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.
