Fact of the Day: Math Fish

While Isaac Newton's book Principa is considered one of his greatest achievements, it almost never saw the light of day. The scientific group The Royal Society had almost broken their promise to help Isaac Netwon get Principa out to the world to be read. All because of a book called "History of Fish" did very poorly and they didn't have much resources to make another book.
