On whether, upon completing their seminal experiment, Max DelbrÃ¼ck locked Meselson and Stahl in a cabin to force them to write up their results for publishing - how the great scientists are always looking to the "next result."
Franklin Stahl and Matthew Meselson invented the technique of density gradient centrifugation and used this to prove that DNA is replicated semi-conservatively.
Matt Meselson talks about the different models that were considered before their experiment.
