  • Apple Falls on His Head!!!

    Apple Falls on His Head!!!
    An apple falls on Newton's head when he is sleeping under an apple tree. He wondered why things always fell down, and that got him interested in studying gravity and motion.
  • Hooke Makes Newton Mad

    Hooke Makes Newton Mad
    A man named Robert Hooke criticized Newton strongly because he disagreed about what Newton found out about elliptical orbits in the galaxy. This made Newton angry.
  • Calculus Fight

    Calculus Fight
    A man named John Leibniz and Isaac study calculus at the same time ,and Isaac officially "invented" it first ,but Leibniz published his work first.
  • Study Of the Moon

    Isaac pays a visit to head astronomer John Flamsteed to gather information about the moon, his latest craze.
  • Principia

    This was the year he wrote his most famous book, Principia. This book was written about his three laws of motion, which was cited for being the greatest science book of all time.
  • His Only Friend

    After publishing his book, he became a celebrity and met a man named Fatio, who became good friends with Newton and may have been the only friend Isaac ever had.

    Getting Knighted
    While the book did not mention this, I thought it was important to know that Isaac Newton, recognized for his scientific contributions, was knighted by Queen Anne, making him Sir Isaac Newton
  • Old, But Still Bright

    Old, But Still Bright
    As an old man, he blew bubbles to study how gravity affects bigger or smaller and heavier or lighter things. Some of the things he discovered as an elderly man effect us and how we interpret things today. Later that year he died.
  • Impact

    After Newton's death, his name spread throughout the world and he soon had many admirerers who idolized him. His discovery of the three laws of motion are extremely important to science today. People would have not created rockets, remote control toys, or even bowling! Without Newton, where would we be?!
