Hello there! I am Ernest Rutherford. I am a British chemist and physicist. I was born August 30th, 1871. I died October 19th, 1937. I am called the father of nuclear physics.
Do you know why i am important to scientific history? well allow me to explain. I created the most accurate model of an atom.
I overturned Thomson's model of the atom in 1911 with my gold foil experiment in which I found the atom has a tiny heavy nucleus. Oh it was one of the greatest accomplishments of my life.
My model is a classic mode My model shows that the atom is a mostly empty space, with electrons orbiting a fixed positively charged nucleus
My model claimed that electrons revolve around the nucleus which is not satisfactory because energy is lost by the electrons and they will end up falling into the nucleus.
