From the Paper:

"Isaac Newton is considered one of the most ingenious minds of the twentieth century. He is most remembered for his contributions to the mathematic and scientific arenas, where his work was most influential. Newton was primarily a physicist but he was also a mathematician, an astronomer, a philosopher, and a theologian. His greatest achievement is his laws of motion, a theory that changed physics forever. While looking at Newton's achievements, it is easy to fall into the trap of reading the words on the paper. What we should never forget is how he revolutionized modern science with his laws and theories. He was a real maverick. His studious background paved the way to a greater understanding of nature and her mysteries."
