Los Alamos From Below – Complete Audio

Posted on February 13, 2009. Filed under: Humor, science | Tags: , , , |

For the uninitiated, “Los Alamos From Below” talk given by Nobel Laurate Richard Feynman at Santa Barbara on February 6, 1975. Richard Feynman was a theoretical physicist, an artist, a story teller all rolled into one. This unusual combination make him a curious character, who could not be ignored!

I personally am a great fan of his, and admire him for the kind of radiant personality he had. His hilarious experiments, his awkward social moments, his experiments on human phenomenon like dreams never cease to amaze anyone.

“Los Alamos From Below” is the story of how he was involved in the Manhattan Project, which gave the world the first nuclear bomb. Far from being a technical talk, this is actually quite funny, and very interesting for the unique narration style.
