In general terms, it can be said that science is the human endeavor to discover truths about the world around us. Scientists seek out answers through observation and experimentation. As we discover more and more, we are able to apply what we've learned to develop new technologies and to improve everyday life. But perhaps more importantly, as we gain knowledge through it, we are able to begin satisfying our deep-felt need to know more about ourselves.
Science helps satisfy the natural curiosity with which we are all born: why is the sky blue, how did the leopard get its spots, what is a solar eclipse? With the help of it, we can answer such questions without resorting to magical explanations. That's why you should test your knowledge and learn some more about natural sciences.
The quiz also tests what you know about the Nobel prize laureates. Every year since 1901 the this prize has been awarded for achievements in physics, chemistry, physiology or medicine. It has also been awarded for literature and peace. It is an international award administered by the Nobel Foundation in Stockholm, Sweden.
Physics was the prize area which Alfred Nobel, the founder of the prize, mentioned first in his will. At that time, in the end of the nineteenth century, many people viewed physics as the foremost of the sciences, and perhaps he saw it this way as well. His own research was also closely tied to it.
Chemistry was also very important for Alfred’s own work. The development of his inventions as well as the industrial processes he employed were based upon chemical knowledge. It was the second prize area that he mentioned in his will.
