    Aristotle

    Aristotle
    Aristotle thought that if you put enough thinking into something you could figure the problem out. He believed that everything was made of the four things. Water, Fire, Air, and Earth. His was 'hyle'.

    Democritus

    Democritus
    Democritus was an Ancient Greek pre-Socratic philosopher. HE believed that everything was made out of two different building blocks. One being the void, and the other being atoms. He said that there was unlimited number of them

    Plato

    Plato
    Plato introduced the atomic theory in which ideal geometric forms serve as atoms, he believed that atoms broke down into triangles. Each elements had their own shape. Fire (pyramid), Air (octahedron), Water (icosahedron). Earth (circle).
  • -6 BCE

    The Alchemists

    Alchemy originated when Aristotle took up an older idea that all matter combined the four elements of earth, air, fire, and water. He guessed that these elements could be changed -- transmuted -- by the action of heat and cold, or dampness and dryness

    “Plum Pudding” Model

    “Plum Pudding” Model
    by J. J. Thomson
  • Henry G. J Mosely

    Henry G. J Mosely
    Henry Moseley was a English physicist who experimentally demonstrated that the major properties of an element. He showed that elements are determined by the atomic number, not how much the atom weighed.
  • Lavoisier

    Lavoisier
    Antoine Lavoisier was the first person who used a balance. He was called the "father of modern chemistry"

  • John Dalton

    John Dalton
    John Dalton FRS was an English chemist, physicist, and meteorologist. He showed the atomic theory by using chemistry. He also had a interest in color blindness.

  • Dmiri Mendeleev

    Dmiri Mendeleev
    Russian chemist Dmitri Mendeleev wrote down the symbols for the chemical elements, putting them in order by how much the atom weighed, resulting in him inventing the periodic table.

  • Ernest Rutherford

    Ernest Rutherford
    Ernest Rutherford was known as "The father of nuclear Physics" He was the first person to discover that there were two types of radiation. Alpha being the first and beta particles being the second. He also found the atoms were basically made out of mostly empty space. It had a mass that positively charged the Nucleus.

  • Solid Sphere of “Billiard Ball” Model

    Solid Sphere of “Billiard Ball” Model
    "Solid Sphere Model" or "Billiard Ball Model" proposed by Dalton
  • The Curies

    The Curies
    The Curies had a element named after them. Three other radioactive minerals were also named after the Curies. Curite,Ssklodowskite and Cuprosklodowskite.

  • Solar System Model

    Solar System Model
    Neils Bohr came up the Solar system model of the atom in 1913.

  • Electron Cloud Model by Erwin Schrödinger and Werner Heisenberg

    Electron Cloud Model  by Erwin Schrödinger and Werner Heisenberg
    The electron cloud model was developed in 1926 by Erwin Schrödinger and Werner Heisenberg.
  • J.J Thomson

    J.J Thomson
    J. Thomson is credited with the discovery of the electron, that being the negatively charged particle in the atom.
  • J.J Thomson Atom

    J.J Thomson Atom
  • Neils Bohr

    Neils Bohr
    Neils Bohrs greatest discovery to modern physics was the atomic model. The Bohr model shows the atom as a small, positively charged nucleus surrounded by orbiting electrons.
  • Robert Millikan

    Robert Millikan
    Millikan thought his cosmic ray photons were the "birth cries" of new atoms continually being created by God to interact entropy and prevent heat death.
  • Robert Boyle

    Robert Boyle
    Robert Boyle was known as “The Father of Chemistry” his discovered that atoms have to be based on a relationship between pressure and volume of gas. His theorem is called Boyle’s Law.

    Werner Heisenberg
    Werner Karl Heisenberg was a German theoretical physician. He made a paper that had the subsequent series in it including Max Born and Pascual Jordon.
  • Albert Einstein

    Albert Einstein
    Albert Einstein wrote a letter to President Roosevelt in 1939, warning of possible German nuclear weapons research and proposing that the United States begin its own research into atomic energy.
