Interesting Thing about Nobel Prize

The Nobel Prizes are widely regarded as the most prestigious awards given for intellectual achievement in the world. One of the most admired and respected awards in the world are the Nobel Prize.  Every year people who do notable work in the fields of literature, physics, chemistry, medicine, and economics and bring peace in the world are awarded Nobel Prize. The Nobel Foundation was founded as a private organisation on 29 June 1900. Its function is to manage the finances and administration of the Nobel Prizes

Nobel Prize given for outstanding contributions for humanity in chemistry, literature, peace, physics, or physiology or medicine. Often confused with Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences. The Nobel Prize Foundation gives awards to people for intellectual achievements, like those who have conducted some awesome research, made an important discovery or even tried to bring peace to the world.

The Country Sweden gave all prizes except the Peace Prize, The Peace Prize only given by The Norway. The Nobel Prize Award Presented by  Swedish Academy, Nobel committee of Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences, Nobel committee of Karolinska Institute, Norwegian Nobel Committee.

The prizes in Chemistry, Literature, and Physiology or Medicine were first awarded in 1901. A man named Alfred Nobel, before he passed away in 1896; he said he wanted his money to be used for awards given in his name.  The ceremony came on the fifth anniversary of the death of Alfred Nobel, the Swedish inventor of dynamite and other high explosives.

The prize ceremonies take place annually in Stockholm, Sweden at the annual Prize Award Ceremony on 10 December, the anniversary of Nobel’s death and for the peace prize, which is held in Oslo, Norway.

The five original Nobel Prizes — physics, chemistry, medicine, literature, and peace — were all specifically designated in Alfred Nobel’s will. The physiology or medicine is at the Noble Assembly at Karolinska Institute with 50 members, and 5 Nobel committee members. Notice that Nobel didn’t mention economics? That’s because the Nobel Prize in Economic Sciences is not a Nobel Prize.  A sixth prize, in economics, was established in 1968 by Sveriges Riks bank (the Swedish central bank) and is more properly known as the Sveriges Riksbank Prize in Economic Sciences in Memory of Alfred Nobel.

Each Nobel Prize consists of a gold medal, a diploma bearing a citation, and a sum of money, the amount of which depends on the income of the Nobel Foundation.
