Maxwell's Equations

I need a short break from human stupidity.  Here are Maxwell’s Equations,  one of the most elegant and beautiful things the human mind has managed to discover

From the  site: James Clerk Maxwell [1831-1879] was an Einstein/Newton-level genius who took a set of known experimental laws (Faraday's Law, Ampere's Law) and unified them into a symmetric coherent set of Equations known as Maxwell's Equations. Maxwell was one of the first to determine the speed of propagation of electromagnetic (EM) waves was the same as the speed of light - and hence to conclude that EM waves and visible light were really the same thing.

The site  has everything  on  Maxwell's Equations 

 I only recently found out that the Feynman's Lectures on Physics are today available free on the internet
