SCIENCE IS SO COOL LIKE
"We are like dwarfs sitting on the shoulders of giants. We see more, and things that are more distant, than they did, not because our sight is superior or because we are taller than they, but because they raise us up, and by their great stature add to ours."

This tumblr's for all the great men and women of science for whom we owe our current understanding of the natural world; their achievements, their failures, and even their quirks, we celebrate them all.

For Science. For Inquiry. For Humanity.

Richard Feynman (May 11, 1918 – February 15, 1988) was an American physicist who was famous for his work in quantum mechanics and on the Manhattan Project. His habits included safe-breaking and playing the bongos. In fact, he broke into a safe containing all U.S. nuclear secrets during his work on the Manhattan Project, and simply left a note telling the owners that he had been there. Charming, hilarious, and with a noteworthy ladies man, Feynman was a royal badass.
