Amazon.com description: Product Description: One of the greatest physicists of the twentieth century, Richard Feynman possessed an unquenchable thirst for adventure and a great ability to tell the stories of his life. In one of the book’s many stories we meet his first wife, Arlene, who taught him of love’s mystery as she lay dying in a hospital while he worked nearby on the atomic bomb at Los Alamos. Feynman also discusses the investigation of the 1986 explosion of the Challenger space shuttle and his experiment that revealed the disaster’s cause.
