Happy 97th birthday, Richard Feynmann! A theoretical physicist who got his start on the Manhattan Project, he was known for his work in quantum mechanics and quantum electrodynamics. Feynmann is probably best known for his work on the Rogers Commission, which investigated the Challenger disaster, demonstrating the failure of the space shuttle's O-rings at low temperatures.
