Isaac Newton

Series 1 - Episode 3 Isaac Newton



Historian Allan Chapman discusses Isaac Newton's revolutionary theories, which postulated that the universe is governed by a single set of mathematical principles. Newton produced a complex formula to describe the laws of gravity, and by the time of his death in 1727, the groundwork of modern physics had been laid.
