We all know about Leonardo da Vinci, the polymath who was interested in painting, sculpture, invention, science, music, mathematics, engineering, literature, anatomy, geology and many other areas of science! Incredibly amazing, isn't it?Many of his drawings were ignored by scientists until recently because they were deemed 'irrelevant'. However, a former 'irrelevant' page that has been discovered lately totally shocked the science community. One would think this guy couldn't have possibly got cooler, but he has done it!
1. This page, which was discovered by the University of Cambridge Professor Ian Hutchings, bears the date of the year 1493.
2. It was a known that da Vinci was the first person to conduct a systematic study of friction, however, there is no information about how and when he concluded these laws.
3. The same page also attracted lots of attention in the beginning of the 20th century.
4. And the rest of this page was deemed a part of unimportant drawings by the scientists of 1920s.
5. While today's scientists are working on friction laws, they unknowingly use the drawings that were made by da Vinci for the first time.
6. We actually shouldn't have had to wait until now to conclude that da Vinci was way ahead of his time as a scientist.
