Louis Pasteur was a French microbiologist born on December 27th in 1882 and died on September 28th 1885. He is most famous for inventing the process of pasteurization. This involves boiling and rapidly cooling a substance in order to kill bacteria, meaning that food can last longer without being affected by microbial growth.

He also developed vaccinations for anthrax and rabies[1].
