He was born prematurely, so he was a really small child. When he was three, his mother Hannah Ayscough remarried and lived with her new husband, the Reverend Barnabus Smith. Newton cared of maternal grandmother, Margery Ayscough. When he was ten years old, his mother who lost her new husband came back to Woolsthorpe-by-Colsterworth with three boys. Newton detested his stepfather, and he abhorred his mother for remarrying.
It was the 17th century, the time of the Scientific Revolution. Many brilliant men contributed to this time, but it was Newton who solidified their thoughts and theories (Margaret, 10). Isaac Newton is one of the most influential people in the world. He not only invented so many new concepts and ideas, but he brought an understanding of the universe that we live in to people across the world. Isaac Newton not only changed the world with the invention of calculus, but also with his theory of light and color, and his invention of physical science and the law of universal gravitation (Margaret, 11).
The Principia concludes that the force that holds the planets in their orbits is in sync with earthbound gravity. This conclusion ended the view dating back to Aristotle, forever. The ultimate success of Newton’s theory of gravity was the identification of the basic forces of nature and their characterization, in laws, which is the primary pursuit of physics. The success of this theory led to a new conception of exact science that declares that every contrast between observation and theory, no matter how small, is telling scientists something important about the world. Once it beca... ... middle of paper ... ...Newton contributed to the Enlightenment period with his Principia, the reflecting telescope and The Three Laws of Motion.
He was the only son of a prosperous farmer whose name was also Isaac Newton. Unfortunately his father passed away about 3 months before he was even born. Newton was a premature baby and was not expected to survive. His mother, Hannah Ayscough, remarried when he was 3 and left him to his grandmother. This action made him very insecure later in life (“Isaac”).
The day Galileo had slipped from our world Sir Isaac Newton had life breathed into him. Sir Isaac Newton was born on December 25, 1642, at Woolsthorpe. Before he was born his father died, so he was brought up with the scent and presence of his mother, Hannah. Despite this at the age of three his mother married someone else and abandoned him in the care of his grandmother, devastating him and rocking his foundation. He received the basic local education, or elementary, until he was twelve, then he proceeded to attend the King's School in Grantham.
Johannes Kepler is a famous mathematician, astronomer, and astrologer of the Scientific Revolution during the seventeenth century. Kepler has made some very important contribution to the fields of astronomy and mathematics. Without him we might not have made some discoveries until much later. He is one of the most important scientists of the Scientific Revolution. Johannes Kepler made some important contributions to astronomy and had some incredible works and accomplishments all due to his early developed love for science.
Born to Bronisława née Boguska and Władysław Skłodowski on November 7 1867 in Warsaw, Kingdom of Poland, Marie Sklodowska Curie was one of five children. Both her parents were teachers and she grew up rather poor so her family tried to invest to recover from previous losses, but the investment turned up weak; with this the family decided to board boys in their home. When she was ten years old her mother died of tuberculosis three years after her sister Zofia had died of typhus caught from a boarder staying in their home. After these events her atheist father forgot her Catholic mother’s ways and Skłodowska Curie became agnostic. But these experiences and obstacles did not prevent Skłodowska Curie from following and looking up to her sister Bronisława, whom she had previously followed to Flying University, and who had also led her to Paris after moving there herself.
