Georgia Tech Archives Rare Book Spotlight: Newton’s Principia & Opticks (Online)

Join Georgia Tech Astronomer Jim Sowell and Research Services and Instruction Archivist Alison Reynolds as they explore Sir Isaac Newton’s Principia & Opticks. You’ll get a virtual look at the Georgia Tech Archives copies of Newton’s Principia, which established the modern science of dynamics and serves as the basis for the modern study of physics, and Opticks, which provided our modern understanding of light and color. Participants will discuss intersections between rare books and science and why these works are pivotal to our current understanding of physics and astronomy.
