The Best Lines of Walter Lewin, MIT Physics Prof & Web Star

As The New York Times noted in a 2007 profile, Walter Lewin long had a cult following at MIT. But when his free courses went viral on the web (find them in the Physics section of our big collection of Free Online Courses), the physics prof became an “international Internet guru,” the first star of the open course movement. It’s a sign of his stardom that someone made a mashup of Lewin’s “best lines” (drawn, not spoken) from his Classical Mechanics course. For more great physics videos, don’t miss these items:
