“Poets say science takes away from the beauty of the stars – mere globs of gas atoms. I too can see the stars on a desert night, and feel them. But do I see less or more? The vastness of the heavens stretches my imagination – stuck on this carousel my little eye can catch one – million – year – old light. A vast pattern – of which I am a part… What is the pattern, or the meaning, or the why? It does not do harm to the mystery to know a little about it.”

― Richard P. Feynman

Who says physicists have no soul?

Richard Feynman, (1918 – 1988) was a brilliant and flamboyant American theoretical physicist. He worked extensively in quantum mechanics, quantum electrodynamics, particle physics and lots more. He was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1965, jointly with Julian Schwinger and Sin-Itiro Tomonaga. In a 1999 Physics World poll of 130 leading physicists he was ranked as one of the ten greatest physicists of all time. He was known as much for playing bongos in a strip club as he was for his contribution to physics. He had an amazing gift for communicating his passion and enthusiasm for science.
