Physical Insights

An independent scientist’s observations on society, technology, energy, science and the environment. “Modern science has been a voyage into the unknown, with a lesson in humility waiting at every stop. Many passengers would rather have stayed home.” – Carl Sagan

I was browsing a used-books store today, (one of my favorite pastimes) when I came across a delightful surprise: The Feynman Lectures on Physicson audiotape.

Yes, it’s a set of those cassettes of magnetic tape, that I’m just barely old enough to remember, and some kids these days have probably never seen 😉

I’m not sure if there’s much point in me buying them, though, because I don’t have a cassette tape player… 😦
Now I know how NASA feels.

The post title is a reference to how a colleague of mine once described Feynman’s distinctive New York (?) accent, after listening to a recording of Feynman giving an interview or lecture.
