Isaac newton worked for most of his career at the university of cambridge although he did some of his most important work in a small farm lab at his home, woolsthorpe manor wh en cambridge. Robert hooke was his life long enemy his only known friend is edmund halley who calculated the orbit of famous halley's comet known after him and issac newton never had a relationship with women he was a virgin in his entire life. Isaac spent the first half of his life at cambridge and the second half as the curator of the mint he put a great deal of counterfeiters to death during his time at the mint he spent the end of his life living with his niece.

Did newton answer halley's question one of the most famous and consequential meetings in the history of science took place in the summer of 1684 when the young astronomer edmund halley paid a visit to isaac newton, during which halley asked newton what path a planet would follow if it were attracted toward the sun by a force proportional to the reciprocal of the squared distance the idea. Next time, when edmund halley asked him the same question, newton was able to show him a proof it is still discussed whether newton's proof was really a proof of what halley asked (that the inverse square law implies elliptic orbits), or he proved only the converse statement: that the motion on ellipses implies the inverse square law. He visited isaac newton and urged him to publish his principia mathematica, which discussed the same issues of planetary orbits in 1691, halley applied for the savilian chair of astronomy at oxford, but flamsteed blocked the appointment.
Edmond halley is famous for his comet - or more specifically for showing that the comet returned by calculating its orbit we also know of his relationship with isaac newton, and halley's crucial role in the publishing of newton's principia from westfall's major biography of netwon. Significant events in the life of isaac newton 1642: edmund halley's visit leads to writing of the often overshadowed by his famous older brother, charles. Edmond (sometimes edmund) halley was born on 8 november 1656 on the eastern edge of london while at oxford university, halley was introduced to john flamsteed, the astronomer royal influenced by. Edmond halley then visit isaac newton and asked if he could provide answers about the relationship agitation halley elliptical orbit planets rubbish laws quadrant without thinking it involves long-newton can and can prove it.
His work on gravity was released after the astronomer edmund halley visited him with a question about the motion of planets that was confounding astronomers, and found to his shock that newton had worked out the answer four years earlier and simply kept it to himself. And if it wasn't for his astronomer-friend, edmund halley's encouragement, he probably wouldn't have published his most important work, the principia newton avoided the company of others. His (and the world's) greatest scientific work, the principia, was published only after his friend, edmund halley, accidentally learned of the existence of part i which isaac newton had written 10 years earlier and put in a drawer halley convinced him to finish parts ii and iii and allow halley to publish the work.
October - newton's father dies six months after his marriage and nearly three months before the birth of his son isaac the father has been described as a 'wild, extravagant, and weak man' december 25 - isaac newton (1642-1727) is born at woolsthorpe prematurely and posthumously. In august 1864, he went to cambridge to meet and discuss his study on kepler's planetary motion law with sir isaac newton the latter convinced halley to write a book entitled prinicipia mathematica philosophae naturalis in 1687. Edmund halley november 8, 1656 - january 14, 1742 the english astronomer edmund halley studied the orbital movements of the moon and of comets and discovered the proper motion of the fixed stars.
Sir isaac newton, (born december 25, 1642 [january 4, 1643, new style], woolsthorpe, lincolnshire, england—died march 20 [march 31], 1727, london), english physicist and mathematician, who was the culminating figure of the scientific revolution of the 17th century. Halley coaxed the hesitant newton to write his great work, mathematical principles of natural philosophy halley edited and supervised the publication, and actually financed its printing even though newton was wealthier and easily could have afforded the printing costs. He aided in observationally proving isaac newton's laws of motion, and funded the publication of newton's influential philosophiæ naturalis principia mathematica from his september 1682 observations, he used the laws of motion to compute the periodicity of halley's comet in his 1705 synopsis of the astronomy of comets.
