Foreword: "On a quiet, moonlit night in a garden at Woolsthorpe, England, a young man was roused from solitary musings by the sound of an apple's fall. How peculiar, he thought —the apple falls, yet the moon does not. Two years later, after laborious study and experiment, Isaac Newton formulated the law of universal gravitation—as revolutionary a development in the history of scientific thought as the atomic bomb was in the long history of war. Since Newton, astronomy's progress has been amazing."
