Richard Feynman on worthwhile problems

Over at Scientific Indian blog, Selva has posted a fascinating letter from Richard Feynman to one of his former students. The letter is about what kinds of problems are worthwhile for a scientist to work on. The answer is not what you would think it is; it's far simpler!

    Amongst other things, Richard Hamming also has an interesting take on "important" research problems in his talk "You and your research".
