When Newton was not yet twenty-five years old, he formulated calculus, hit upon the idea of gravity, and discovered that white light was made up of all the colors of the spectrum. By 1678, Newton designed a telescope to study the movement of the planets and published Principia , a milestone in the history of science, which set forth his famous laws... more...

Es darf als gesichert gelten, dass Einstein bereits 1895-1896, whrend er sich an der Aargauischen Kantonsschule auf die Maturittsprfung vorbereitete, erste Ideen zur Relativittstheorie entwickelte. Die Publikation befasst sich eingehend mit der Aarauer Zeit des spter zu Weltruhm gelangten Physikers und bespricht die grundlegenden Ideen seiner Arbeiten... more...
