Sir Isaac Newton is recognized as one of the greatest scientists and mathematicians of all time. His ideas were revolutionary and ultimately became the foundation of modern physics.

Born in Lincolnshire, England in 1642, he made significant contributions to the fields of mathematics, physics, astronomy, optics, and even theology. In 1686, he published a book where he presented his three laws of motion and revolutionized science. With his work, he was able to explain not just how things worked on Earth, but also in outer space. His ideas have influenced even modern inventions such as the airplane and space flight and helped us understand planetary motions.
