One of the best known and most renowned scientists in history, Richard Feynman pioneered quantum mechanics. His knack for accessible explanations made him a popularizer of physics of equal distinction to laypeople.

Why you should listen to him:

Richard Feynman began his career at a crossroads in history, assisting the Manhattan Project with the development of the atomic bomb. Soon he was producing breakthrough understandings of particle physics and quantum mechanics, for which he won the Nobel Prize in 1965. His pictorial representations of the actions of subatomic particles are still widely used today (they're now called Feynman diagrams). "At twenty-three ... there was no physicist on earth who could match his exuberant command over the native materials of theoretical science. [...] Feynman seemed to possess a frightening ease with the substance behind the equations, like Albert Einstein at the same age, like the Soviet physicist Lev Landau -- but few others." -James Gleick
