Generally recognized as a physicist, he is proudly known for his work in a lot of domain such as mathematics, optics, and motion which are all parts of physics. Born prematurely on Christmas day, he was fatherless and barely three years old when his mom left him as his maternal grandmother’s to get remarried and build a second family: challenging childhood but full of promises. Ten years later his mother Hanna, came back in Woolsthorpe, his natal town after the dead of her second husband. Despite her long absence, Newton was still denied of his mom’s attention, thus a great contribution to his complex character.

This failure led him back to King’s school at Grantham where he prepared his entrance to Trinity College at Cambridge.
