Feynman and Other Geekery

Posted by Nicole Sharp on 11 May 2006 at 23:38

Earlier this year, I took "Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman" with me on one of my graduate school visits and had a terrific time reading it on the Rapid and in the airport. I got so wrapped up in the life and thoughts of Richard Feynman that I hardly realized when I'd arrived. Today I came across a documentary with him, The Pleasure of Finding Things Out on Google Video. For anyone with fifty minutes to spare--finals end today, right?--I highly recommend it.

In other geeky news that I managed to miss while worrying about finals, one of my childhood idols, Eileen Collins, has announced that she is retiring from the space shuttle program.
