Atlas Obscura Newton’s Apple Tree

Science can be seen by many as a rigid discipline, only dealing with facts and objective truths. While this is true, many people seem to forget the humans behind the science. There are many links between scientists and places related to their discoveries across the globe.

Pictures, equipment, and sometimes a sink shed light on the faces behind some of the world’s greatest discoveries. This apple tree in a Lund botanical garden is related to one of humanity’s greatest discoveries.
