Today would have been the 98th birthday of Richard Feynman, the CalTech physicist who worked on theories to explain quantum mechanics. Feynman was known for his wide-ranging interests scientific and musical and for offering quotable aphorisms like:

Science is what we do to keep from lying to ourselves

An archival BBC interview presents Feynman's thinking on fire, magnets, and rubber bands at the scale of the jiggling atoms. It is a conversation in physics that reveals a nano-world fun to imagine. Too bad the celebrated thinker isn't here to present his thoughts on the natural world and the complexity of ecology.
