Isaac Newton’s first ever scientific achievement was his Reflecting telescope in 1668 and from there has accomplished many more. Isaac with the help of Gottfried Leibniz had discovered and developed calculus. In 1687 Newton had published Philosophiae Naturalis Principia Mathematica aka Principia which contained his famous Basic Laws of Motion and Law of Gravity. Isaac Newton was also the first scientist to be knighted, which is a great privilege and honor in England.In Newton’s last years he was living with his niece Catherine (Barton) Conduitt and her husband. He had become at the time one of the most well known and had become very famous in Europe.

By March 31st, 1727 Isaac Newton had died in his sleep.Isaac Newton’s death had boosted his fame, having been said to be the greatest mind to have ever lived. His works on Laws of motion and gravity would help set the foundation on which physics would be built on. Also his development of calculus was influential on mathematics.
Isaac Newton, although not always right and having been proven wrong, He says “I do not know what I may appear to the world, but to myself I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the seashore, and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or a prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me.” meaning knowledge is forever growing.
