Feynman's Lost Lecture by Richard P. Feynman

Book Description

On 14 March 1964 Richard Feynman, one of the greatest scientific thinkers of the 20th Century, delivered a lecture entitled 'The Motion of the Planets Around the Sun'. For thirty years this remarkable lecture was believed to be lost. But now Feynman's work has been reconstructed and explained in meticulous, accessible detail, together with a history of ideas of the planets' motions. The result is a vital and absorbing account of one of the fundamental puzzles of science, and an invaluable insight into Feynman's charismatic brilliance.

Reviews

UK Kirkus Review » Anything about Richard Feynman is sure to find a ready audience of people interested in science, and people interested in the greatest scientist of his generation. The latest addition to the canon is something of a curiosity - the 'lost lecture' is one that was left out of the famous lectures on physics in the 1960s, and deals with the motions of planets around the sun. The book is filled out with background material on the importance of Newton's discovery of the explanation for the elliptical orbits of the planets, and a touching reminiscence by David Goodstein, one of Feynman's colleagues at Caltech.
