As a young man, Richard Feynman worked on the development of the atomic bomb under the Manhattan Project before winning the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1965. His science lectures at the California Institute of Technology became the basis for a milestone series of books, The Feynman Lectures on Physics. And later in life, he played a pivotal role in the Rogers Commission, which investigated the 1986 Challenger shuttle disaster. But Feynman’s off-the-cuff style and quirky sense of humor were almost as legendary as his work. In Moving Bodies by Arthur Giron, we’ll hear about the many sides of Richard Feynman – the brilliant mathematician, bongo-playing eccentric, and doting husband and brother. Starring Alfred Molina as Richard Feynman.
