The Building Block of Life

James Watson and Francis Crick were not the men the world would have bet on to figure out the secrets of life, but discover it they did. DNA, Deoxyribonucleic acid, the “Double Helix,” is the building block for all life on this earth and probably any life we find off of it. So how did two scientists not bent on answering the big questions about the origin of all existence come across this information?

Well, if you’ve been reading our Ego Friendly posts for long enough, you know that the answer is certainly not, as some want to make it out to be, luck. Crick and Watson, like all good scientists kept their eyes open, asked questions and made sure that nothing that could be potentially informative was allowed to slip by. Don’t believe us? Watch the video below. After you watch it, maybe you’ll have a better understanding of how true discovery is always the result of hard work.
