Since it began publishing in 1665, Britain's Royal Society has run works by Newton, Robert Hooke, Michael Faraday, Watson and Crick, and plenty of other scientific giants. For the next 2 months, visitors can troll the society's complete journal archive and download articles for free. Historically important publications stowed here include astronomer Edmund Halley's account of the eponymous comet and a description of Benjamin Franklin's kite-flying experiment. Free access ends in December.
