## Early Life Sir Issac Newton was born on January 4, 1643, in Wollsthorpe England. He was the only son to a successful farmer, who was also named Issac Newton, but had died 3 months before he was born. Newton was a premature baby, tiny and weak. He wasn't expected to live for long. When he was 3 years old his mother, Hannah Ayscough Newton, re-married a wealthy Minister, Barnabas Smith, and left Newton with his Grandmother, to go live with her new husband. That left a great imprint on Newton, that also set in a small sense of insecurity. | ## Fame Sir Isaac Newton was mostly famous for his law of the Gravitational pull, and the way Gravity works. Of course at the time Scientist already knew that Gravity existed, but Newton found a formula that described how much force Gravity actually held. He also created calculus because he couldn't explain the way gravity worked with the mathematics they had then. | ## Adulthood When Newton was born in Woolsthrope, England. He went to Cambridge University, in Cambridge London. Newton returned back to Woolsthrope because the Plague was raging through Europe in 1665, and closed down the University. While he went home, he continued his private study. During the time off of his study, is when the apple fell on his head, and he figured out the way gravity works. |
