Alfred Nobel

As a boy he studied at Jacobs Apologists School. He studied with professors Nikolai N. Zinin and Yuli Trapp.

He discovered that nitroglycerin-when absorbed to dryness in kieselguhr, or diatomite (a porous, silicified earth that can be formed into a paste)- could be shaped into sticks that were safer to use and handle.

Nobel coined the new product dynamite (from the Greek dynamis, "power").

Dynamite changed and revolutionized the method of mining, constructing and destroying especially for workers.

Thanks to dynamite, we now can construct buildings on the uneven surfaces by simply just blasting the rocks away.
