Innovators have significantly changed our world for the better. They have made discoveries that advanced specific fields of study and aided many people around the world. We owe our quality of life to innovators. In all honesty, innovators seem to have many similarities. Some of the most idolized creationists, Alexander Fleming, Steve Jobs, and Rachel Carson, have countless resemblances. All three of these creationists made radical contributions to their respective fields. They have many other meaningful comparisons as well; however, they also have extremely profound differences.
Alexander Fleming was born and grew up in Europe during the late 1800s and early 1900s. He was one of eight children. His family owned a farm that was run by Fleming’s father until he passed away. Fleming attended ordinary high schools within his hometown, but when he was 14, his brother moved to London. Fleming moved with his brother and attended the Polytechnic school. Fleming scored extraordinarily high on his school exams throughout his entire schooling. He attended St. Mary’s Medical School and then went into the military as a military doctor. After his job in the military, Fleming began work at St. Mary’s Medical School. Fleming began research on how to cure the simple illness he found in the soldiers he worked with. It was during this time that Alexander Fleming made a revolutionary contribution to the field of medicine. While throwing out old Petri dishes, Alexander Fleming noticed that mold had developed on his specimen. He studied this further and ended up discovering a new medicine. His accidental discovery of penicillin may not have been planned, but it has changed the pharmaceutical and medical field forever. Penicillin has saved thousands, if not millions of lives. Without his discovery, people who have had just an ordinary cold would probably be dead. I will remember Alexander Fleming for his extraordinary discovery that has saved and will save copious amounts of lives all over the world.
Steve Jobs was born and raised in California during the mid to late 1900s. Jobs was given up for adoption by his birth parents, but, shortly after, adopted by another couple. He attended high school and then college. After only one semester, however, he dropped out of college and began work at a video game company to raise money for traveling. When Jobs returned from traveling, he went back to work and found his friend Steve Wozniak still working as well. Wozniak was building his own computer and Jobs enlisted to help him. This duo created Apple. This company has made innovative contributions to the technological field. Apple has changed the way we communicate. Apple has brought people around the world closer through its creation of the Apple computers, iPods, and iPhones. If Jobs had not established Apple, people, families, and friends around the world may not be connected like they are now. I will remember Steve Jobs for his...
