Abstract
A concise overview of the history of chemical lasers is presented. From the vast amount of literature on this subject some highlights are presented. The paper concentrates on the unsuccessful efforts to obtain visible chemical lasers, rather than on the celebrated infrared lasers, aiming to get some insight into the reasons for the failure of the former and the success of the latter.
