Pandemic: What have you done lately? Sir Isaac thrived!

Post by MSI »

From Washington Post: which begins...
  • Isaac Newton was in his early 20s when the Great Plague of London hit. He wasn’t a “Sir” yet, didn’t have that big formal wig. He was just another college student at Trinity College, Cambridge.
    He continued to work on mathematical problems he had begun at Cambridge; the papers he wrote on this became early calculus.
    He acquired a few prisms and experimented with them in his bedroom, even going so far as to bore a hole in his shutters so only a small beam could come through. From this sprung his theories on optics.
And of course that apple tree...and discovery of gravity...So many theories and laws and brilliance!
so....
What have you done lately?
See the full article also a few biographies of Sir Isaac i've read and found great reads.
