Isaac newton (january 4, 1643 to march 31, 1727) was a physicist and mathematician who developed the principles of modern physics, including the laws of motion, and is credited as one of the great minds of the 17th century scientific revolution. Born in 1643 in woolsthorpe, england, sir isaac newton began developing his influential theories on light, calculus and celestial mechanics while on break from cambridge university years of research culminated with the 1687 publication of “principia,” a landmark work that established the universal laws of motion and gravity.
Isaac newton was born on 4 january 1643, in woolsthorpe manor, england, to hannah ayscough and isaac newton his father died three months prior to his birth hannah remarried reverend barnabus smith, leaving the three-year old newton under the care of his maternal grandmother, margery ayscough. The reflecting telescope invented by sir isaac newton in 1671 by using a curved mirror to reflect and focus the light, the length of the telescope was dramatically reduced newton didn't attempt to publish some of his early discoveries, such as his work on the shape of orbits modesty and controversy made him hesitant to share his theories.
Isaac newton was born on january 4, 1643 in the tiny village of woolsthorpe-by-colsterworth, lincolnshire, england his father, whose name was also isaac newton, was a farmer who died before isaac junior was born.
Newton, sir isaac (1642-1727), english natural philosopher, generally regarded as the most original and influential theorist in the history of sciencein addition to his invention of the infinitesimal calculus and a new theory of light and color, newton transformed the structure of physical science with his three laws of motion and the law of universal gravitation. Sir isaac newton, (born december 25, 1642 [january 4, 1643, new style], woolsthorpe, lincolnshire, england—died march 20 [march 31], 1727, london), english physicist and mathematician, who was the culminating figure of the scientific revolution of the 17th century.

The reflecting telescope invented by sir isaac newton in 1671 by using a curved mirror to reflect and focus the light, the length of the telescope was dramatically reduced. Isaac newton was an english scientist and mathematician he made major contributions in mathematics and physics (the study of the relationship between matter and energy) and advanced the work of previous scientists on the laws of motion, including the law of gravity.
