Isaac Newton's early education paved the way for experiments that would forever change the way we look at the world. A key thinker during the Age of Reason, Newton pushed past the borders of knowledge, defying the Black Plague and the Great Fire of London, to explore gravity, calculus, and outer space. From a simple childhood marked by a serious mind, Newton became a true pioneer in science, mathematics and philosophy.
