So I wanted to share with you that on this day, in 1953, DNA was discovered. From my understanding, scientists knew it existed, but James Watson and Francis Crick identified it as the means of carrying genetic material in living organisms (or ones that reproduce). In my research, I came across this video from TED (Technology, Entertainment and Design). Filmed in February of 2005, James Watson tells the story of how he and Crick discovered the structure of DNA. It's about 20 minutes long, but worth your time. He's very funny and I thought the whole talk was extraordinary.
