Dr. Alber Reflection

Listening to the lecture about Louis Pasteur has definitely made me more excited to visit Arbois, France. Pasteur just seemed like a brilliant man. He was able to use his expertise and apply it to a completely different realm of science in order to discover fermentation. I think the slide of Pasteur’s timeline that Dr. Alber showed was really cool. He had one of the greatest 10 year runs where he was able to make breakthroughs in crystallography, discover fermentation, debunk spontaneous generation, discover the relation between germs and disease, and create pasteurization of course. This makes me wonder what would he have done if he didn’t suffer a stroke or if he wasn’t occupied by the Franco-Prussian War. I really hope we get to see his tomb in Paris if its a possibility.
