This is a recollection of Henrietta and her cells.
By Charles Booker
George Otto Gey removed and cultured the first immortal human cells from Henrietta.
HeLa cells became the first living cells to be shipped through the mail.
HeLa cells start to become mass produced. Scientists find a way to clone the cells through perfect copies.
HeLa cells get sent to space. It is then discovered that her cells grow exponentially faster whilst in space.
An article is written by Michael Rogers that is about the Lacks family. The Lacks family finds out her cells were commercialized
HeLa cells begin to be utilized in a way that allows intricate research and information about Salmonella, a disease that was on the uprise at the time.
It is discovered by a researcher that HeLa cells contain the enzyme "telomerase" which is the reason the cells don't die
Millions of dollars are put into HeLa cells that are in place help further progress research. Cells can't be obtained without consent, doctors are banding together to find out more about the cells, and the book is published.
