Isaac Newton

Possibly the greatest and most influential scientist of all time, Sir Isaac Newton was born in Woolthorpe Manor, England. He excelled at school and in his years at Cambridge fundamentally changed the subjects of physics, math, optics and astronomy. This is the guy that defined the 3 laws of motion, figured out the visible spectrum, came up with Calculus as part of an investigation into geometry and physics, invented the reflecting telescope. To this day Isaac Newton embodies what it means to embody the phrase, “genius scientist”.
