About Project Tuva

Project Tuva home pageMicrosoft Research Project Tuva presents Nobel Prize winning physicist Richard Feynman's Messenger Series lectures within an enhanced video player. This player features searchable video, linked transcripts, user notes, and interactive extras.

The lectures have been enhanced with commentary by Dr. Robert Jaffe, a physics professor at MIT, who provides a wealth of information regarding his own personal experience with Feynman, insights into how science has progressed in the 45 years since the lectures were originally made, and deeper exploration of key concepts that Feynman introduces.
