Feynman Fest

It looks like they had a fun time at a TEDx event at Caltech this past Friday to celebrate Richard Feynman.

The seminal lecture series he delivered there a half-century ago, as well as the more eccentric strains of his life, inspired "Feynman's Vision: The Next 50 Years," an all-day event that drew more than 1200 people to the institute's campus Friday.

Timed to coincide with the anniversary of the physicist's lecture series, the event brought a constellation of leading scientists and other innovators together for quick, intense lectures on a range of subjects, all organized under the rubric of TEDx, the localized version of nonprofit TED's free lecture series.

You can learn more about these lectures at the Caltech's TEDx website.
