*If I have seen further, it is by standing on the shoulders of giants*

Yes, Sir Newton this time!

**Sir Isaac Newton**, *(4 Jan 1643 - 31 March 1737)* was an English Physicist and Mathematician, and arguably the greatest scientist who has ever lived. He is my favorite scientist and role model!

Why is Newton so famous?

- He found the Universal Law of Gravitation.
- He created a whole new branch of mathematics, just to solve a physics problem! (The path of heavenly bodies under the influence of gravity)
- He revolutionized mathematics.
- He was the founder of one of the Brilliant's Physics topics,
*Classical Mechanics*.

What are some cool facts of about Newton?

- He was unsocial and an introvert.
- This great problem solver couldn't once understand trigonometry, which led his interest to Euclid's Elements.
- He created Calculus at the rate people study it!
- He possessed extraordinary mathematical abilities right from his childhood.
- He was and remains the youngest Lucasian Professor of Mathematics at the University of Cambridge.
- He was one of the greatest enemies of Robert Hooke, who's even my personal enemy.

And interestingly, he believed in God, but rejected the concept of Trinity.

That was all about Newton. Hope you people enjoy, thanks a lot!
