“The first principle is that you must not fool yourself — and you are the easiest person to fool.” Richard Feynman

Many consider him to be the father of nanotechnology for two prizes he offered in a 1959 talk entitled, “There’s Plenty of Room at the Bottom,” where he prompted thinking on a very small scale. He offered a prize for the world’s smallest motor, and another challenge involving very small writing; so small that the text of the Encyclopedia Britannica could be contained on the head of a pin. The prize for the motor was claimed almost immediately, but the challenge of the writing wasn’t met for over 20 years. Between 1961-3 Feynman gave a series of lectures on introductory physics for freshmen and the following year, sophomores, at Caltech. The series was edited and published as The Feynman Lectures of Physics, which is thought to be the most popular physics book ever written.

His most public achievement came in 1965, when he won the Nobel Prize in Physics, sharing it with Julian Schwinger and Shin’ichiro Tomonaga for their independent work in quantum electrodynamics. In 1986, he was again in the public eye, this time working on the commission investigating the explosion of the Challenger space shuttle. He died in 1988 after a long battle with abdominal cancer.

This Lithograph is category B. It may have small cuts, and bruises on the edges (the beauty of original vintage) which can be seen on the high res. pop-up image of the product. A little crumbled upper edges and absolute tiny cuts grade it to a serious good shape B. We do not do any kind of restoration to our original vintage products. It took a long time for them to become vintage. Any form of restoration like linen backing should be decided by the new owner.
