Louis Pasteur was born on December 27, 1822, in Dole in France, into the family of a tanner. Louis Pasteur was the 3rd out of 5 children. Those were Jean Dinis Pasteur, Jeanne Antoine, Josephine Pasteur, and Emilie Pasteur. Joseph Pasteur and Jeanne Roqui were Louis Pasteur's parents. At the age of 15 years old, Louis went to Paris to complete his secondary schooling. Then, suffering extreme homesickness, returned to Arbois. Then, he tried again, this time at Besancon, only 40 kilometers from his home. There, he was successful and went on to complete his Bachelor of Science degree at the Royal College of Besancon.


This is a Picture of Louis Pasteur.


Louis gained degrees in Letters and in Mathematical Sciences before entering a very elite college. Louis Pasteur had become a professor of chemistry at the University of Stasbourg.

Pasteur got a Master of Science degree. Pasteur worked on vaccines and studied many diseases. On May 29 1849, Louis Pasteur married Marie Laurent. Pasteur’s later work on diseases included work on immunization to anthrax, a disease that affected cattle. Pasture demonstrated that some diseases were not caused by fertilizing, but by biogensis. (That’s a production of chemical compound, living in an organism) Pasteur had come up with the idea of pasteurization. That’s where you kill the bacteria in fluids. Louis Pasteur died 28th September 1895 due to a series of strokes.


Louis Pasteur had invented a new type of science. He called it bacteriology because he was studying bacteria. Louis Pasteur never shook anybody’s hands. He was afraid of illness. Louis Pasteur had four girls and one boy. Three of Louis Pasteur’s kids died of Typhoid.One of Louie Pasteur’s many famous quotes include ‘I’m at the edge of the mystery and the veil is getting thinner and thinner.” Another Quote of Pasteur is: “I am utterly convinced that Science and Peace will triumph over Ignorance and War, that nations will eventually unite not to destroy but to edify, and that the future will belong to those who have done the most for the sake of suffering humanity.” Another quote of Pasteur is: “One does not ask of one who suffers: What is your country and what is your religion? One merely says: You suffer, that is enough for me. In honor of his work and influential contributions, Pastuer was made a Grand Croix of the Legion of Honor, a prestigious French order. Pasteur’s work also included breakthroughs in the field of chemistry. He discovered the molecular basis for the asymmetry of certain crystals, made discoveries related to the nature of tartaric acid and was the professor of chemistry at the University of Strasbourg.
