Visiting Isaac Newton’s birthplace

Maths & Physics News

On 26 May our maths and physics students and staff visited Woolsthorpe Manor — the birthplace of Isaac Newton, where he also spent much time in 1665-67 making  most important discoveries in maths and physics, in particular, laying foundations of Calculus, conducting experiments with light. Here still grows the famous apple tree, the falling of apples of which Newton used to illustrate his theory of gravitation. A story of Newton’s life was presented by a National Trust volunteer, followed by a short talk on Newton’s mathematics by Dr Evgeny Khukhro. After Woolsthorpe Manor, the day trip was continued with a visit to Belton House and gardens.
