I'm sure there are. I was downloading some books from LibriVox last night for my hubby and I to listen to on the plane to Europe, and I saw a book on relativity by Einstein and Origin of the Species
by Darwin. If they've got it in public domain books, I'm sure they've got it in more contemporary titles too.
If you are looking for really
hard science, you should check out MIT's OpenCourseWare
. MIT provides a ton of their course information online for free, and several of the instructors record their lectures. I think it would be great fun to pick an interesting class and take it virtually while I knit away.
