Filmed at Cornell University in November, 1964, the Nobel Prize winning physicist delivers a lecture on the distinction between the past and the future, the law of entropy and the history of the universe.
One of the greatest physicists of all time, Feynman (1918 - 1988) has been credited with pioneering the field of quantum computing and introducing the concept of nanotechnology. He was a keen popularizer of physics through books and lectures.
“For a successful technology, reality must take precedence over public relations, for nature cannot be fooled.” - Feynman in Appendix F to the Rogers Commission report, which investigated the Challenger disaster.

One of the great unsolved problems of modern physics is coming up with a theory of everything
The idea that the universe splits into multiple realities with every measurement has become an increasingly popular proposed solution to the mysteries of quantum mechanics.
You wouldn’t find baseballs entangled in such a way that hitting one affects another miles away.
In a new paper, physicists argue that axions could explain why the universe isn’t empty
Of the 2 trillion galaxies contained within our observable Universe, 94% are already forever beyond our reach
In an incredible first, scientists have captured the world's first actual photo of quantum entanglement
The laws of physics imply that the passage of time is an illusion. To avoid this conclusion, we might have to rethink the reality of infinitely precise numbers.
If you were to go as far out into space as you can imagine, what would you encounter?
These black hole opposites would spew energy, be impossible to enter, and might even answer some of the universe’s fundamental questions.
In a curved universe, no matter which direction you travel in, you will end up at the starting point
Recent experiments have put relatively large objects into quantum states, illuminating the processes by which the ordinary world emerges out of the quantum one.
The Born rule, which connects the math of quantum theory to the outcomes of experiments, has been derived from simpler physical principles.
A new model suggests that these subatomic particles may not be so fundamental after all.
Three physicists wanted to calculate how neutrinos change. They ended up discovering an unexpected relationship between some of the most ubiquitous objects in math.
There is a mystery that has confounded scientists for a century.
New evidence shows that the key assumption made in the discovery of dark energy is in error
