Richard Feynman was a physicist whose "Feynman Lines" are famous. He played drums with the Tuval throat singers in the hinterlands between China and Russia. Carl Sagan was an astrophysicist whose t.v. show and books were famous.
Richard Feynman was an American theoretical physicist. He was most known for his work in the path integral formulation of quantum mechanics, the theory of quantum electrodynamics, and the physics of the superfluidity of supercooled liquid helium.
According to Richard Feynman: "All things are made of atoms- little particles that move around in perpetual moti0on, attracting each other when they are a little disctance appart, but repealing upon being squeezed into one another."
Yes Feynman won a Nobel Prize for his contributions to physics (quantum electrodynamics) but he was interested in EVERYTHING, from drumming to travel to remote foreign places. You can see him drumming on YouTube...
The Nobel Prize in Physics 1965 was awarded jointly to Sin-Itiro Tomonaga, Julian Schwinger and Richard P. Feynman for their fundamental work in quantum electrodynamics, with deep-ploughing consequences for the physics of elementary particles.
According to Richard Feynman in his book "Surely you're joking Mr. Feynman" the answer is no. I was doing research on this too to see it that was correct. Apparently Feynman watched the test of the atomic bomb through the… Full Answer
