An ordinary cleaning helped – the English microbiologist Alexander Fleming set to work clearing his desk. He hadn’t put things in order for three weeks already, and the cup with the new culture simply had nowhere to be put. Disassembling 40 old cups, he suddenly saw the mold Penicillium in one of them, which clearly outperformed the culture of staphylococcus sown in the cup (the doctors will understand, but we assure those who aren’t – this thing is dangerous). The sloppy scientist didn't finish cleaning that day, yet, on the other hand, he discovered what he would later call penicillin. Fleming was awarded the Nobel Prize for this discovery. But no bonuses and titles cannot express what good antibiotics released from penicillin have done for humanity.
