I is for Isaac Newton

Yes, I'm going by the first letter of his first name rather than by last name.  Either way, I say it's okay for me to do that, and I'm going to do it anyway.

Isaac Newton contributed greatly to scientific understanding.  Neil deGrasse Tyson credits him with being the greatest physicist of all time, so that's a good endorsement as far as I'm concerned.


Here's a brief biography about Isaac Newton with the briefest of overviews of his work.


  1. I'm a fan of Neil deGrasse Tyson and can listen to him all day long, lol! I remember watching a similar interview where Neil is asked this same question and he doesn't hesitate for a second. Isaac Newton truly was an incredible person.

  2. I'm getting exposed to all sorts of whack and wonderful things during this challenge.

  3. Can you imagine sitting down and having a chat with Newton? The only thing I would understand is the type of tea he is drinking

    Inspired by Emily Dickinson today!

  4. Thanks for imbedding that video. It was short and to the point, and just what I needed to inject a little deep thought into my day.

  5. Good Post. Great video. Issac Newton was the man even before age 26. I was still dancing and partying my brains out.(in between work)

  6. You know how much of a fan I am of Tyson L.G! Newton was the greatest Physicist.
