The Vega Science Trust - Richard Feynman :: a series of lectures that put my college professors to shame

I stumbled across these a while back and they are fantastic. No one breaks it down like Feynman. It's like having physics explained to you by your local gas station attendant. For anyone that's into it, I highly recommend "The Character of Physical Law", which is the transcripts of a series of talks Feynman did for the BBC back in the day. Rock on for science!

We're publishing a set of Feynman lecture CDs at Basic Books -- they'll be available to purchase in a few months, I think with an accompanying book.

Sweet as candy! I listened to library copies of Six Easy Pieces but they were very hard to hear at times. This is so killer. Book marked and sent along to several folks. I would never have thought to look for such a thing. Big merci!

He is just way more fun to listen to than most stories, and I am not pretending to get it all either, but he had such a way with explaining things to everyman. Gotta love that quality.

You have it with politics and other things that mystify me often. Not to assume anything, but without such types of communicators, I would never look up at much in the world and I know I am not alone. Never undervalue it or doubt it for a second.

Okay, I have to do some watching now.
