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.

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.
