Penicillin By Daisy Freeman
Transcript of Penicillin By Daisy Freeman
Alexander Flemming was a Scottish scientist. One day after his holiday, he came back to his lab in London. He found some dirty petrie dishes and realized that one of them had bacteria killing mould on them. He named it penicillin. He eventually got bored of it and left it. In 1938, Howard Florey, an Australian scientist, thought he had to explore this more. He demanded more mould but never found the right mould. Until one day, the local market sent a rock melon with mould growing over it. Within a few years the worlds first antibiotic was made.
