Student genius

In 1665, following a new outbreak of plague, universities were closed and the student sent home. Young Isaac Newton of Cambridge University used his long holiday to work out the ideas which were buzzing round his head. First, he uncovered the secrets of light and color. He passed a beam of sunlight through an angled glass ?prism?. This split the white light into a rainbow band of colors. When he passed the rainbow through a second prism, it was mixed back into the white light again. Next, Newton watched the way an apple falls to the ground. He realized that objects were pulled towards the Earth by a force he named gravity.
