This clip has reenactments of Sir Isaac Newton, a 16th (sixteenth) century scientist, who discovered the universal law of gravity. It begins with Edmond Halley, a fellow scientist and colleague of Newton, reading from the book Newton published and talking via direct address to the camera, the importance of the work. Cuts to a large metal disk used to measure orbits. A CU of the device. A CU of an orrery, a mechanical devise that illustrates the relative positions and motions of the planets in the solar system. A CU of a telescope. A shot of Newton walking on a path in the country side and stopping to throw rocks in a pond and observe the effects.
