Royal Society

There are many royal societies present with many brilliant minds but the Royal Society I want to talk in this blog is the Royal Society of London. The President, Council and Fellows of the Royal Society of London for Improving Natural Knowledge commonly known as the Royal Society.

This society was formed way back in November,1660. The Royal Society has evolved impressively along the time line with many outstanding individual under the fellowship. Some of the famous people in the royal society are Issac Newton, Robert Hooke, Albert Einstein, Edmond Halley, Stephen Hawking. These people are just some of the few which people are familiar with. I can assure there are thousand of others whose work were vital to understanding the nature of the universe. This society represents the work done by the individuals and encapsulates them under one flag of brilliance. 

The core fellows include all the scientists and engineers from the UK and the commonwealth which are selected based on their contribution to their field. Then there are other three types of fellowship. The Royal Fellows include the members of the British Royal Society representing the British Monarchy. Honorary fellows include individuals who are ineligible to be selected as fellows but have "rendered signal service to the cause of science, or whose election would significantly benefit the Society by their great experience in other walks of life". Then we have Foreign members who belong to non-commonwealth nations.

If I have seen further than others, it is by standing upon the shoulders of giants 
-Sir Issac Newton
