WOW! The Feynman Lectures on Physics Available On The Web

I still have the 3-volume set in storage here somewhere. I haven’t read them in ages but they were my absolutely favourite textbooks ever.“Caltech and The Feynman Lectures Website are pleased to present this online edition of The Feynman Lectures on Physics. Now, anyone with internet access and a web browser can enjoy reading a high quality up-to-date copy of Feynman’s legendary lectures.” Feynman was a great scientist and lecturer and the books were basically transcribed from audio recordings of his lectures. He was famous for some fundamental science and later for his analysis of the “Space Shuttle Disaster”, but for me he was always the guy who could make the obscure clear. You could read those books and understand what he was saying and the science behind Nature’s mysteries.

The lectures are not FLOSS. They are read-only… We wouldn’t really want to change a jot or tittle of it anyway. Caltech did use FLOSS tools to publish the work, converting LaTex to HTML.
