It was so interesting learning about how great Louis Pasteur was. Not only because he discovered so many revolutionary things, but also because it is apparent that he was a very compassionate person, who really just wanted to help people. He is very admirable for these characteristics and also for just how deeply and logically he was able to think. In particular, I found it very interesting how Pasteur was seemingly able to apply his findings so well. He really was able to take things to the next level entirely. He even foresaw how these ideas could be applied, like how Dr. Alber used the example of his idea that microorganisms may be “domesticated,” which leads to applications of biofuels today. I really appreciate being able to see how these historically breakthrough discoveries are still very much applicable and are even driving science today (pun unintended).
