Storyboard Text

  • But from the peak of her success, it came rushing down! But in the result of a personal conflict between her and a fellow colleague Maurice Wilkins her work was shuffled about like this...
  • Hello, i'm a colleuge of Franklin and have some critical evidence for the project you have been trying to uncover! The structure of DNA! So please join me and we can use this to discover it and share our knowledge... without Franklin!
  • Hmmmmm 
  • So he showed James Watson and Francis Cricket the Photograph 51 which was Rosalind's most essential piece of evidence!
  • Meanwhile...
  • Hmmmm RNA???
  • So she left the king's college and returned back to the Birbeck college to move on from DNA and start to look at RNA, viruses and more genetic information.
  • Rosalind didn't know that they had done this and soon after published her discovery of DNA but was made to look as if she had copied Crick and Watson!
  • Just to make things worse... Crick and Watson both received the Nobel prize for their contribution but Franklin was already passed away by the point so her talent was recognised...
  • Unfortunatly after a very successful life, she passed away at the age of 37 on April 16th, 1958 and worked up until then to keep her legacy alive!
  • But the tragic thing was she died from too much exposure to the radiation from the x-ray diffraction! So due to her hard work, she recived Ovarian cancer, which no one deserves! 
  • But the life she lived was unimaginable and definetly made a mark in the science history and will continue to inspire so many!
