Victory in the Darkness

Mind of Zero

Gustaf Dalén ( 1869 – 1937 ) was awarded the Nobel Prize in Physics in 1912 “for his invention of automatic regulators for use in conjunction with gas accumulators for illuminating lighthouses and buoys”.

He was blinded in an acetylene explosion during an experiment in 1912. However, he did not let his disability interfere with his scientific pursuits and remained active in research till the end of his life in 1937.

so his brother Albin Dalén accepted the prize.
