Fact of the Day: Newton Family

Isaac Newton's father passed away before he was born, and his mother later re-married. Newton loathed his step-father, and it caused some strife between him and his mother.

Wonder why he didn't get on with his step-father. Isaac was a brilliant man.

Blended families do have a way of clashing at times. Too bad he never met his father.
