Nobel Prize Day

Today is Nobel Prize Day. This is the day that all of the Nobel prizes are awarded a ceremony celebrating those accomplishments that have earned the honor.

The history of the Nobel prize:

Alfred Nobel, the inventor of dynamite, is the founder of this prize. When he died in 1896, he had made a will in which he bequeathed his money to a prize which was promoting development of peace and the progress of the living conditions of mankind. He directed that the scientific prizes were to be delivered in Stockholm and the prize of peace in Oslo, the capital of Norway. Norway and Sweden were united at that time and known as the peaceful countries of the world.

Physiology or Medicine- Carol W. Greider

Physics - George Smith

Peace- Barack Obama

Chemistry -  Ada E. Yonath, Thomas A. Steitz and Venkatraman Ramakrishnan

Literature - Herta Muller

I attended the Nobel Prize ceremony in Stockholm, Sweden 25 years ago in 1985 when I was living there as a foreign exchange student. What a great life experience it was indeed.
