DNA Double Helix Earrings
Rosalind Franklin was an expert in X-ray crystallography, a technique that uses X-ray beams to analyse the shape of molecules. On May 1, in 1952, she took a photograph of what has been called "among the most beautiful X-ray photographs of any substance ever taken." Photography 51. It shows an image of the X-ray diffractions pattern of DNA. She was the first person ever to provide proof that DNA was formed in a helical structure. Unfortunately this wonderfully talented lady was not able to continue her research as she passed away from ovarian cancer in April 1958 at the tragically young age of just 37. Further, her work was not acknowledged in 1962, when Watson, Crick, and Wilkins were awarded the Nobel Prize for discovering the DNA double helix structure.
