It Didn't Start with a Bang

Brett Holverstott

Newton’s Law of Universal gravitation, discovered in 1687, was a powerful tool to describe not only the parabolic arc of cannon fire but the elliptical orbits of the planets. Newton’s treatise was hugely explanatory; nearly all known phenomena in the physics of his day could be understood by his conceptual scaffold of gravity and mechanical laws within a clockwork universe.
