  • Science → Scientific Method → Peer Review
  • Physics → Classical Mechanics → Newton's Law of Universal Gravitation
  • Physics → Gravity → Inverse-square Law

Newton presents his findings on gravity to a group of scientists. Among the attendees are Sir Robert Hooke. During his explanation of the inverse-square law, Newton notices that Hooke appears to be stealing his work, so he abruptly ends his presentation.
