Isaac Newton’s youth was marked by constant curiosity. As he began a life of research and experiments, he turned this curiosity into major insights about the workings of Earth and the universe. He even developed three laws to explain the motions of objects. This graphic biography moves from Newton’s childhood inventions to the breakthrough theories of his adult life. It also spotlights his time at England’s Royal Mint, where he combated counterfeiting, and his gift of knighthood from Queen Anne.
