December 10th is Nobel Prize Day
The Nobel Prize is five separate prizes that, according to Alfred Nobel’s will of 1895, are awarded to “those who, during the preceding year, have conferred the greatest benefit to Mankind.” Alfred Nobel was a Swedish chemist, engineer, and industrialist most famously known for the invention of dynamite. Wikipedia.
On 10 December 1901, the first Nobel Prizes were awarded, in physics, chemistry, physiology or medicine, literature and peace. It is a day in honor of Alfred Nobel, who died on this day in 1895. In his last Will and Testament, Nobel established several categories of prizes for accomplishments made for the betterment of mankind. While his heirs contested the will, Nobel’s wishes prevailed and the first prizes were awarded in 1901. They are international recognition awards. The Nobel Prize Foundation Prize controls the determination of award recipients, and the annual presentation of awards.
