Storyboard Text

  • Robert Hooke, an English scientist, is examining bits of cork under a microscope. What he finds will change the world of science forever.
  • There appears to be microscopic rooms inside this magnified cork...what could this mean? Perhaps Robert Brown will know!
  • Robert, I was looking at pieces of cork under a microscope, and I discovered small "rooms" inside it. I do believe I will call them cells, because they remind me much of a prison block. What do you think?
  • A splendid idea! I have run a few experiments on these cells, and decided that eukaryotic cells must have a central core containing something. That something is the genetic material (DNA) of the cell!
  • Wonderful! I'll go tell my dear friend Rudolph about our discoveries.
  • Rudolph, I was looking through my microscope earlier and discovered small "cells" inside a cork! Robert has also found that there is a nucleus inside a cell, but only ones that are eukaryotic.
  • Wow! Wait a minute! How did those cells get there? They couldn't have just "appeared" out of nowhere. The meat and fly experiment proves that that is impossible...
  • Later that day, Rudolph and his colleagues, Schwann and Schleiden, are running experiments on the cell.
  • Every plant is made of cells...
  • Great!
  • ...and that all animals are made of cells!
  • We have concluded that: Cells only come from preexisting cells
