Alchemy and the Air

In the summer of 1909 a German scientist, Fritz Haber, demonstrated a single chemical reaction that changed the world forever. His experiment showed for the first time that it was possible to convert the endless supply of nitrogen from the air into an invaluable resource that would define the first half of the 20th century.
