Krauss on writing about scientific icon Feynman

Posted: Mar 15, 2011 | 2 min 03 sec

"Richard Feynman was one of the most colorful physicists of the 20th century but more importantly, he was one of the most beloved and important physicists as well,” says Lawrence Krauss, a theoretical physicist and cosmologist at ASU who’s written a new book about Feynman.

In “Quantum Man: Richard Feynman’s Life in Science,” Krauss depicts the Nobel Prize winning Feynman as more than “just” a brain. He paints a picture of Feynman, a sprightly and multifaceted man of varied talents and intellectual pursuits ranging from percussion to Mayan hieroglyphs, by exploring the essence of the man as seen through his scientific contributions.

In this video, Krauss talks about what he hoped to convey in this scientific biography.
