QED, probably. That's what he won the Nobel for, IIRC.

PS: did you know that your feature to "combat malicious comment posting" applies to both ObWi and WLM? I've been trying to post this (banal) comment for about five minutes, stymied because I just posted on the other blog...

See, this is why I asked; I didn't know about the Nobel. True, I could have, you know, looked it up, but that would have gotten in the way of the drinking and the watching of the Kung Fu Hustle and the ritual sacrifice of the watermelon.

PS: I think that your posting issues are the result of TypePad; the two blogs you mention are both 'theirs', after all, and I haven't fiddled much with the default settings on this one.

QED is quantum electrodynamics, just for the record. :) It's also what I'd go with for his greatest contribution to physics, at least in terms of materially expanding our understanding of the science.

In terms of his contribution to the field, I'd say it was probably functionally the same thing as "inspiring a bunch of kids" - teaching that although physics is a serious business, that doesn't mean you have to be serious about it all the time.

Moe, if you're interested in Feynman past last night's debauched inquisitiveness (he would've loved that), I recommend (again) Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman and The Pleasure of Finding Things Out, as well as Feynman's Rainbow, which is a memorial written by a colleague.
