Aber auch die Motivation Feynmans, zu den höchsten Gipfeln der Wissenschaft vorzudringen, wird aus diesen Geschichten deutlich: die Neugier.

It is a mortal sin. Despite the secrecy, we know of many famous holders of discretionary deposits. One was Henry Beaufort, bishop of Winchester, half brother of Henry IV. Was his soul at risk?
