Richard Feynman – No Ordinary Genius

This was and is a great documentary. The entire thing is now available on YouTube and its great to see. I have this on DVD but I’m delighted that a wider audience will get to see this. Feynman wasn’t just a genius, he was a “character” who played bongo drums, talked about the interaction of art and science, and solved the mystery of why the Shuttle Challenger went down by dipping a piece of O ring in ice water.
