Although he hoped to spend his life as a writer, he soon realized that writing and poetry would have to wait. Alfred began trying different ways to ignite nitroglycerin safely. With the help of his father and his brothers Robert and Ludvig, he experimented day and night, sometimes mixing the liquid with gunpowder, which made it easier to handle. Alfred kept testing until he came up with a wooden plug he could fill with gunpowder. He called the plug a blasting cap. It would help builders ignite the nitroglycerin safely.

Two years after Emil died, Alfred mixed nitroglycerin with sand. This made a paste he could roll into the shape of a rod. He realized such rods could be put into holes so builders could make blasts happen only where they wanted. The rods would ignite only if they had a blasting cap, making them unlikely to explode on their own. Finally, Alfred Nobel made nitroglycerin safe to use. Alfred named his invention after the Greek word dynamis, which means power. But to the world, Alfred Nobel had invented something called dynamite.
