Biography Edit

"You are not Sir Isaac Newton's daughter, so stop playing like you are."
―The Italian master to Carina Smyth[src]

During his lifetime Newton developed the theory of gravity, the laws of motion, a new type of mathematics called calculus, and made breakthroughs in the area of optics such as the reflecting telescope.

Newton's work was studied by a young Cutler Beckett who hoped to become a professor at Cambridge or Oxford.[1] Carina Smyth heard about Newton from her Italian master when she mentioned something scientific from Galileo Galilei's diary. A few years later she saw a statue of Newton at Hanover Hall, along with the statues of Galileo Galilei and Nicolaus Copernicus, realizing that all these men were scientists.[2]
