MUST-SEE: Feynman – Fun to Imagine

Feynman was a genius. He was considered one of the most intelligent people alive in his time, and it’s hard to argue. He was also a very charismatic person and a great teacher, his lessons in fact are very famous worldwide and he’s also my favourite scientist of all time.

 

In case you don’t know him: he’s known for his work in the path integral formulation of quantum mechanics, the theory of quantum electrodynamics, and the physics of the superfluidity of supercooled liquid helium, as well as in particle physics for which he proposed the parton model. He also invented his own diagram known as the Feynman diagram, and participated in the Manhattan project, a project that involved people considered the biggest minds at the time.

I want to share with you some videos recorded by BBC, I can totally say that it’s a must-see for every science enthusiast. I’m quite sure you will love those videos. In “Fun to imagine” he explains some physics basic concepts in a very imaginative and extremely clear way. I hope you enjoy it!

PD: I linked the whole series, if you have little time the best ones are:
Feynman: F*****’ magnets, how do they work?
Feynman: Fire FUN TO IMAGINE 2
