What do you know about the Nobel Prize?  Who do you know who has received a Nobel Prize?

The Nobel Prizes have just been awarded.  Alfred Nobel was a chemist, engineer, inventor, and businessman.  He left most of his fortune to endow 5 prizes for "those who, during the preceding year, have conferred the greatest benefit on mankind" in physics, chemistry, physiology or medicine, literature and peace.

Take a look at the monetary amount that Alfred Nobel bequeathed and evaluate the present day worth of that gift from Krona to U.S. dollars and the value of his gift today.
