Storyboard Text

  • Sir Isaac Newton Jr. was born on January 1, 1643 in Woolsthorpe, England. His parents were Hannah Ayscough and Isaac Newton. Isaac's father soon died 3 months after his birth leaving him fatherless. Before he was barely 3 years old, he was put in his grandmother's care in order for his mother to remarry a second wealthy family.
  • Why did this apple fall on me?
  • When his mother returned in 1653, Sir Isaac Newton Jr. was taken out from school to fulfill his inheritance of farming. He failed to this calling and returned to King's School to prepare his entrance to Trinity College. On June 1661, Isaac's life took a turning point when he left Woolsthorpe for Cambridge University.
  • Maybe it has something to do with the glass
  • In 1665, Sir Isaac Newton Jr. received his bachelor's degree. He soon returned home since the school closed for 2 years due to the plague. There in the following 18 months, he has made original contributions to science, mathematics, and philosophy.
  • One autumn day, Sir Isaac Newton Jr. was sitting under an apple tree thinking. After some time, a ripe apple fell onto the ground asking Isaac one question,"Why did this apple fall?" Although many people have seen apples fall off trees, Isaac was the only asking why it did that. After doing some research and experiments, he found out that gravity has made the apple fall. Newton's laws of motion soon confirmed the heliocentric theory and also explained the movement of planets
  • Galileo Galilei invented the first telescope in 1609. His purpose was to study the movement of planets. One problem with his telescope was that it made blurry images of what was being viewed. Sir Isaac Newton realized that the glass was the problem. So he developed a new kind of telescope consisting of metal mirrors instead of glass. Light from the object being viewed will be collected by the primary mirror then reflects to a smaller "flat" mirror which will form an image.
  • On March 31, 1727, Sir Isaac Newton Jr. died from natural causes. He became as one of the most famous men in England. He was never married nor had any kids. He was buried in Westminster, Abbey London.
