Richard P. Feynman died 25 year ago, today. This great man single handedly changed the world of theoretical physics and science in general, with his nobel prize winning work in quantum mechanics, quantum electrodynamics, superfluidity and particle physics. The sheer genius of this man and the amount of influence he has had on the world cannot be quantified. As of now, in my 22nd year of life, no one has influenced me more and changed the course of my life, more than Professor Feynman. Through his books, lectures, essays and videos, I rediscovered my passion for learning and have since dedicated my life to this pursuit. Thank you Professor, for all your work and the legacy you left behind.
"We are at the very beginning of time for the human race. It is not unreasonable that we grapple with problems. But there are tens of thousands of years in the future. Our responsibility is to do what we can, learn what we can, improve the solutions, and pass them on."
