Theory of Gravity
It is claimed Newton’s discovered the theory of gravity after watching an apple fall in the orchard.
Newton’s law of universal gravitation describes the gravitational attraction between bodies with mass, the earth and moon for example.
Sir Issac Newton discovered gravity about 300 years ago
When talking about gravity he stated For every action there is an equal and opposite reaction.

First Law of Motion
This law is often called "the law of inertia".
There is a natural tendency of objects to keep on doing what they're doing.
Unless acted upon by an unbalance force
A body in motion stays in motion, and a body at rest stays at rest.

Second Law of Motion
Heavier objects require more force to move the same distance as lighter objects.
FORCE = MASS times ACCELERATION or more commonly known as f = ma
If you double the force, you double the acceleration, but if you double the mass, you cut the acceleration in half.
Newton's second law talks about changes in momentum so, at this point, we can't separate out how much the mass changed and how much the velocity changed.

Third Law of Motion
For every action there is an equal and opposite re-action.
There is a reaction force that is equal in size, but opposite in direction.
Whenever an object pushes another object it gets pushed back in the opposite direction equally hard.
When you push an object it goes backwords

Also called reflectors.
Most telescopes used today are reflecting telescopes
The Hubble Space Telescope is the largest space reflecting telescope.
The largest reflecting telescope in the world, the Gran Telescopio Canarias, is in Spain.
