Submission + - Royal Society releases historic science papers (bbc.co.uk)

krou writes: The Royal Society has released a number of historic science papers and made them available online via its Trailblazing website to celebrate its 350th anniversary. Among the papers are Benjamin Franklin's notes on his kite-flying experiment, a paper on black holes co-written by Professor Stephen Hawking, manuscripts from Sir Isaac Newton showing "that white light is a mixture of other colours", and a few other interesting details such as "a gruesome account of a 17th Century blood transfusion".
