The story goes that Sir Isaac Newton cracked the mystery of gravity when he saw an apple fall from a tree and wondered why it fell perpendicular to the ground rather than up or sideways.
While this realisation was important, alone it wasn’t enough. Looking beyond the boundaries of earth, Newton looked up to the moon and realised that for it to hang in the sky, the same forces that pull an apple to the ground, must be the same that keep the moon as a projectile in its gravitational orbit around our planet.
He connected the two and stretched his thinking beyond his initial perspective, beyond the planetary boundaries and up to the moon, to see the bigger picture. So, it seems Newton was a NXthinker too.
