We know that the Newtonian N-body problem cannot be solved in a normal sense. On the other hand, we can find all possible asymptotic behaviors as time goes to infinity of all possible solutions for all possible values of N. That is, we can describe the evolution of Newton's universe. In doing so, I will introduce some of the history of the problem showing where "chaos" came from, etc.
