Scientist Rosalind Franklin made the first clear X-ray images of DNA’s structure. Her work was described as the most beautiful X-ray photographs ever taken. Franklin’s ‘Photo 51’ informed Crick and Watson of DNA’s double helix structure for which they were awarded a Nobel Prize. Franklin died of ovarian cancer in 1958, aged 37, her contribution to DNA’s discovery story unacknowledged.
Starchild Skull: found in Mexico ~1930 & claimed to either be the skull of an alien infant or an alien-human hybrid. The lower skull was child-like & the upper cranium was huge. It was claimed to be 900 yrs old and confirmed as an alien skull. Independent DNA testing revealed it to be Native American, belonging to a child who probably had hydrocephalus, or ‘water-in-the-brain’, a congenital disorder where there is too much fluid in the skull. Sufferers can develop abnormally large craniums.
