Richard Feynman Explains How Fire Comes From “Jiggling”

Celebrated theoretical physicist and a pioneering researcher in quantum computing and nano-technology – the late Richard Feynman – was also a champion of logical reasoning and a true believer of an intellectually curious lifestyle. His lectures on the laws of physical phenomenon, like gravity and light, that govern everything from the tiniest sub-atomic particles to the entire f*cking universe are considered to be some of the most enlightening and entertaining explanations on the subject. He was a life long learner which gave him a focus that was fine-tuned for every aspect of information he received and he had the skill and enthusiasm to explain complex ideas and concepts in ways that transmitted that enthusiasm to the listener.

Here is he is explaining how and why carbon atoms, fire, trees and the sun ‘jiggle’ around us.
