Isaac Newton

Isaac Newton was born on the 4th of January, 1643, in Woolsthorpe, in England. Isaac Newton was an established physicist, Mathematician, and is credited as one of the greatest scientist ever.

In 1687 he published his most acclaimed work, Philosophy, Natrualis, Principia, and Mathematica. In 1665, the Great Plague that was ravaging Europe had to come to Cambridge, forcing the university, in which he was a student, had to close. It was in that 18 month (1 ½ years) that he had figured out/ invented Calculus, found foundations for his theory of light and color, and gained significant insight into the laws of Planetary motion, or in other words he figured out why the planets go in an oval not a circle and that Jupiter had moon circling it, his discoveries led to the publishing his book Principia in 1687.

In 1669, Newton received his Master of Arts degree before he had turned 27 years old. In June 1669, Barrow shared the uncredited manuscript with British mathematician John Collins. In August1669, Barrow intended its author to Collins as “Mr. Newton… a very young man… but of extraordinary genius…”

In 1668 improved the telescope that helped his study our solar system. In 1678, Newton suffered a severe nervous breakdown. In August 1684, Halley traveled to Cambridge to visit with Newton, who was coming out of his seclusion.

In 1687, the same year that Principia were published, his beloved companion and niece died. Hook refused to retire his job until his death which was in 1703. In 1689 Newton was elected to represent Cambridge in Parliament.

In 1693 Newton fell into another nervous breakdown. In 1696 Newton was able to attain the governmental position he long sought to have. In that same year he moved in with his niece Catherine Barton.

In 1703, in a controversy that had been brewing for several years, German mathematician Gottfried Leibniz publically accused Newton of plagiarizing his research, and that he had invented Calculus several the publication or Principia. In 1712, the Royal Society appointed a committee to investigate the matter. Isaac Newton was the president of the Royal Society.

On the 19th of March, 1727, Newton experienced a severe pain in his abdomen and went unconscious, and never gain conscience and died the next morning.

Those who love to build, upgrade, an invent new electronics, etc… or anything that has to do with math, astronomy/ space, and so on, owes it to Newton for inventing Calculus, improved the telescope, found out why the Sun is the center of the Galaxy (not universe), and even found out Gravity.
