This Is How Isaac Newton Predicted The End Of The World

Isaac Newton is regarded as nothing more or less than one of the finest scientific minds in human history. His pioneering work in physics, including the three laws of motion and his comprehension of the awesome force of gravity, laid the foundations for the field itself.
