"..Crick gave his blessing (provided Watson agreed and as long as the window was not visible from outside at night, for the DNA would be coiling the wrong way.).."

"Francis Crick, co-discoverer of the structure of DNA with James Watson, and Nobel Prizewinner, is commemmorated by a diagram of the double helix based with permission on a 1989 Swedish stamp."
