Joan Feynman was not Richard Feynman's wife but his sister. She is an astrophysicst, who wiorked for NASSA on solar wind, among other things.

I have an advanced degree in Physics and can honestly say that Joan Feynman was Richard's wife. I do believe that you are wrong as you obviously just need a break from work to troll. Sad.

Since the clip has her talking about being woken up as a little girl to be shown the aurora by Richard, don't you think it more likely that she was his sister? Also see her Wikipedia entry - unless that's wrong. Just because you have a degree in astrophysics (advanced or not) does not mean you know anything about the families of scientists. Know when you expertise is relevant.

Latest comment: Oh, PG, don't feed the troll. Richard S, or Sam from Aberdeen, or Bob from Wasilla, or whatever he calls himself this week, is not to be talked to.

PGtips, is right. Richard Feynman was married three times, Firstly to Arline Greenbaum, then Mary Lou Bell and finally to Gweneth Howarth. Joan Feynman was his sister. You obviously just needed a break from work to tell people on forums about your advanced degree. Sad.

Apologies for assuming Joan Feynman was Richard Feynman's wife and not checking first. Thanks PGtips, I have corrected the description.
