SIR Isaac Newton changed our understanding of the Universe with his gravity theory and you can now read his notebook online.
The precious text is just one of many historic treasures that have been added to a free online gallery.
It's part of a project by big academic institutions including Cambridge University Library and the British Library.
Thanks to them you can now view high-resolution images of amazing historic texts on Google's Arts and Culture site.
You'll also be able to view a 4000-year-old clay tablet.
It's one of the oldest written artefacts in existence and shows an ancient script called cuneiform.
The virtual library lets users zoom in on objects so they can be viewed in great detail.
This means you could actually get a better look than if you went to see the treasures in a museum.
You just need to go to the Treasures of Cambridge University Library section on the Google site and start scrolling.
Cambridge University Library is one of the oldest university libraries in the world.
It claims to have a copy of almost every book written in the UK and Ireland since 1710.
There are plans to make more of its collection avaliable online.
The Google Arts and Culture explains: "Google Arts & Culture is a non-profit initiative.
"We work with cultural institutions and artists around the world.
"Together, our mission is to preserve and bring the world’s art and culture online so it’s accessible to anyone, anywhere."
