The hallways of math and science history are overflowing with the achievements of white men, from Sir Isaac Newton to Steve Jobs; their faces are printed into elementary school textbooks everywhere, and their achievements have been indelibly drilled into our minds, with countless awards and institutions named after… Read more...
Let me tell you a little something about gravity: It’s weird. A hundred or so years ago, Albert Einstein realized Isaac Newton’s laws didn’t work so well for really extreme situations, ones Newton never would have encountered on 17th century Earth. So Einstein said, alright, let’s come up with a new theory that looks… Read more...

Robbie Thompson talks with CBR about Isaac Newton, Doctor Doom and what lies ahead for Doctor Strange and the Sorcerers Supreme. The post Thompson Talks Betrayal and Doom in Doctor Strange and the Sorcerers Supreme appeared first on CBR.com.
Or perhaps Chomsky’s endorsement of Isaac Newton’s mysterianism. We tend to think of Newton as bringing physics to a triumphant state of perfection, one that lasted until Einstein, and with qualifications, still stands. Chomsky says that in fact Newton shattered the ambitions of mechanical science, which have never recovered; and in doing so he placed […]
Physicist. Mathematician. Inventor. Mechanic. Author. Philosopher. Genius.
When dealing with Engineering Mathematics, we are constantly exposed to Limits, Continuity and Differentiability. These concepts in calculus, first proposed separately by Isaac Newton and Gottfried Leibniz, have permeated every walk of life – from space sciences to sewage management. Show More Summary
Scientists will connect two of the most important scientific theories of all time - the law of universal gravitation and the theory of evolution - by unravelling the genetic code of the apple which inspired Isaac Newton's greatest discovery 350 years ago this year.
The first edition of Sir Isaac Newton's Principia Mathematica was sold for $US3.7 million ($5 million) at Christie earlier this week, becoming the most expensive printed science book ever sold at auction --. Albert Einstein described Newton's seminal 1687 work as "perhaps the greatest intellectual stride that it has ever been granted to any man to make". More »

(Rice University) Computer scientists from Rice University, Argonne National Laboratory and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have used one of Isaac Newton's numerical methods to demonstrate how 'inexact computing' can dramatically improve the quality of simulations run on supercomputers.
