Double helix unlocked key to life By Steve Sternberg, USA TODAY Fifty years ago this week, two brash young scientists in an obscure lab at the University of Cambridge in England unraveled the structure of DNA, the elegant living thread that is the genetic basis of inheritance and evolution. The discovery of the double helix by James Watson, 25, and Francis Crick, 36, on Feb. 28, 1953, unveiled what Crick called “the secret of life.” Interview - Matthias Kroener, Founder & CEO at Fidor AG [VIDEO] It was my fourth EFMA event.John Kirkbright, invited me to speak at “Social Media Revolution and Impact on Financial Services“, the conference he organized for the EFMA in Paris on 19th March 2009.

Cosmology Cosmology is study of the Universe in its totality, and by extension, humanity's place in it. Though the word cosmology is recent (first used in 1730 in Christian Wolff's Cosmologia Generalis), study of the Universe has a long history involving science, philosophy, esotericism, and religion. In recent times, physics and astrophysics have come to play a central role in shaping the understanding of the universe through scientific observation and experiment; or what is known as physical cosmology shaped through both mathematics and observation in the analysis of the whole universe. In other words, in this discipline, which focuses on the universe as it exists on the largest scale and at the earliest moments, is generally understood to begin with the big bang (possibly combined with cosmic inflation) - an expansion of space from which the Universe itself is thought to have emerged 13.7 billion years ago. This is the purpose of the ancient metaphysical cosmology. Cosmology Wikipedia
Science Science[nb 1]:58 is a systematic enterprise that builds and organizes knowledge in the form of testable explanations and predictions about the universe.[nb 2] Contemporary science is typically subdivided into the natural sciences, which study the material universe; the social sciences, which study people and societies; and the formal sciences, which study logic and mathematics. The formal sciences are often excluded as they do not depend on empirical observations. Disciplines which use science, like engineering and medicine, may also be considered to be applied sciences. From classical antiquity through the 19th century, science as a type of knowledge was more closely linked to philosophy than it is now, and in the Western world the term "natural philosophy" once encompassed fields of study that are today associated with science, such as astronomy, medicine, and physics.
