In this episode of Hidden Genius, we chronicle the invention of dynamite and the creation of one of the most famous prizes in the world.
While Alfred Nobel is credited as the creator of dynamite, he is better known for another creation of his, the Nobel Prizes. In this edition of Hidden Genius, we trace Nobel's life from the accidental creation of the explosive through his subsequent creation of the Nobel Prizes as a result of guilt over dynamite's use as a weapon.
