Robert Hooke

Biography

United kingdom philosopher and scientist whose observations through the microscope changed the essential assumptions of science. He was captivated by the internal workings of systems early in his years as a child, and he got aside a clock and produced a functional solid wood look-alike. He became extremely guarded about his function and continued to be obscure after his loss of life. His dad and both of his uncles had been Anglican ministers. He suggested the mathematical method for the effectiveness of gravity before Isaac Newton in fact worked it from paper.
