All Genius. All Buffoon.

100 Years of Richard Feynman: A Documentary

In 2018 the Nobel Prize winning physicist Richard Feynman would’ve turned 100 years old. But Richard Feynman was so much more than just one of the greatest physicists, the greatest scientists, of the 20th century. He was a beautiful writer, a man of boundless curiosity, a bongo player, a clown. Fellow physicist Freeman Dyson once said that Feynman was “Half genius, half buffoon”. He would later revise those words, replacing them with “All genius, all buffoon.”
