Feynman Lectures on the Character of Physical Law

I’m going to be a bit busy today so by way of a post here’s a marvellous video showing the great Richard Feynman delivering a lecture at Cornell University in 1964, in full, complete with a lengthy introduction (but with some glitches in the film). This is the first in a series of four lectures called the Messenger Lectures, and is on the subject of the Law of Gravitation. The clip not only shows what a great showman Feynman was but also how he was able to talk in an interesting and original way about seemingly very familiar material. Do check out the other videos in this series; they’re really marvellous. Oh to be as gifted a communicator of science as Feynman!
