The Royal Society is 350 years old in 2010. To mark the event, the Royal Society archives have been made freely available online.
ALL of them.
350 years worth.
The archives contain more than 66,000 articles, including the first ever article published in the world's first science journal Philosophical Transactions.
Here's a nerdy quiz question for you to ask, "What was the subject of the first paper in the first scientific journal?" Answer - Optick Glaffes.
The archive will remain free to access until 30 November 2010. So go in now and download some original articles from people such as Mr Issac Newton (a promising young mathematiks Profeffor)
and a Mr Charles Darwin (recently back from an around-the-world cruise).
