There are certain interesting facts in history that we common people are unaware of. Over here there are two such interesting facts that are known to very few people.

 

One of such fact is THE CHRISTMAS TRUCE-WHEN RELIGION BROUGHT PEACE

Amid World War I, on the Christmas Eve and Christmas day in 1914, informal truces occurred on the western front between the German and English troops.

Christmas united the foes to such a degree, to the point that the fighters from both sides wandered into the dead zone. At first, there was regular shock in the officers about their activities of associating, however later to a great degree strained combat area turned into a play area for the warriors where they traded blessings and seared and hit the dance floor with their “foes”.

The carcasses were given an appropriate internment service as both the sides permitted the other to gather the collections of their dead troopers. The officers at the site ate in the wreckage of their adversaries. Indeed, football matches were composed between the warriors of the two sides.

 

Second such incident is what is called Photograph 51

This episode is one of the extremely renowned ones ever. Photograph 51 is the moniker given to an X ray diffraction picture of DNA, which later ended up being a basic proof in the recognizable proof of the structure of DNA.

The photograph was taken by an examination researcher of Rosalind Franklin, an acclaimed X-beam crystallographer. This photo was given to James Watson by Maurice Wilkins, a renowned sub-atomic scholar without the learning of Franklin.

The photo gave data that was key for building up a model of DNA. The diffraction design decided the helical way of the twofold helix strands. Watson and Crick’s counts from Franklin’s photography gave vital parameters for the size and structure of the helix.

Franklin’s commitment in this disclosure is not legitimately perceived. Whether Franklin would have derived the structure of DNA all alone, from her own information, had Watson and Crick not acquired her picture, is a fervently discussed subject. Later, Watson and Crick, alongside Wilkins, went ahead to win the 1962 Nobel Prize for their work. Franklin passed on four years before and the grant is never recompensed after death, so it is indeterminate whether she would have been incorporated with that gathering.

These unknown knowledge changes our way of thinking about history…….Isn’t it.
