Father of Physics

A single scientist has not been given the title “Father of Physics.” “Father of Modern Physics” titles have been bestowed upon Newton, Galileo, and Einstein. Newton was given this title due to his famous law of motion and gravitation, Galileo due to his role in the scientific revolution and contributions to observational astronomy, and Einstein due to his groundbreaking theory of relativity. More fundamentally, Newton’s mathematical approach has become so fundamental to all of physics that he is widely regarded as the clockwork universe’s father: the first, and possibly greatest, physicist. Therefore, it can be said that Issac Newton is the father of Physics.
