Death of Isaac Newton



31 March 1727

Sir Isaac Newton (4 January 1643 - 31 March 1727) was an English scientist who significantly contributed to the fields of physics, mathematics, astronomy and natural philosophy. Newton's work describing universal gravitation and the three laws of motion laid ground for most of classical mechanics. Among other things, he developed a theory of color based on the observation that a prism decomposes white light into the many colors of the visible spectrum.
