Rosalind Franklin Socks
When a trio of male scientists won the Nobel Prize in 1962 for “discovering” the structure of DNA, they owed much of their success to a colleague named Rosalind Franklin. Trained as a chemist and X-ray crystallographer, Franklin directed part of the research team and was especially brilliant when it came to microscopic imaging. Photo 51, an X-ray diffraction image that was taken under her supervision, is considered one of the most significant breakthroughs to an understanding of the double helix structure. Tragically, Rosalind Franklin passed away at an early age and her achievements were not given the recognition they deserved.
