    The Feynman Technique


    Support our channel with a small donation at

    Richard Feynman was a physicist who received a nobel prize for his work in quantum electrodynamics. He was notorious for asking his mathematicians to explain concepts in simple language to test their understanding.

    Here his unique technique to learn new materials:

    Step 1. Choose a topic you want to understand and start studying it. Once you know what it is about, take a piece of paper and write the topic at the top of the page.

    Step 2. Pretend you’re teaching the idea to someone else. Write out an explanation on the paper while you describe them out loud. Like this you get an idea of what you understand and where you still have gaps. Whenever you get stuck, go back and study. Repeat that process until you can explain it.

    Step 3. Finally do it again, but now simplify your language or use an analogy to make the point. If your explanation ends up wordy and confusing, that’s an indication that you do not understand the idea well enough. If that happens go back until you have mastered it.

    It is the process of thinking about an idea while teaching it that make the method so effective. Once you can explain an idea with simple language and create graphic analogies, you have deeply understood it and will remember it for a long time.

    Richard Feynman - Problem Solving


    Richard Feynman was one of the greatest problem solvers of the 20th century and loved being puzzled and solving puzzles, a quality that made him a legendary physicist. To be good at science is to be good at being puzzled and seeing puzzles in everyday phenomena that are taken for granted, allowing you to see what is right in front of you in a new and exciting point of view. This allows for huge developments and innovations that are completely different from anything before.

    One of the 3 winners of the 1965 Nobel prize in Physics for his work, Feynman is was an expert on quantum mechanics and developed the Path Integral formulation of Relativistic Quantum mechanics, used in Quantum Field Theory, interpreted the Born series of scattering amplitudes as vertices and Green's function propagators in his famous diagrams, the Feynman Diagrams, and also worked on the fundamental excitations in Liquid Helium leading to a correct model describing superfluidity using phonons, maxons and rotons to describe the various excitation curves.

    During the Manhatten Project, Richard Feynman performed theoretical calculations on the first nuclear weapons developed during the Manhatten project with his supervisor Hans Bethe. They extended Serber's original formula for the yield of a nuclear weapon and developed the Bethe-Feynman formula, which is still classified by the US government even today.

    Other fields of work include the Wheeler-Feynman Absorber Theory for Electromagnetic Radiation, developed with his colleague John A. Wheeler, which was the first attempt to create a theory of electromagnetism that obeys time-reversal theory.

    He also developed the Feynman-Hellmann Theorem, which can be formulated from his own Path Intregral interpretation and relate the derivative of the total energy of any system to the expectation value of the derivative of the Hamiltonian with respect to a single parameter, e.g volume.

    This theory makes possible the calculation of the intramolecular forces of individual molecule in terms of the electronic density (ρ(r)) and the atomic coordinates and nuclear charges of the individual atoms. This, simulated on computers, allows dynamical molecular and quantum systems to be simulated on powerful computers. Such technology is only beginning to have applications in the fields of simulating how proteins fold, how to design drugs that act specifically on biochemical processes and how to simulate quantum logic and computation, something Feynman had predicted long before before the first atomic traps were invented.

    Feynman was also a huge visionary in the fields of nanotechnology and small scale manufacturing, something which has led to the modern age and continues to accelerate to new developments in human civilization today.

    A SpaceX Falcon 9 launched 10 satellites Iridium-2 NEXT and landed again | SpaceX News.


    SpaceX launched the Iridium-2 from Space Launch Complex 4E (SLC-4E) at Vandenberg Air Force Base in California. Falcon-9 landed on the droneship “Just Read The Instruction” The instantaneous launch window was at 1:25 p.m. PDT, or 20:25 UTC, on Sunday, June 25. A backup launch opportunity was opened at 1:19 p.m. PDT, or 20:19 UTC, on Monday, June 26.
    Elon Musk said: Flying with larger & significantly upgraded hypersonic grid fins. Single piece cast & cut titanium. Can take reentry heat with no shielding.
    SpaceX’s Falcon 9 rocket delivered 10 satellites to low-Earth orbit for Iridium, a global leader in mobile voice and data satellite communications. This is the second set of 10 satellites in a series of 75 total satellites that SpaceX will launch for Iridium’s next generation global satellite constellation, Iridium® NEXT. The satellites will begin deployment about an hour after launch.
    After a successful first launch, the next order of business is ensuring that each of the first ten satellites successfully arrived in orbit and telemetry has been received. Iridium is proud to share that all ten Iridium NEXT satellites have successfully been deployed...
    Mission covers delivering to orbit ten satellites operated by Iridium on atop of Falcon-9 rocket and was originally scheduled for October 2016.
    Iridium Next satellites are next generation of iridium satellites created to replace previous satellites and enhance Iridium satellite phone network. They were designed by Thales Alenia Space in the cooperation with Orbital Sciences Corporation as payload and bus integrator. Their payload is transponders operating in L band and Ka band (crosslink and downlink). Each satellite weighs 800 kg and is powered with two solar arrays. Iridium NEXT has at least ten years of operational life and will be placed on LEO with 780 km × 780 km with inclination at 86.4°.
    Iridium is replacing its existing constellation by sending 75 Iridium NEXT satellites into space on a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket over 8 different launches.
    Update – May 25, 2017
    Enabling a future of possibilities
    Iridium NEXT will dramatically enhance Iridium's ability to meet the growing demand for global mobile communications on land, at sea and in the skies. Iridium enables partners to create innovative products and solutions that haven’t even been conceived of yet, made possible through the flexibility of Iridium’s network. Iridium NEXT will:
    • Support more bandwidth and higher speeds for new products
    • Enable partner solutions on a scale not yet imagined
    • Provide service continuity and backwards compatibility
    • Support Aireon’s aircraft tracking service as well as other Hosted Payload missions
    • Be the World’s First Turnkey Platform for Innovative New Capabilities by supporting new Iridium PRIME℠ satellites

    Richard Feynman - The World from another point of view


    The famous American physicist Richard Feynman used to take holidays in England. His third wife, Gweneth Howarth, was a native of West Yorkshire, so every year the Feynman family would visit her hometown of Ripponden or the nearby hamlet of Mill Bank.

    In 1973 Yorkshire public television made a short film of the Nobel laureate while he was there. The resulting film, Take the World From Another Point of View, was broadcast in America as part of the PBS Nova series. The documentary features a fascinating interview, but what sets it apart from other films on Feynman is the inclusion of a lively conversation he had with the eminent British astrophysicist Fred Hoyle.

    Most people, if asked to prove that the earth is round, would not even bother to produce the rather weak arguments I have outlined above. They would start off by saying that ‘everyone knows’ the earth to be round, and if pressed further, would become angry. In a way Shaw is right. This is a credulous age, and the burden of knowledge which we now have to carry is partly responsible.
