Talk: Introducing Sir Isaac Newton with Mark Eustace

Ref: C2347424

Who was Isaac Newton? Famous for his laws and just as famous for being hit on the head by an apple but looking at these things alone only scratches the surface of this very deep and complicated man. Newton had a number of jobs and a few enemies too. If you would like to learn more about him, join me as I describe some of the things he is less well known for. Of course a talk about Newton without mentioning his laws would be wrong so we’ll look at these too but don’t worry; we’ll avoid using maths and we won’t get technical about his work!
