Do you know, that

“The Little Match Boy” Alfred Nobel was selling matches in the streets of Stockholm as a child. Could it be that his powerful ideas were born from the child’s imagination? As a chemist, he invented gelignite (blasting gelatine) in 1875, and then nitroglycerin powder in 1890. He often said he wanted to create a substance or machine, whose potential impact would be dreaded so much that it would prevent future wars. In 1867 he invented dynamite. He made a fortune, but failed to prevent any war. He funded awards for achievements in science, literature and peace.
