During the 1800’s, there were not a lot of female scientists. Marie Curie became the first woman to receive a nobel prize, and also the first to receive two of them. She was a Polish-French physicist and chemist who discovered two elements and was famous for her work with radioactivity. She got her love of science from her father, a physics and mathematics teacher. She moved to Paris to further her education and there met her future husband, Pierre Curie, and took his place at Sorbonne when he passed away as the first women to hold that position. Those were not the only thing she accomplished as a female scientist in the 1800’s. Marie paved the way for many more female scientists in the future.
Many women have had an impact on science over the years and their accomplishments tend to be underappreciated by the public eye. Often times, there are important people that have made a significant impact on the world that we have today that do not receive the credit and attention that they deserve for their accomplishments. Recognizing and acknowledging people that have made an impact on society now and in the past, is an important part of learning about history and the accomplishments of the past.
As hard as is it is today for women to succeed in the sciences, one must give kudos to those that came before us. These are the women that paved the way for today's generation of women scientists. One such woman is Rosalind Elsie Franklin, a chemist who had a great impact on the modern day field of genetics.
Benjamin Franklin continues to be revered in our present age as a man of incredible political, scientific, and literary talents. He’s also known as key observer of man with all his strengths and weaknesses. In this letter to Madam Brillon, Franklin stresses one key point with various techniques and rhetorical devices.
The discovery of deoxyribonucleic acid, more commonly known as DNA, has been the foundation for much scientific work. This fundamental discovery was credited to James Watson and Francis Crick. Many people believe that another person, Rosalind Franklin, also played a large role in the research. How much did she contribute to the discovery? Why is her name left unrecognized? This paper will discuss her part in the search and whether her name should appear next to Watson's and Crick's as the co-discoverer of DNA.
Nonetheless, today, she is more and more acknowledged – especially due to the recent rise of passionate feminists. Also, historian’s and archivist’s work over the past few decades has promoted Franklin and she has become more widely known. Numerous books and articles have been written about Franklin and the lack of credit she has received. In 2004, a university in Illinois, US, was renamed to Rosalind Franklin University of Medicine and Science in dedication to Rosalind Franklin. The university states “One thing is certain - she died without ever knowing the true magnitude of her contribution to the science of life”. Finally, one could say Watson actually did Franklin a favour, by portraying her almost villain-like in his book. Had he not done this, she might had been forgotten
1. What role did Rosalyn Franklin play in our understanding of DNA’s structure? She discovered the double-helix position of the DNA.
The woman who changed science as we know it was never even supposed to even happen except the reason they got the information from her was because she never even knew what was going on when they were trying to figure what disease she had, the doctors took her cells and found something astonishing… they were immortal however the thing they didn’t know about this cell is how to feed it. After a while they gave it the right nutrition and now it’s in many places in the world today,
I believe that Rosalind Franklin deserved more credit than she got foe her X-ray crystallography. Watson took photo 51 from her file without ther knowledge which showed that DNA has a definite pattern and two strands. Watson and Crick used the photo for their own personal gain instead of giving Rosalind any credit they saw Rosalind as below them so they had no issue stealing her idea.
There are many role models in the world deemed smart, wise, and even revolutionary. Although only a few people have the honorary award “role model”, there is however one person who stands out and is is not just a role model, but an inspiration, which is none other than Benjamin Franklin. One of Franklin’s jobs included being a scientist where he conducted many life changing experiments which changed how society thought of science. Science experiments are not simply just for research and tests, but also for inventions, which leads to explain about Franklin’s revolutionary job as an inventor, which lead him to invent a plethora of inventions that is still used today that changed the world. Finally, along with a scientist and an inventor, he was also a prestigious politician and statesman who was mainly responsible for being a delegate who helped sign the Paris Treaty and end the Revolutionary war, which joined the United States their freedom. In conclusion Benjamin Franklin was a life changing scientist, inventor, and politician who changed this world for the better.
Franklin was born into a wealthy family. He was an only child of James Roosevelt and Sara Ann Delano Roosevelt. Until the age of 14, he was educated by tutors and governesses. Franklin attended Groton school for boys in 1896.The other boys at the school were different then him. This school was for boys who were good an athletics and Franklin wasn’t. After graduating from Groton in 1900 he went on to Harvard. It only took three years for him to receive a degree. In his last year of Harvard, he became attracted to
Sam Magg's Wonder Women: 25 Innovators, Inventors, and Trailblazers Who Changed History features an array of pioneering female scientists, engineers, mathematicians, adventurers, and inventors many of whom I was unaware of like Dr. Okami Keiko (the first Japanese woman to obtain a degree in Western medicine from a Western university) and Dr. Anandibai Joshi (the first woman physician) who were actually well acquainted with each other.
Deoxyribonucleic (DNA) is the molecule that hold the genetic information of living things. In our body every cell contains about 2 meters of DNA. DNA is copied every time a cell divides. Deoxyribonucleic (DNA) is made up of two polynucleotide strands. Polynucleotide strands twist around each other, forming a shape that looks like a ladder called a double helix. The two polynucleotide strands run antiaparallel to each other with nitrogenous bases this means that the stands run in opposite directions, parallel to one another. The DNA molecule consists of two backbones chains of sugars and phosphate groups. The organic bases held together by hydrogen bonds. Although bases bonded together are termed paired
Rosalind Franklin’s work on DNA was crucial in discovering the composition of the human body as a whole. Her x-ray photo revealed a double helix structure and she also discovered the A and B form of DNA. She worked through the adversity of being a female in a predominately male dominated realm and made remarkable findings that were eventually stolen. She adapted to a new lab with antiquated technology. Before this discovery, the structure of DNA was thought to be simple. Scientist, Watson and Crick, started with the wrong structure of DNA from a misinterpretation of notes from one of Franklin’s presentations. Unlike Watson and Crick, Rosalind Franklin could explain DNA and how it worked.
