    SCIENCE EDUCATION: Richard Feynman - The World From Another Point of View (10 APRIL)

    This coming Friday's (10 April) SCIENCE EDUCATION will feature one of the great minds of the 20th century - Richard Feynman.

    Feynman was a colourful character, who besides being a physicist, played the bongo drums and was an expert at picking locks.

    He was the youngest scientist on the Manhatten Project that built the first atom bomb.

    His pioneering physics lectures were so inspiring that they were collated by some of his colleagues and turned into a best selling book.

    Feynman diagrams are now part of established physics and without them our understanding of the subatomic world would have been seriously jeopardised.

    Even when the man was dying of cancer he was called upon by NASA to be part of the committee that looked into the Challenger disaster where the shuttle blew up seconds after lift off from earth. He prevented the whitewash by the committee which NASA hoped to be a mere PR stunt to reinforce the official explanation for the disaster. By using his science skills of enquiry and marshalling the evidence, he correctly diagnosed the real cause of the accident.

    In this video, (Richard Feynman - The world from another point of view), Feynman explains how he thinks, tackles issues and what captures his interests. He comes over as the likeable cosummate scientists he was.

    Bro, this is the actual science education piece and therefore should be in the science/tech section and not in the announcements.

    Thanks
