Dr. Rosalind Franklin was one of the greatest scientists of the 20th century, one whose expertise with X-rays put her ahead of the pack when it came to solving the mysteries of human DNA. But Dr. Franklin was a woman. A chilly, fiercely independent woman who did not suffer fools gladly. And her colleagues and rivals did not appreciate much about her. When it came time to hand out Nobel Prizes for the discovery of the double helix, Dr. Franklin’s name was nowhere to be found. Photograph 51 is a funny and moving portrait of the life and career of Rosalind Franklin, a woman way ahead of her time. [GENERAL AUDIENCES]
