Emphasis on discoveries over inventions and theories

.Alfred Nobel left his fortune to finance annual prizes to be awarded "to those who, during the preceding year, shall have conferred the greatest benefit on mankind". One part, he stated, should be given "to the person who shall have made the most important 'discovery' or 'invention' within the field of physics".

It read, ‘Nobelpreis für Physik ihnen zuerkannt näheres brieflich [signed] Aurivillius.’*On that same day, a telegram with the identical text must have been received by Bohr in Copenhagen. Also on that day, Professor Christopher Aurivillius, secretary of the Swedish Academy of Sciences, wrote to Einstein: 'As I have already informed you by telegram, in its meeting held yesterday the Royal Academy of Sciences decided to award you last year’s [1921] Nobel prize for physics, in consideration of your work on theoretical physics and in particular for your discovery of the law of the photoelectric effect, but without taking into account the value which will be accorded your relativity and gravitation theories after these are confirmed in the future.’

Simple English

Every year, prizes called Nobel Prizes are given to people who have done very well in different areas. These areas include Literature, Science and Peace. The Nobel Prize was named after Alfred Nobel, who invented dynamite. For many people, winning a Nobel Prize is a very special thing in their lives.

Prize categories and winners

The Bank of Sweden Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel, sometimes called the Nobel Prize in Economics, was not a part of Nobel's will. It was started in 1969 by Sveriges Riksbank, the Bank of Sweden. Since this prize was not in Nobel's will, and is not paid for by his money, it is not a Nobel Prize. However, it is awarded together with the other Nobel prizes.

Specially distinguished laureates

Multiple laureates

Since the establishment of the Nobel Prize, four people have received two Nobel Prizes:[1]

  • Maria Skłodowska-Curie: in Physics 1903, for the discovery of radioactivity; and in Chemistry 1911, for the isolation of pure radium
  • Linus Pauling: in Chemistry 1954, for his research into the nature of the chemical bond and its application to the elucidation of the structure of complex substances; and Peace 1962, for nuclear test-ban treaty activism; he is the only person to have won two unshared Nobel Prizes.[2]
  • John Bardeen: in Physics 1956, for the invention of the transistor; and Physics 1972, for the theory of superconductivity.
  • Frederick Sanger: in Chemistry 1958, for structure of the insulin molecule; and in Chemistry 1980, for virus nucleotide sequencing.

As a group, the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) has received the Nobel Peace Prize three times: in 1917, 1944, and 1963. The first two prizes were specifically in recognition of the group's work during the world wars, and the third was awarded at the year of its 100-Year Anniversary.

The United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) has won the Peace Prize twice: in 1954 and 1981.

Family laureates

A number of families have included multiple laureates.[1]

  • The Curie family claim the most Nobel Prizes, with five:
    • Maria Skłodowska-Curie, Physics 1903 and Chemistry 1911
    • Her husband Pierre Curie, Physics 1903
    • Their daughter Irène Joliot-Curie, Chemistry 1935
    • Their son-in-law Frederic Joliot-Curie, Chemistry 1935
    • In addition, Henry Labouisse, the husband of the Curies' second daughter Ève, was the director of UNICEF when it won the Nobel Peace Prize in 1965.
  • Gunnar Myrdal (Economics, 1974) and wife Alva Myrdal (Peace, 1982)
  • J. J. Thomson, awarded the Nobel prize for Physics in 1906, was the father of George Paget Thomson who was awarded the Nobel prize for Physics in 1937.
  • William Henry Bragg shared the Nobel prize in Physics in 1915 with his son, William Lawrence Bragg.
  • Niels Bohr won the Nobel prize in Physics in 1922, and his son Aage Bohr won the Nobel prize in Physics in 1975.
  • Manne Siegbahn, who won the Nobel prize in Physics in 1924, was the father of Kai Siegbahn who shared the Nobel prize in Physics in 1981.
  • Hans von Euler-Chelpin shared the Nobel prize in Chemistry in 1929 with Arthur Harden. His son, Ulf von Euler, was awarded the Nobel prize in Physiology or Medicine in 1970.
  • C.V. Raman who won the Nobel prize in Physics in 1930, was the uncle of Subrahmanyan Chandrasekhar who won the Nobel prize in Physics in 1983.
  • Arthur Kornberg shared with Severo Ochoa the 1959 Nobel prize in Physiology or Medicine for their discovery of the mechanisms in the biological synthesis of ribonucleic acid and deoxyribonucleic acid.[3] Kornberg's son Roger won the 2006 Nobel prize in Chemistry for his studies of the molecular basis of eukaryotic transcription.[4]
  • Jan Tinbergen, who won the Nobel Prize for Economics in 1969, was the brother of Nikolaas Tinbergen who shared the 1973 Nobel Prize in Physiology or Medicine with Konrad Lorenz and Karl von Frisch.
