How to use "Dynamite" in context?

The name dynamite may seem like a simple term, but it actually has a very complex and long history. The word "dynamite" is derived from Ancient Greek words "dynamis" and "petra" meaning stone and earth, respectively. In fact, dynamite was first created in 1767 by a German scientist, Nicholas Kurtmayer. Dynamite was used as an explosive until the early 20th century, but its popularity really began to take off in the 1880s when Alfred Nobel created the Nobel Prize in dynamite.
