Copyright 1671: I Like the Sound of That
Thanks to the Royal Society, here's the sort of scientific paper that they just don't make any more: "A Letter of Mr. Isaac Newton, Professor of the Mathematicks at the University of Cambridge, Containing His New Theory About Light and Colors". Along the way, in between making fundamental observations about refraction, rainbows, white light, complementary colors, and human perception, he invents the reflecting telescope that I take out into my yard on clear nights.
Newton was the Real Deal if anyone ever was. Like Bernoulli, you may recognize the lion by his paw.
