I was trawling for images to use for an upcoming lecture when I came across Professor Larry Moran’s blog (http://sandwalk.blogspot.com/2007_03_01_archive.html), with its image of the authors of the 3rd edition of Molecular Biology of the Cell: Bruce Alberts, Dennis Bray, Julian Lewis, Martin Raff, Keith Roberts, James D. Watson. His blog was commenting on the place itself where it was taken, and how it was not recognized by his students.
Well, I haven’t been by that place at all, and I’m nowhere near as old as Prof. Moran or the MBoC authors, but the shot looks like a riff on the much-copied, much-parodied, music classic:
Well, who do you think look better– Alberts et al. or John, Paul, George, and Ringo ? The pic just proves that scientists have a sense of pop culture and iconography. 😉 I wonder if Alberts et al. listened to the Beatles when they wrote the book.
Wala lang, naaliw lang ako. Di ko era, pero aliw pa rin.
