For the Great Explainer

20130511-134905.jpg

Today (May 11, 2013) is the birthday of this great man right here, Richard Feynman. He was quite an interesting character, and he knew what being a scientist was all about. He didn’t take it as a body of knowledge full of terms to memorize (in fact, he despised that definition) instead, he thought of it as a way of thinking and being human. This lead him to new discoveries, as well as being one of the most effective teachers ever. He also appreciated the arts, having created realistic drawings of people when he was not busy solving for Quantum Electro Dynamics. Happy Birthday, Richard “Dick” Feynman! 🙂
