He was a great scientist who discovered the gravitational pull and discovered three laws of motion.
Isaac Newton was an English Physicist, Mathematician, Astronomer, Natural Philosopher, Alchemist and Theologian. He was born in 1642/3 (see related question for details) in Lincolnshire, UK. He studied at Trinity College, Cambridge.

He is one of the most influential scientists of all time and is most famous for describing the laws of gravity, possibly after observing an apple falling from a tree. In addition he described the three laws of motion which dominated the scientific view of the physical universe for the next three centuries. Newton showed that the motions of objects on Earth and of celestial bodies are governed by the same set of natural law. In the field of mathematics Newton shares the credit for the development of the differential and integral calculus.
The greatest scientist of all time.

He invented calculus, described refraction, explained gravity and described forces and motion. He basically invented classical physics, and he did it casually, as he couldn't even be bothered with science most of the time.
a scientist who discovered gravity and the three motion laws.
Issac newton was the man to discover gravity, invent the reflecting telescope, define the laws of motion and the laws of refraction, determined the nature of orbits,and many other things.
Sir Isaac Newton is dead. Who was Newton? He was a scientist who lived in the 1600's - 1700's. He did experimental research in Physics (called Newtonian mechanics for years because he developed much of it) and in Mathematics. He is mostly remembered for his theory of gravity, which many misunderstand. He 'invented' calculus. He worked with light. He invented the first reflecting telescope.
Sir Isaac Newton was one of the greatest scientist and mathematicians that ever lived. He was born in England on December 25, 1643. He was born the same year that Galileo died. He lived for 85 years. Isaac Newton was raised by his grandmother. He attented Free Grammar School and then went to Trinity College Cambridge. Newton worked his way through college. While at college he became intrested in math, physics, and atromony. Newton received both a bachelors and masters degree. While Newton was in college he was writing his ideas in a journal. Newton has new ideas about motion, which he called his three laws of motion. He also has ideas about gravity, the diffraction of light, and forces. Newton's ideas were so good that Queen Anne knighted him in 1705. HIs accomplishments laid the foundations for modern science and revolutionized the world. Sir Isaac Newton died in 1727. Isaac Newton was a scientist from the 17th century, best know for the official "discovery" of gravity.
