When he was 12 years old, his mother pulled him out of King’s School in Lincolnshire, where he was introduced to chemistry for the first time. His mother wanted him to become a farmer, but he found it to be boring. Newton entered Cambridge University with the full force of the Scientific Revolution roaring through the scientific community. He was taught the basics of many sciences, but had specific interests in advanced science. Although he did okay in University, most of his success came when he studied privately, exploring the topics as he pleased.

He proved that the force of gravity, combined with the tendency of a planet to remain in a straight-line motion, results in the elliptical orbits discovered by Kepler.3.) Newton formulated 3 laws of motion -An object in motion stays in motion unitl acted upon by an outside force. -F=ma -For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction.4.) In 1668, Newton created the reflecting telescope.5.) He published 'Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica'6.)

To me there has never been a higher source of earthly honor or distinction than that connected with advances in science.
