The event is inspired by Newton’s pioneering thinking which laid the groundwork for our current understanding of the solar system. In his famous work, Philosophiæ Naturalis Principia Mathematica published in 1687, he formulated the laws of motion and universal gravitation that dominated scientists' view of the physical universe for the next three hundred years.
