After college, Isaac Newton returned home for two years to the family estate. As it goes Issac Newton watched an apple fall. Well in 1666, it become the only reason he was inspired to find out more about the force of gravity. However, he decided to go back to Cambridge in 1677 to become a professor in Mathematics.
