Richard Feynman: The Pleasure of Finding Things Out

  • Published 1 year ago

The pleasure of finding things out filmed in 1981 and delight and inspire all who want to share some of the joy of scientific discovery. Feynman is a master storyteller and his tales – about childhood, Los Alamos, or how he won the Nobel Prize – are a vivid and entertaining insight into the mind of a great scientist at work and play.

In this candid interview Feynman affects a wide range of topics, from the beauty of the nature of particle physics. He explains things that are difficult to understand in simple terms like Carl Sagan Cosmos did in the series. His explanation of the scientific method understands what we know, we know why and most importantly, we do not know and the pleasure of imagining them out.

While the video quality is less than desirable content of this program more than compensates. Professor Sir Harry Kroto, Nobel Laureate in Chemistry said: “The 1981 Feynman Horizon is the best science program I have seen. This is not just my opinion – is also the opinion of many of the best scientists I know who have seen the program … You have to see compulsory for all students, whether students of science or the arts. “
