Everything Is Moved By Love

The Russian poet and essayist, Osip Mandelstam, once wrote, “Everything is moved by love.”  Take that concept out of metaphysical terms and into more scientific, practical ones. 1,080 more words

To Feynman on his 100th birthday

The Feynman legend, pundits say
Began in Queens – Far Rockaway.

百年華誕紀念:繼續鬧吧,費曼先生

此文章為立場特約邀稿,原於 2018 年 5 月 11 日刊於立場新聞

一百年前今天,理查.費曼 (Richard Feynman, 1918–1988) 在美國紐約出生。他的父親梅爾維爾.費曼 (Melville Feynman) 移民自白俄羅斯猶太家庭;母親露西樂.菲利普 (Lucille Phillips) 則來自波蘭猶太家庭。費曼五歲時,父母誕下了第二個兒子。不幸地,這個孩子在四週大時夭折。費曼的妹妹喬安.費曼 (Joan Feynman) 在他九歲時出生。

費曼是誰?他是理論物理學家、諾貝爾奬得主、開創量子電動力學、發明費曼圖;他亦傳奇無數,曾偷偷打開放有原子彈機密的夾萬、為脫衣舞廳老闆出庭作證、在皇室面前邊抽煙邊講爛笑話、身為物理系教授跑到生物系與學生一起上課做功課、飛到巴西參加音樂表演等。費曼從不介意別人目光,他甚至寫自傳細說這些離經叛道的行徑,使他可能成為物理學界裡比愛因斯坦更有名的物理學家。

100 Years of Feynman

Today marks the centenary of the birth of Noble Prize-winning physicist, science communicator and bongo player Richard Feyman. It’s great to see so many articles about him today, so I was wondering how to do my own quick tribute before I head to London for the Royal Astronomical Society Annual General Meeting this afternoon. 1,020 more words
