    Heres a new website dedicated to the hero of all physics geeks: Richard P. Feynman.The site features many Feynman articles like his lectures, anecdotes, jokes, stories etc.. other resources like jokes and daily news feed and others make it a good site to kill time or learn some random stuff.
    Give it a visit!

    I thought Einstein was our major hero.

    I dunno, Feynman was pretty awesome. As well as being charismatic and equipped with many interesting skills, he is known as one of the greatest teachers of physics ever.

    Galileo has to rank near the top being one of (if not) the first to systematically use mathematics to model the physical world.

    kudos to feynman. He's my favourite physicists of all times !! Read his book : surely you must be joking, mr feynman if you haven already.

    Favourite engineer : Nicola Tesla

    Feynman's other book, What Do You Care What Other People Think is also a great read. He was a true original. :cool:

    I have just finished (as of about an hour and a half ago) "Surely You're Joking Mr. Feynmann". It's a great read. Has anyone read his anthology of speeches, "The Pleasure of Finding Things Out"? That's also very interesting.

    What Do You Care What Other People Think was good, but kind of depressing, don't you think?

    I also liked his 6 lectures "The nature of physical laws".
