Francis Crick R.I.P.
Starbuck [15:55] Comments: 0 []
(continuing straight after my previous posting), someone who certainly did not lose sight of humanity was Francis Crick, one of the most important scientists to have lived, who died on Wednesday.

Together with his colleague James Watson, he most famously resolved the three-dimensional structure and function of deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA), the very essence of life. However, there was a lot more to his scientific career than just the right-handed double helix.

In another dimension, brilliant people such as Crick would be worshipped as Gods.
That would be wrong. Crick believed in the human, in the organism, in the genetic code. Its everything we are, and everything we could be.
