Until now, art historians dismissed some doodles in Da Vinci’s notebooks as “irrelevant.”

But a new study from Ian Hutchings, a professor at the University of Cambridge, shows that one page of these scribbles from 1493 actually contained something groundbreaking: the first written records demonstrating the laws of friction.

Although it has been common knowledge that Da Vinci conducted the first systematic study of friction (which underpins the modern science of tribology, or the study of friction, lubrication, and wear), we didn’t know how and when he came up with these ideas.
