A collection of original notes and drawings that capture the moment a significant scientific breakthrough was made. Many of the images in this collection have been used to illustrate reports and publications produced by the Royal Society.
The items in this collection are held in the Royal Society archives or are associated with the work of our Fellows and grant recipients.
We are grateful to the scientists involved for working with us to present their work here and in other Royal Society publications.
