  • Marie Curie 1867-1934

    Marie Curie 1867-1934
    Discovered two radioactive elements
    received peace prize
    Stated radation linked to atom structure
  • Thomas Rutherford 1871-1937

    Thomas Rutherford 1871-1937
    Discovered nucleus and protons
    Discovered nuetron
    Gold foil experiment
    Showed what an atom looks like
  • Mosley

    Development of Moseley's law in X-ray spectra.
    Moseley's Law justified many concepts in chemistry by sorting the chemical elements of the periodic table of the elements in a quite logical order based on their physics.
  • Neils Bohr 1885-1962

    Neils Bohr 1885-1962
    Develpoed orbital model

    Erwin Schrodinger 1887-1961
    Quantum theory
    Path of electrons random
  • Werner Heisnberg 1901-1976

    Werner Heisnberg 1901-1976
    Developed uncertainty principle
    Showed how you cannot find an electron AND know how fast it is going at the same time
