American chemist and winner of the Nobel Prize at age 48. He was notified of the selection naming him winner on 10/13/1993 and received the award on 12/10/1993, sharing the prize with Michael Smith of the University of B.C. in Vancouver. As a chemist for Cetus Corporation in Emeryville, CA, 1983, Mullis began puzzling over a DNA-sequencing experiment one April night. He came up with the polymerize chain reaction that makes it possible to reproduce DNA from minute amounts up to quantities. Mullis and Smith shared the Nobel honorarium of $825,000.
Mullis was a bright active kid, always experimenting with some project. Living on the coast at La Jolla, CA, he was a surfer from the time he was a youth and is an unlikely example of a scientist in his patterned surfing shorts, as well as an unconventional lifestyle and opinions that are not bounded by academic limitations. Open to the possibility of alient visits and questioning the nature of ESP, he says that "Astrology has some scientific basis and probably has done more than psychiatry to help people understand their lives."
Mullis earned his Ph.D. in biochemistry for UC Berkeley. He worked with Cetus Corp 1979-86 and Director of Molecular Biology at Xytronyx Inc in San Diego 1986-88. In 1993, he was awarded a science prize from Japan with a $385,000 cash award. He has been married four times.

- Work : Prize 1993 (Science prixe from Japan)
Natori Moore quotes Jim Hennum, recporter for the Los Angeles Times. When Hennum interviewed Mullis, he asked his birth date and Mullis whipped out a copy of his horoscope.
Marcello Borges writes email 4/28/2003, "The information is in his book, "Dancing Naked in the Mind Field", published in 1998 by Pantheon Books, NY. Here is what he wrote at the end of Chapter 15 (entitled "I am a Capricorn", with no less than 10 1/2 pages): "I was born at 17:58 GMT on December 28, 1944 in Lenoir, North Carolina. You can find more about me from that than you can from reading this book".
17:58 GMT less 4 hours (EWT) equals 13:58 or 1:58 PM has you have below. So it is only a matter of 5 minutes, a case where the reporter may have seen "58" and jotted down "53".
