Isaac Newton from Top 10 Scientists Of All Time
Newton was English natural thinker, generally considered to be the most original and important theoretician in the history of science. In addition to his innovation of the infinitesimal calculus and a new possibility of light and color, Newton changed the construction of physics together with his three laws of motion and the law of universal gravity. As the keystone of the technological revolution of the seventeenth century, Newton's work mixed the contributions of Copernicus,Descartes, Galileo, Kepler, and some others great minds into a young and powerful synthesis. Three hundreds of years later the resulting structure - Newtonian mechanics - proceeds to be a useful but no less elegant monument to his genius.
