possible way, the vulnerability of the booster O-rings to low temperature.

So here is a link to seven of his brilliant lectures. Southern Man doesn't expect any of his readers to listen to them, but he wants to, when he has time, and this is his way of both bookmarking the lectures and reminding all three of his readers that giants once walked among us. Let us always remember them.
