Extract from Article: This accomplished king cobra designed by Ronald Koh was recently folded by orgiami artist Matthieu Georger from a single piece of specially treated tissue paper. The detail is amazing, especially the hundreds and hunreds of scales that individually require multiple folds to create.

Extract from the Article: Crick and James Watson, a fellow biologist at Cavendish Laboratory at University of Cambridge, had discovered the double-helix structure of DNA. In the endearing seven-page note, written clearly but with high expectations of his young son, Crick describes DNA as being “like a code” and explained how its bases—guanine, adenine, thymine and cytosine—pair up to hold together two twisting strands of molecules. He also spells out how DNA replicates itself. “Read this carefully so that you understand it. When you come home we will show you the model,” Crick instructs, before signing off, “Lots of love, Daddy.” Until this past spring, the 60-year-old letter was sitting in Michael’s safety deposit box, in an envelope with leaves of acid-free paper placed between each page. “It seemed a bit of a waste,” says Michael Crick, now 72 and living in Bellevue, Washington.
As an adult, Michael can read the letter and appreciate how similarly he and his late father’s minds work. While Michael did not pursue a career in genetics, he has been successful in another manner of coding. He helped design Arpanet, the prequel to the Internet. But, he also realizes the document’s significance to science.
