Have you noticed that today's Doodle is about

**Ada Lovelace**. I think it's one of those rare occasions that Google celebrates the anniversary of a mathematician.

Kind Regards,

Well.. there was at least one more mathematician before Newton and Leibniz who discovered (some) calculus. Archemedes is credited for the method of exhaustion which he used, I guess, for calculating volumes of sphere and other geometrical shapes.

And I think one remarkable fact about Newton which very few seem to be aware of is that Newton was able to prove that the planets go around sun in elliptical orbits
