Richard Feynman's lost lecture

Post  pinhedz on Mon May 30, 2011 7:58 am

You might as well order this now--The Motion of Planets Around the Sun: a mathematically rigorous derivation of the laws governing the motion of planets in elliptical orbits--but without higher math. Newton did it without higher math, so Feyman determined that he could explain it that way, too, for freshmen.

You get the audio of the lecture and a book containing the full text of the lecture transcribed from the audio, plus an expanded version of the lecture with fuller explanations provided by a former student of his.

I know you want it ... gotta have it ...





In addition to physics, Feynman was also very adept at both art and Tuvan throat singing. He wanted to participate in the throat singing competition in the Soviet Union, which was a difficult thing to do during the Soviet era, and in the end he didn't live long enough to make that dream come true.

If you haven't seen Feynman's art works yet, there's a bunch of them here:

Feynman is now a comic book. Rue will be outraged I'm sure, because he is not drawn handsome enough. bounce

Feynman's interests were eclectic, if his notebooks are any indication:
