Cambridge posts Newton manuscripts online
LONDON (AP) - The University of Cambridge says it is posting almost all of Isaac Newton manuscripts to the Internet.
The university said Monday it is launching its online collection with 4,000 pages worth of the Enlightenment thinker’s most famous work. Other Cambridge manuscripts, including the papers of Charles Darwin, may follow.
This isn’t Newton’s first foray online.
The full text of some 130 of Newton’s writings is freely available through The Newton Project, maintained by the University of Sussex in southern England.
But Cambridge says that facsimile copies of Newton’s works will allow a far larger audience to explore the full texture of his writings _ which include the notes, annotations and arithmetic behind his discoveries.
