    Sir Isaac Newton was the first to delve into the subjects of gravity and motion. The knowledge he gained paved the way for him to calculate celestial mechanics, which in turn allowed scientists later to go into orbital mechanics. Due to his profound experiments and calculations, he is credited for laying the foundation of orbital mechanics.

    Johannes Kepler published his three laws governing orbital mechanics in 1609. In 1666, Newton proved Kepler’s laws using calculus. Kepler published his laws with the belief that they applied only to planets that orbited the sun. Upon proving Kepler’s laws, Newton discovered they applied to any satellite in orbit around a celestial body.
