Isaac Newton

We all know that Isaac Newton is... dead. But we need him to come back from the dead, so for now we're just going to say that he is missing. I need him to do my extremely hard math and science homework SO LET'S FIND NEWTON! Here is some background information about this "missing" lad. Newton was born Dec. 25, 1642, in Woolsthorpe, England. In 1669, Newton was appointed professor of mathematics at Trinity College. In January 1672, he was elected to the Royal Society, a loose organizations of scientists. After, he presented his discoveries, and developed a rivalry with the scientist Robert Hooke, who criticized Newton's research. Newton's research was put in a three-volume book, the Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica ("Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy"), known as the Principia. This made him super, super famous . The MOST important thing Newton discovered is gravity. Gravity, gravity, gravity. The force that keeps this whole solar system together, THE WHOLE UNIVERSE together. He made 3 laws:

1. Every body continues in its state of rest, or of uniform motion in a straight line, unless it is compelled to change that state by forces impressed upon it.

2. The change in motion is proportional to the motive force impressed, and is made in the direction of the straight line in which that force is impressed.

3. To every action there is always opposed an equal reaction.

These are Newton's laws of motion. These helped us in the past, they help us now, and they will probably still be helpful in the future. I mean, come on. We HAVE to find the guy who changed history forever! He discovered gravity for goodness sake! Anyways, he was made president of the Royal Society in 1703, due to Robert Hooke's death, and knighted in 1705. He was never married and had no children. He died on March 20, 1727, and was buried in Westminster Abbey.

Here's a quote: "We build too many walls and not enough bridges." ~Isaac Newton

Now get looking for this $2000 token because the children of the world are suffering with their extremely hard math and science homework! HAPPY HUNTING!
