Two scientists, both alike in dignity, In fair London, where we lay our scene.. The birth of the scientific movement in the United Kingdom was a drama comparable to the one written by The Bard.
Our two scientists are Robert Hooke and Isaac Newton. Both brilliant and yet very different. Where Newton could see the universe through maths and formulas, Hooke understood its practical details.
Their rivalry could be turned into a 10-episode epic feud series, but we haven't got that kind of money. So instead, here's a short intro into the life of Hooke focusing on one of his creations, a sophisticated instrument right in the heart of London.
