He was sickly, he stuttered, he was tremendously awkward in social situations, and he spent his weekends in a bizarre quest to turn iron into gold — yet almost 300 years after his death, Newton remains one of the most influential thinkers in history.

  • The Three Laws of Motion: First published when Newton was 43, the three laws remain the cornerstone of modern physics.
  • The Modern Coin: You know those ridges on the edge of a U.S. quarter? Those are milled edges, a feature introduced by Newton on English coins to prevent clipping.
