Throwback Thursday: ‘Science Madness’ has 107 20th Century Volumes on Organic, Inorganic & Theoretical Chemistry, the Elements, Fermentations, and More!
Originally scanned for the Digital Library of India, some of the texts and PDFs on Science Madness have been archived there since 2003 – these days the archive currently stands at “50426 pages of reading and reference material in 107 volumes” – Impressive!
Shorter articles from the old Sciencemadness library remain available. Thanks go to BromicAcid for providing hosting for these old books during our time of lean bandwidth. Thanks also go to S.C. Wack for providing many of the books found here.
Most of these books are provided as PDF with JBIG2 compression. You will need Acrobat Reader 5.0 or above (or its equivalent) to view these files. A small number of books provided below are in DjVu format. To read them, you will need the the djview viewer provided by DjVuLibre or related projects.
We are angry, frustrated, and in pain because of the violence and murder of Black people by the police because of racism. We are in the fight AGAINST RACISM. George Floyd was murdered, his life stolen. The Adafruit teams have specific actions we’ve done, are doing, and will do together as a company and culture. We are asking the Adafruit community to get involved and share what you are doing. The Adafruit teams will not settle for a hash tag, a Tweet, or an icon change. We will work on real change, and that requires real action and real work together. That is what we will do each day, each month, each year – we will hold ourselves accountable and publish our collective efforts, partnerships, activism, donations, openly and publicly. Our blog and social media platforms will be utilized in actionable ways. Join us and the anti-racist efforts working to end police brutality, reform the criminal justice system, and dismantle the many other forms of systemic racism at work in this country, read more @ adafruit.com/blacklivesmatter
