Summary
An intense scientific debate has ignited around an extraordinary family living in rural Turkey with five adults who walk with their feet and the palms of their hands. Five siblings were discovered by scientist Uter Tan, who suggested that the handwalkers might be "genetic throwbacks, " offering clues to our early human ancestors. German geneticist Stephan Mundlos is searching for a genetic mutation that could be connected to why early humans first stood upright. The discovery of this family raises fascinating questions about genes, social upbringing, and the evolution of our species
