The Sensorium of God Synopsis

In the mid-17th century Edmond Halley, adventurer and astronomer, visits reclusive alchemist and fearsome mathematician, Isaac Newton, in Cambridge. No one understands why the planets move as Kepler so elegantly described almost a century earlier, and Halley asks Newton for help with solving the problem.

 

 

Little does Halley know that this simple question will plunge both their lives into crisis, push Europe headlong towards the Age of the Enlightenment and catapult science into its next decisive clash with religion.
