Richard Feynman

Barbara J. Feldman

Although American physicist Richard Feynman won the Nobel prize in 1965, it was his books of anecdotes (“ Surely You’re Joking, Mr. Feynman!” and “What Do You Care What Other People Think?“) and his appointment to the presidential Challenger disaster investigation commission in 1986, that raised him to icon status. Feynman was an independent thinker, extremely intolerant of stupidity. Learn why Feynman fans are so devoted at today’s website picks.
