Scientists Manage To Get Picture Of DNA's Double Helix


Seen here looking suspiciously like a hair under a microscope, scientists have managed to capture an image of DNA's double helix structure for the first time, officially ending the era of me being able to claim DNA is actually shaped like little rainbows. Truly a sad day.
The image was taken by Enzo di Fabrizio from the University of Genoa, Italy. He choreographed the scene by pulling a small strand of DNA from a diluted solution and then propping it up like a clothesline between two nanoscopic silicon pillars.​
Man, actually taking a picture of DNA -- that's insane. So is taking pictures of roadkill. Taking closeups of your butt so you can examine it better than you could in a mirror? That's totally normal. I mean I can't be the only one, right?

I always pictured isolated DNA to be more loosey goosey, like protein tertiary structure, wrapping around itself and all over the place. That stuff looks like an exposed dick at the north pole. It looks like an unused slinky.

I swear I read in Pop Sci that this was done in like 1985.
