The Anasazi Heritage Center
The Anasazi Heritage Center (AHC) is an archaeological museum that displays and preserves artifacts and records from excavations on public lands in the Four Corners area, one of the richest archaeological regions in the United States. Our goal is to increase public awareness of archaeology, cultural resources, and the Ancestral Puebloan culture.
The museum features permanent displays on the Ancestral Pueblo people, and on the techniques that allow modern archaeologists to reveal the past. Many of our exhibits are hands-on and interactive. You can weave on a loom, grind corn meal on a metate, examine tiny traces of the past through microscopes, and handle real artifacts

Although American physicist Richard Feynman won the Nobel prize in 1965, it was his books of anecdotes ("Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!" and "What Do You Care What Other People Think?") and his appointment to the presidential Challenger disaster investigation commission in 1986, that raised him to icon status. Feynman was an independent thinker, extremely intolerant of stupidity. Learn why Feynman fans are so devoted at today's website picks.

Feynman liked to remind physicists that they were not nearly as close to discovering the meaning of it all as they sometimes believed. "Indeed, Feynman has said, physicists ought to put a special sign in their offices to remind themselves of how much they don't know. The message on the sign would be very simple It would consist entirely of one word, or, rather, number: 137." Visit Charles Mann's site to learn the significance of this special number, which physicists call alpha.

Collected Thoughts: Richard Feynman
To keep himself "focused on Life's important questions," twenty-five year old Erik Madsen created a collection of writings from a handful of great thinkers. The Feynman page delivers a short bio and eight articles, excerpted from three of his books. Because I find them most accessible, my favorites are the three stories from "Surely You're Joking, Mr. Feynman!" Other featured thinkers include authors Mark Twain and J.R.R. Tolkien, and physicist Robert Oppenheimer.

Feynman Online
This Feynman fan site (part of the Feynman Web Ring) has a message forum, and good collection of Feynman anecdotes. Best clicks are the personal stories found in the Guest Book and Anecdotes, and the articles (both onsite and off) in Life & Science. Don't miss the two Feynman Think Different posters created by Apple as part of their 1998 ad campaign. You'll find them under Other Good Stuff.
