American theoretical physicist Richard Feynman (1918-1988) changed our world forever with his groundbreaking discoveries involving subatomic particles, quantum electrodynamics, quantum computing, his introduction of nanotechnology, and so much more. He was the recipient of the Albert Einstein Award in 1954, the National Medal of Science in 1979, and in 1965 he won the Nobel Prize in Physics. With such a vast understanding of how our Universe functions at both the hyper-micro and hyper-macro scale, Feynman’s thoughts on the nature of beauty carry such enormous weight it’s an absolute treasure to listen to him speak in the beautifully edited video above courtesy of Reid Gower’s The Feynman Series on YouTube. The full narration can be found at BBC’s The Pleasure Of Finding Things Out. (via Kottke)
