User Reviews

A collaboration from wonder to exploration that is science.
15 September 2003 | by (N/A) – See all my reviews

This documentary I rented over my summer vacation to see if it had anything to do with Newton. To my surprise, it was a particularly interesting sketch of 7 seperate lives telling of their 7 seperate paths from the everyday blah growing up to eventually pursue that powerful marker of humanity's progress known as science. The epitaph left by Newton's name made for the scintillating affect in the calenture of the title's words. Screaming that which is exclusive to the personal reflections one makes on scientific paths when curiousity becomes excited by the pumping of scientific blood nurtured by one's scientific embraces. It was only a year ago that I read the latest book by theoretical physicist, Michio Kaku so I had some knowledge of at least one of these individuals going into the documentary. Quantum physics is a personal curiosity and I am hoping that it succeeds in one day claiming experimentally what it is bounded for at the theoretical domains.
