Hans Bethe: Quantum Theory Made (Relatively) Simple.

I found these lectures on the web the other day and wanted to share them.

Hans Bethe was perhaps the most impressive person I've ever seen speak in person. He was the last survivor of the the major players who had developed the atomic bomb. He died at his home on March 6, 2005. He was 98.

I read a pretty impressive book: Elegant Universe that I think was later turned into a series of videos by one of the cable channels.

Well worth the read to "get it" on physics, quantum theory, and all that.
