A birthday to celebrate

On December 25th a great man was born. A  man whose revolutionary ideas and their applications showed a new truth that, almost overnight, took the world by storm, making us question deeply-held assumptions and answering questions that have bothered thinkers for ages.

It's only fitting that we celebrate the man who formulated classical physics, invented the calculus, and inproved the telescope, among other achievements. Scientists claim to be standing on the shoulders of giants when credited with feats of ingenuity. This man is one of those giants.

Happy birthday, Sir Isaac Newton.
