Issac Newton

Later on after being professor he started studying optics, Mathematics, physics, and astronomy. Optics is the study of light and philosophy is the study of the fundamental nature of knowledge, reality, and existence. Fundamental is a primary rule of principle on which something is based. He also made a book called Philosophy Naturalis Principal Mathmatic ( or Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy). He got into the Royal society which is a science club. He didn't tell anyone in the club his ideas except for putting a mirror in the telescope. While in the Royal Society he decided it would be a good idea to make gold out of lead which is illegal. He was supposed to be hanged but kept his gold making a secret. He suffered from lead and mercury poisoning. He asked to be the warden of the mint were all the money was made but later expected a job as a crime fighting manhunter that hunted down counterfeiters and enforced the law. He also worked in the Tower of London and hanged people there. The Tower of London is also nicknamed the Bloody Tower. People were kept in the Tower of London with no plumbing, beds, and a minimum amount of food so more people died there waiting to go on there trial then actually being hanged. Newton also interrogated people and kept records on paper. He didn't like or talk to anybody but was forced to make friends which just happened to be criminals. He burned his Interrogation papers and went back to trying to make gold out of lead and finally figured it out. He held this job until his death in 1727. He was 84 years old when he died and had no love but plenty of money. He was also the master of the mint when he died. His scientific papers were offered to Cambridge but they didn't want them so they were bought by John Maynard. In 1979 some of Newton's hair was analyzed and contained a large amount of lead and mercury.

Newton left the farm 9 months later to go to Trinity College in Cambridge University with a pound of candles, ink, and a portable toilet.Newton was forced to go back to the farm a few times because of the England plague.During the England plague over 1,000 people died in a week because fleas sucked the blood of dead rats then sucked the people's blood. Over the plague days he didn't just hang around, he worked and studied because he earned the school keys and the rank of professor.

Early life


Isaac NewtonGMS17

Born in Lincolnshire, England on January 4, 1643

Newtons father was a farmer but died before he was born and his mother abandoned him when he was 3 years old and left him with his grandmother on a farm. Eventually Newtons mother returned with another husband and 3 more children. After they came back Newton threatened to burn his parents and the family house over there body. When the second husband died Newton went to boarding school. One of the reasons he went to boarding school is because his mother didn't want him. The first puzzle of Newton's life was ether he wanted to be alone or him being left alone. Instead of playing with the other kids, he picked fights and when he wasn't picking fights, he copied from books word for word.For Newton, school ended when he was 16 years old.Newtons mother demanded that he come home immediately but not because she missed him it was to do work on the farm.Newton's mother expected him to watch over sheep, manage workers, and make prices for hay.

Died in London, England on March 31, 1727 and was 84 years old
