"Best science lectures I've ever seen"
Bill Gates discusses how he and a friend discovered Dr. Richard Feynman’s Messenger Lecture Series in the 1980s, browsing a university library for something interesting to learn while on vacation. From that moment on he became a big fan of this lecture series that makes science fun and approachable. He later bought limited rights to stream the lectures and as a result, we continue to host this brilliant series of seven videos. We hope you enjoy Feynman’s ability to speak on the “Character of Physical Law” showcasing his unique blend of humor and clarity and that it inspires future generations to learn about science.
