In , the year Galileo died, Isaac Newton was born in Woolsthorpe, Lincolnshire,. England on Christmas Day. His father had died three months earlier, and. Sir Isaac Newton is generally regarded as the most original and influential theorist in the history of science. His passion was to unite knowledge and belief. He was the greatest scientist of his day, perhaps of all time. But while Isaac Newton was busy discovering the universal law of gravitation, he was also searching.
One of the minor facets has been colored to make the chirality more obvious. Image from Wikimedia Commons, available at http: An object is said to be chiral if it cannot be superimposed on its mirror image. Wittgenstein pointed out that a right-hand glove could be worn over a left hand if the three-dimensional glove could be turned around in a fourth spatial dimension. Engraving by William Stukeley, dated , of the Church of St. John the Baptist, Colsterworth, where Isaac Newton was baptized.
The monument on the right is an imaginary decoration. In chemistry The young Louis Pasteur, who had just completed his doctorate in chemistry and physics, was faced with an intriguing puzzle. In , Pasteur discovered that the artificially synthesized acid could form two distinct forms of crystal, shown in Fig. A decade afterwards, his experiments on tartrate fermentation led Pasteur to conclude that chirality is an essential factor in molecular recognition within biological systems.
Writing a century later, the great crystallographer and molecular biologist J. In particle physics In , theoretical physicists T. Lee and C. Yang proposed that the weak nuclear interaction, unlike the other forces of nature, could distinguish between mirror images. Soon afterwards, C. Elementary particles that have mass such as the electron are mixtures of the two chiralities.
The Standard Model SM of high energy physics is therefore formulated in terms of chiral quantum fields. The amount of CP violation in the SM is, however, far too small to explain why the Universe contains as much matter as it does, but no antimatter.
How CP violation in the early Universe can have been large enough to account for the matter content that we see today is one of the great unsolved problems of both cosmology and particle physics.
Note the small heraldic decoration on the side of the table. Copyright of the National Portrait Gallery, London, used here with permission. Stukeley, a noted antiquarian and a personal friend of Sir Isaac, included a copy of that engraving in his manuscript biography of Newton, dated The use of the heraldic device suggests that this particular painting —closely patterned after an earlier one by Enoch Seeman— was made for the Newton family.
The dexter chirality is used as well in the arms carved by John Woodward in —56 above the stalls in the chapel of Trinity College. It is equally uncertain what meaning, if any, Newton attached to the chirality of his heraldic device.
Isaac Newton, from a copy of a bust by Roubillac owned by the Turnor family. The picture is taken from Ref. The image can be made upright by reflection a desirable feature when observing objects on land , at the cost of reversing left and right and therefore the chirality.
Each mirror reverses chirality, but the net effect is that the image is rotated while chirality is preserved. In his later years, Newton had further occasion to consider the incongruence of mirror images when he sought to estimate the date for the expedition of the Argonauts from what he took to be a contemporaneous description of the positions of the equinoxes and solstices with respect to the constellations. In the course of that work, Newton had to correct for inconsistencies in the chiralities of constellations as drawn in stellar atlases.
A similar confusion accounts for the north-south reversal of all constellations except Orion on the zodiac painted by Paul Helleu on the vaulted ceiling of Grand Central Terminal, in New York City.
Never at rest. A biography of Isaac Newton
I have been unable to confirm that he personally chose, or even used, the sinister chirality of Fig. The sinister chirality was associated with the Newtons of Cambridge, whom Isaac Newton must have known but to whom he was unrelated. The genteel Turnor family of Stoke Rochford was assiduous in cultivating the memory of their illustrious country- man. Was Newton aware that in the English heraldry of his day a bend sinister often marked the arms of a bastard child?
When his mother remarried, the three-year-old Newton was left in the care of his maternal grandparents. Treated almost as an orphan, Newton had a lonely and unhappy childhood, in which some biographers have seen a source of his adult neuroses. Like everyone else, he had a genealogy, both familial and intellectual. He was a creature of his own time and place.
Yet he was also a prime mover in what may be the grandest cultural shift in history. He left no biological descendants, but he is an ancestor to all modern humankind. Neither the standards of his day nor those of ours are quite suited to giving his full measure. And neither the hero-worship of his first biographers nor the various revisionisms of subsequent scholars have produced a coherent and compelling picture of how such a man was possible.
On his deathbed, Newton refused the last rites of the Church of England. He died on the morning of 20 March Jed Buchwald and Mordechai Feingold pointed me to Refs. I, Paris: Gauthier-Villars, , p.
