"Sun turn me around with graceful motion,
We're setting off with soft explosion...
Bound for a star by the ocean.
It's so very lonely, you're a hundred light-years from home."

- From 2000 Lightyears from Home by the Rolling Stones.

Note that George Pal's 1953 movie War of the Worlds starring "Gene Barry"
featured a Martian fighter plane resembling a chromosome stained for telomere-centromere FISH
(Fluorescence In Situ Hybridization) telomere length measurements. The manTA-ray machine
showed itself the year (1953) that James Watson and Francis Crick discovered the structure of DNA at Cambridge,
working with X-ray diffraction data prepared by Rosalind Franklin and Maurice Wilkins.
George Pal's Mars fighters landed from space in pods of three, and stood on a Tripod in the original novel.
