Richard Feynman was a keen popularizer of physics through both books and lectures. He was an American physicist known for his work in quantum mechanics and particle physics. He assisted in the development of the atomic bomb and was a member of the panel that investigated the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster. He also pioneered the field of quantum computing, and introduced the concept of nanotechnology. During his lifetime, Feynman became one of the best-known scientists in the world.
