What Isaac Newton could teach us about Covid-19
Historians note that famed physicist, Sir Isaac Newton, was forced to work from home in his early 20 ’s when the bubonic plague swept through London in 1665. A college student at the time, Newton said it was the most productive period of his life, calling it the “year of wonder,” in which he discovered the theories of gravity and motion, and even penned his early thoughts on calculus.
