Nature journal digitises archive
The entire archives of the prestigious science journal Nature, stretching back to the first issue on 4 November 1869, have been made available online.
Previously, only issues going back to 1950 were accessible on the net.
The pre-1950s Nature archives include seminal moments in science history, from the theory of mechanical flight to the discovery of nuclear fission.
Full access to the archives requires a personal subscription, but most of the content of the accompanying history site is free, such as a blog where anyone can vote and comment on their favourite Nature paper.
Will the synthesis of C60, a spherical form of carbon that forms the backbone of many developments in nanotechnology (and a personal favourite of Campbell's) triumph over the discovery of the hole in the ozone layer, or perhaps any of Nature's odder publishing moments?
