ARLINGTON - Isaac Newton (aka R.A. Hill) will tell about his life and discoveries on Fridays in May at the Planetarium at The University of Texas at Arlington.

"Newton" explores how the scientist searched for answers to questions such as what attracted an apple to the earth. It also shows how Newton built on research and discoveries of previous scientists to deduce the answers that led to the universal law of gravity and the science of mechanics.

Guests are encouraged to bring questions for Newton (Hill) to answer.

Pages of Newton's book "System of the World" will be on display, along with a replica of his original telescope design.

Presentations are:

  • Noon Friday, May 8;
  • 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 15;
  • Noon Friday, May 22; and
  • 7:30 p.m. Friday, May 29.

The Planetarium is located at 700 Planetarium Place, Arlington, on the UT Arlington campus.

Tickets are $5 per person. Call the Planetarium at 817-272-1183 to make reservations.
