Check out my opening post on the issue: So, You Hit A Paywall?
Hope you enjoy reading it. Cheers!

Alexander Fleming was 47 when he discovered penicillin, Andrew Wiles was 42 when he proved Fermat's theorem and Luc Montagnier was 51 when he discovered HIV with his colleagues. We have put together an infographic on this page showing 80…Continue
