“He loved a big stage,” says Carroll. “He was a performer as well as a scientist. He could explain things in different ways than the professionals thought about them. He could break things down into their constituent pieces and speak a language that you already shared. He was an amazingly good teacher and students loved him unconditionally.”
I was just curious. Does anyone know what Facebook page mentioned this post this morning? Thanks in advance.
This website celebrates those multitalented people whose accomplishments span three or more fields of research and creative expression. They turn out to be more numerous than you might think!

At Los Alamos, Feynman was assigned to Hans Bethe's Theoretical (T) Division,  and impressed Bethe enough to be made a group leader.  He and Bethe developed the Bethe–Feynman formula for calculating the yield of a fission bomb , which built upon previous work by Robert Serber .  As a junior physicist, he was not central to the project. He administered the computation group of human computers in the theoretical division. With Stanley Frankel and Nicholas Metropolis , he assisted in establishing a system for using IBM punched cards for computation.  He invented a new method of computing logarithms that he later used on the Connection Machine .   Other work at Los Alamos included calculating neutron equations for the Los Alamos "Water Boiler", a small nuclear reactor , to measure how close an assembly of fissile material was to criticality.
