Happy Birthday, Richard Feynman, Physicist, Pioneer

“I was born not knowing and have only had a little time to change that here and there.”

Richard Feynman, Ph.D.

One of the most respected scientists of the past century, Richard Feynman was a brilliant physicist, Nobel Laureate and U.S. Educator.

I had the pleasure to know him at Los Alamos National Laboratory. Enjoyed Dr. Feynman presenting his theory on quantum computing.

After his talk there was a long pause.

Then, a world-class engineer asked: “But what about stimulated emission?”

Dr. Feynman: “I never said it would be easy.” Classic Feynman.

May 11, 1918 – February 15, 1988
