Alfred Nobel a renowned scientist all around the world was my person-to-research for my Famous Scientist Research Project Born on October 21 1833 in Stockholm Sweden Nobel was the third child in his family and was often sick Since his health wasnt exactly tip-top he was tutored at home by private tutors He never went to any Universities nor did he earn any degrees Around 1842 his father moved the family to St Petersburg Russia and took over an explosives factory that would later play a key role in Alfreds life As a young man Alfred Nobel worked at first in his fathers factory but then his intellectual curiosity drove him to experiment with chemistry and continue his fathers work with explosives He became an inventor industrialist and engineerAlfred Nobel had a very interesting life indeed Not long after he began to experiment with chemistry and science when Alfred was about 30 his brother Emil- was killed in a huge explosion at his fathers factory Greatly saddened by this loss Alfred strove to create a safer explosive which he would later become very famous for dynamite It was patented in 1867 Although not his most well-known invention dynamite still made Alfred Nobel very rich and he would use that money later in his life for a good cause Of course lots of other events happened before he died too In 1888 Alfreds brother Ludwig died in France The French newspaper made a mistake and published an obituary for Alfred instead of Ludwig Of course that wasnt good for Alfred since the newspaper also condemned his creation of dynamite This led to his attempt to clear his name in which Nobel set aside a bulk of his estate to establish the Nobel Prize which honored people for outstanding achievements in physics chemistry medicine literature and for working towards peace That newspaper mistake led to the creation of Alfred Nobels most famous creation Other important events
