Sir isaac newton
todo lo que inventó antes de cumplir 30 años. ✅el cálculo
✅leyes del movimiento
✅ley de la gravitación universal
✅el telescopio newtoniano
✅principios de la espectroscopía y óptica.
aún siendo huérfano de padre antes de nacer, huérfano de madre en plena adolescencia, con un padrastro con el que no se la llevaba nada bien, y con la universidad cerrada durante varios años por la peste negra en europa.

newton formulated the laws of motion and universal gravitation that formed the dominant scientific viewpoint until it was superseded by the theory of relativity. newton used his mathematical description of gravity to prove kepler's laws of planetary motion, account for tides, the trajectories of comets, the precession of the equinoxes and other phenomena, eradicating doubt about the solar system's heliocentricity. he demonstrated that the motion of objects on earth and celestial bodies could be accounted for by the same principles. newton's inference that the earth is an oblate spheroid was later confirmed by the geodetic measurements of maupertuis, la condamine, and others, convincing most european scientists of the superiority of newtonian mechanics over earlier systems.
newton built the first practical reflecting telescope and developed a sophisticated theory of colour based on the observation that a prism separates white light into the colours of the visible spectrum. his work on light was collected in his highly influential book opticks, published in 1704. he also formulated an empirical law of cooling, made the first theoretical calculation of the speed of sound, and introduced the notion of a newtonian fluid. in addition to his work on calculus, as a mathematician newton contributed to the study of power series, generalised the binomial theorem to non-integer exponents, developed a method for approximating the roots of a function, and classified most of the cubic plane curves. follow: @sciencezip
