Okay, I am not going to even pretend to know anything about Newton…or science for that matter; I really am a one trick pony. I mean, I understand that he made many important contributions to science – the telescope, for instance – but his discoveries, while amazing and world changing, aren’t really on my radar. (He didn’t invent that, did he?)
However, this is really cool if you’re a science person. Or, potentially, even if you’re not.
Cambridge University, Newton’s alma mater, has digitized Newton’s work and it’s available for public perusal. Considering Newton’s dates (1642-1727), I find this remarkable.
