krou writes “To celebrate its 350th anniversary, the Royal Society has released a number of historic science papers and made them available online via its Trailblazing website. 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.’”
