Eta Island (Ruby Archipelago)
Feynman's Threads is a right-facing tailor bazaar on Eta Island. It was erected in August 2004 under the governance of the flag Silver Dawn. The deed holder is the current elected governor of Eta. Feynman's Threads continues the basic Eta Island naming scheme of scientific related terms or puns. This building was named after American Physicist Richard Feynman.
Richard Feynman (1918-1988)
Feynman was one of the most influential American physicists of the 20th century, expanding greatly the theory of quantum electrodynamics. As well as being an inspiring lecturer and amateur musician, he helped in the development of the atomic bomb and was later a member of the panel which investigated the Space Shuttle Challenger disaster. For his work on quantum electrodynamics, Feynman was one of the recipients of the Nobel Prize in Physics for 1965, along with Julian Schwinger and Shin-Ichiro Tomonaga.
He is also famous for his many adventures, detailed in the books Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!, What Do You Care What Other People Think? and Tuva Or Bust!. Richard Feynman was, in many respects, an eccentric and a free spirit.
