Transcript of Since 1901, the Nobel Prize has been honoring men and women

Alfred Nobel worked at his father's arms factory as a young man. He worked as a Chemist, engineer, innovator, armaments manufacturer and inventor. He was the creator of dynamite. Intellectually curious, he went on to experiment with chemistry and explosives. In 1864, a deadly explosion killed his younger brother. Deeply affected, Nobel developed a safer explosive: dynamite. In 1860, the inventor first started experimenting with nitroglycerine. TNT stands for trinitrotoluene.

Since 1901, the Nobel Prize has been honoring men and women from all corners of the globe for outstanding achievements in physics, chemistry, physiology or medicine, literature, and for work in peace. The foundations for the prize were laid in 1895 when Alfred Nobel wrote his last will, leaving much of his wealth to the making of the Nobel Prize.
Between 1901 and 2015, 103 individuals and 26 organizations have recived the honor. Since the International Committee of the Red Cross has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize three times (in 1917, 1944 and 1963), and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees has been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize two times (in 1954 and 1981), there are 23 individual organizations which have been awarded the Nobel Peace Prize.

quotes
If I have a thousand ideas and only one turns out to be good, I am satisfied.

I intend to leave after my death a large fund for the promotion of the peace idea, but I am skeptical as to its results.

Hope is nature's veil for hiding truth's nakedness.
