Trailblazers recounts 350 years of scientific progress with archive material from the Royal Society .

The papers, taken from past issues of the oldest scientific journal in the English-speaking world, Philosophical Transactions, also include documents from 1776 on how Captain James Cook saved his sailors from scurvy with pickled cabbage, lemons and malt - long before ideas about nutrition developed. They also include Stephen Hawking's early writing on black holes and Isaac Newton's 1672 landmark work on the nature of light and colour and 1940 papers on the discovery of penicillin.
