Though Isaac Newton lived in an age of distinguished scientists, he was the central figure around which late-17th-century astronomy's greatest luminaries revolved. This lively volume traces the life and work of this groundbreaking physicist and astronomer who invented the reflecting telescope, plumbed the nature of light, and explained the law of gravitation. 177 illustrations, 149 in full color.
