Richard Feynman

RICHARD FEYNMAN

Richard Feynman originated the idea of quantum computing, nanotechnology, as in molecular machines, in the early 1950s. One of the greatest physicists, teachers and renaissance men of the twentieth century. He was broadly celebrated in the science world by the time his popular best selling books were published until he came into the public awareness during the Congressional hearings when he was televised demonstrating one of the problems with the Space Shuttle Challenger causing the disaster by showing the temperature variable with the material used in the O-rings.

RICHARD FEYNMAN:
Computers From The Inside Out
Historically celebrated as one of the most brilliant physicists, teachers, and original thinkers, Professor Feynman is the acknowledged inventor of quantum computing.  In the spirit of Feynman: find out what computers means, find out what heuristics means, find out what idiosyncratic thinking means, find out what the pleasure of finding things out means.  Richard Feynman joyfully shares the fun of understanding systems - he calls the workings of the machine we are discussing,  “The guts!”  A professorial/conspiratorial tone carries his entertaining introduction to his attentive non-technical audience,   "One of the miseries of life is that everybody names things a little bit wrong, and so it makes everything a little harder to understand in the world than it would be if it were named differently."   The program begins and  Richard Feynman is waiting for you on the playground of your mind.  You will be amazed at how smart you are after immersing yourself in Feynman's world.  These first 2 DVDs, Computers From The Inside Out and Tiny Machines are worth viewing many times, showing them to your family, friends, students and class.  TRT 1 hr. 17 mins.

RICHARD FEYNMAN:
Tiny Machines - The Feynman Lecture on Nanotechnology
Richard Feynman originated the idea of nanotechnology, or molecular machines, in the early 1960s. Here he explains the idea to a general audience, and illustrates it using slides and diagrams. The talk is amusing, entertaining, informative and a classic in the history of technology. One of the greatest physicists of the twentieth century, this man located the problem with the Space Shuttle Challenger during the hearings. On this tape he talks about the tiniest tools and the fascinating way they work. Tom Van Sant's eye art piece is discussed and pictured in the video. TRT 80 min.

RICHARD FEYNMAN:
Idiosyncratic Thinking Workshop

Two years of insight spoken during two five day workshops went into the making of the five-tape audio album. The video is an abbreviated highlights tape, stressing the visuals. Feynman fans are going to want both the audios and video of this series. Five 90 minute tapes.

RICHARD FEYNMAN:
Perfectly Reasonable Deviations From The Beaten Track:
The Letters Of Richard P. Feynman.

Michelle Feynman collects her famous father's letters to reveal a warm, honest man with high expectations for himself, his loved ones, and the human race. Long before Richard Feynman won the Nobel Prize, he was a smart, skinny graduate student at Princeton, writing letters to his mother and relating the mundane details of college life.

RICHARD FEYNMAN:
The Meaning of it All

In April 1963, Richard P. Feynman gave a series of remarkable lectures at the University of Washington in Seattle. These three consecutive talks were classic Feynman. Full of wit and wisdom but their subject matter was wholly unexpected: Feynman spoke not as a physicist but as a concerned fellow citizen, revealing his uncommon insights into the religious, political and social issues of the day.

Richard Feynman:
The Pleasure of Finding Things Out. The Best Short Works of Richard Feynman.

“This marvelous collection of talks, interviews, ad essays offers a memorable sample of wit, brilliance, and irrevence of the most celebrated physicist of our time. The more one reads of Feynman, the more one falls in love with his refreshingly enthusiastic view of the world.” ---Alan Guth, author of The Inflationary Universe“Feynman’s distinctive voice rings out in this book.” ---Scientific American

RALPH LEIGHTON:
Tuva or Bust!

It all began when Richard Feynman, Nobel Prize-winning physicist, jazz drummer, all-around character, and author of the bestselling “Surely You’re Joking Mr. Feynman!”, asked this question of his friend and collaborator Ralph Leighton over dinner one night. “Whatever happened to Tannu Tuva?” It took ten years to find the answer, as the two men followed a trail of dated travel journals and Soviet radio broadcasts to a remote region in central Asia--a place whose capital doesn’t have a single legitimate vowel and whose natives practice a bizarre form of “throat-singing.” This exhilarating book also records Feynman’s valiant ten-year struggle with cancer, his battle with NASA bureaucracy as he tried to unearth the truth about the Challenger disaster as a member of the Rogers Commission, and an extraordinary friendship between two zany strategists that ended only with Feynman’s death. Tuva or Bust! is high adventure of the mind and spirit, overflowing with intellectual curiosity and a sense of the utter gravity of fun.
