Alexander Fleming's Life
While serving in World War I, he witnessed many deaths from diseases such as Sepsis, or Gonorrhea. He studied more about medicines that would further help patients, but also not harm the patient when using the medicines.
One morning in 1928, Alexander woke up and went to his lab. He checked his petri dishes and in one, he accidentally left some mold in a petri dish.
