It features one apple falling from (google) tree under the influence of gravitational force. This reminiscences the true story of dropping of apple related to Newton’s theory of gravitation.

Isaac Newton was the great scholar of 16th century. He was born on January 4th, 1643 and today is his 366th birthday. In order to respect the great scientist Google has paid unique tribute to him by posting the animated google doodle on its home page.

Newton and His Apple: The True Story

The story said that Newton was inspired when he saw a falling apple while walking around his family’s garden at Woolsthorpe Manor, to formulate his theory of universal gravitation.

I must admit that the google’s attempt to respect the great man, is unique and praise worthy. We also commemorate Newton on his birthday. Happy Birthday Sir!

Funny thing when I was in school, I always hated Sir Newton. Because our school books were always filled with his theories. And his theories gave us lot of homework and projects to do. Which I kind of hated to do. But that was past now and I thank Sir Issac Newton for his valuable contribution in science and for the humanity.
GOD Blesses his soul..

ummm… if he was born in 1643 that would make him a 17th century man, not a 16th century man. duh!

and while the apple story may or may not be true, i’ve read his true genius was in realizing that the force that moves apples is the same as that which governs the moon, sun and stars. that is a conceptual leap!

i’ve also read that someone else published grav math before newton but never got credit. anyone know if this is true?
