Richard Feynman born May 11, 1918 –
“One of the outstanding figures of twentieth-century theoretical physics.” Thus Roger Penrose on Richard Feynman. I think it’s hokum. Everyone knows that atoms don’t move, that the earth is as flat as a Frisbee, spaced isn’t curved, vectors don’t mean anything, maths is just a tautology, electron waves don’t do anything, and relatively speaking, relativity is meaningless. But Feynman was a great tutor for people far smarter than me, who did science well beyond high school.
