The Dr. Richard Feynman Observatory

This page is dedicated to Dr. Richard Feynman. Dr Feynman was a Nobel prize winning physicist. But, he was much, much more. He was a human being who showed a deep insight into human nature and could illustrate that insight in a meaningful and humerous way. His books, lectures and stories have been an inspiration to our family for many years. One of his best work is Surely You Are Joking Mr. Feynman. To learn more about Dr. Feynman, follow these links:
