Description
 
Fritz Haber -- a Nobel laureate in chemistry, a German Jew, and WW1 hero -- may be the most important scientist you have never heard of. The Haber-Bosch process, which he invented at the turn of the 20th century, revolutionized agriculture by converting nitrogen to fertilizer in quantities massive enough to feed the world. The invention has become an essential pillar for life on earth; some two billion people on our planet could not survive without it. Yet this same process supplied the German military with explosives during WW1, and Haber orchestrated Germany's use of an entirely new weapon -- poison gas. Eventually, Haber's efforts led to Zyklon B, the gas later used to kill millions -- including Haber's own relatives -- in Nazi concentration camps.
