Isaac Newton was the genius’s genius of the 17th century. Newton is clearly the most influential scientist who ever lived. His accomplishments in mathematics, optics, and physics laid the foundations for modern science and revolutionized the world. An 18th century poem written about Sir Isaac Newton states it best: “Nature and Nature’s laws lay hid in night: God said, Let Newton be! and all was light. – Alexander Pope”. There is a popular story that Newton was sitting under an apple tree, an apple fell on his head, and he suddenly thought of the Gravitation Law. No one knows if this istrue, but there were apple trees on his family’s property, and one of them may well have inspired him.
