Sir Isaac Newton's apple tree sample to defy gravity

Sir Isaac Newton's apple tree sample to defy gravity

A pleasing combination of events in this article, as several milestones in human advancement are honoured in a fitting manner. A small surviving part of an incredibly important scientific discovery, carried into space - where the very force it helped Newton to realise does not exert itself - by another Englishman on one of the last Shuttle flights before the fleet is retired. A perfect embodiment of the Theory of Gravity and a delightful way to celebrate the 350th anniversary of the Royal Society, a Britisher in space and one of the last flights of the Shuttle. I'm sure Sir Isaac would approve!
