The 1953 discovery of the underlying structure of life's essential molecule is an interesting story of how science works, not from the perspective of theoretical mathematics and logical processes, but from the side of social relationships and intuitive comprehensions that occur before any models are built. The ramifications of these interactions are explored in parts 2 - 5, while thankfully, most of the players are still alive to explain how it all came to be in part 1.
