Feynman explaining QED

People I would have loved to have a drink with includes Richard Feynman. I never had the good fortune of meeting the man or even sitting in at one of his lectures. But thanks to the magic of the world wide web, at least I can get a good idea of how delightful he must have been in person. So get yourself a large coffee, sit back, and learn from the master as you watch the Sir Douglas Robb Memorial Lectures delivered in 1979 at the University of Auckland. “A set of four priceless archival recordings from the University of Auckland (New Zealand) of the outstanding Nobel prize-winning physicist Richard Feynman – arguably the greatest science lecturer ever. Although the recording is of modest technical quality the exceptional personal style and unique delivery shine through.”

    Thanks a ton for posting the same.
    On top of everything, Feynman has a good sense of humor.

    Thanks for providing the link to the lectures. After reading “Surely You’re Joking, Mr Feynman” and his “Lectures on Physics”, I have also come to admire him a lot.

    His books serve as examples of how to simplify a hardcore science subject like Physics. His masterpiece, “Surely You’re Joking, Mr Feynman”, throws light on lighter side of his character.
