jan 1, 1665 - Robert Hooke

Description:

Hooke was a natural philosopher from England. He was born in July 1635 and died in March 1703. Hooke was fascinated by all areas and aspects of science and dabbled in many different areas including chemistry, physics and biology. He is known for coining the term ‘cells’. When he looked through a microscope at a piece of cork he thought the little pieces that formed the structure reminded him of cells or small rooms, and named them cells. He was a rather under appreciated scientist of his time, and spent most of his life in conflict with Sir Isaac Newton. Hooke claimed that Newton stolen his work to make his own discoveries which started the rivalry
