The Swedish chemist and businessman Alfred Nobel made important discoveries in explosives, including the invention of dynamite in 1867. His products made it easier for workers to blast rock, drill tunnels, build canals, and perform many other types of construction work. After his death, Nobel dedicated most of his substantial estate for the establishment of the Nobel prizes, which are among the most prestigious awards given to scientists and peacemakers today.
