Richard Feynman was a keen popularizer of physics through both books and lectures. He was an American physicist known for his work in quantum mechanics and particle physics. He assisted in the development of the atomic bomb and was a member of the panel that investigated the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster. He also pioneered the field of quantum computing, and introduced the concept of nanotechnology. During his lifetime, Feynman became one of the best-known scientists in the world.
Richard Phillips Feynman (11 May 1918 - 15 Feb 1988) was an American theoretical physicist 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, as well as in particle physics. For his contributions to the development of quantum electrodynamics, Feynman, jointly with Julian Schwinger and Sin-Itiro Tomonaga, received the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1965
