Dynamite change a lot of our way of getting things done. It revolutionized the processes in construction, demolition, and mining as it can be used as a detonating explosive instead of the previous burning explosives. With this distinct quality, it brought about a wide range of versatility to these fields and also provided a new class of explosive. With this in mind, dynamite also help form the building structres we use in cities and towns today. By the use of dynamite, we can now clear rocky and uneven surfaces (such as boulder paths) and use the clearings to build on. It also change the way we took part in war for a brief history. Soldiers used detonating dynamite for a wide range of attack. In addition, newer uses of dynamite has help a great deal of fields such as conducting science experiments, serving as video effects, dynamite fishing, etc. Lastly, it brought forth a great ideal of the goverment views of explosives in general and the dangers of freely selling explosives.
The Nobel Prizes
Another indirect impact of dynamite is the formation of the Nobel Peace Prize. After Alfred Nobel's financial success from inventing dynamite, he made millions off of the consumer market. By the time of his near death, his will was to donate the rest of his wealth (which ranged in the millions), to form an international prize rightfully named the Nobel Prizes. These Nobel prizes were to award the top discoveries within the following disciplines: Physics, Chemistry, Literature, Medicine, and Peace. These highly regarded prizes, still given today, include a medal, a personal diploma, a cash reward, and highly honorable regards.
