Sir Isaac Newton invented calculus and explained optics. His most significant work involved forces and the development of a universal law of gravity. It is commonly thought that Newton invented the first reflector telescope but it isn't true. Credit for making the first reflector goes to and Italian Monk, Physicist, and Astronomer named Niccolo Zucchi. He published a book on Optics in the 's and it is this book that inspired Sir Isaac Newton to .

Years. Newton's first law of motion states that a body remains at rest or continues in uniform motion in a straight line unless acted upon by a force.

Newton's second law of motion states that the net.
