I conducted the "Oil Drop Experiment" which determined the charge and mass of an electron.
The particles orbit around the nucleus much like the orbit of the planets.
Robert Milikan was an American physicists around 1909.
Rutherford was a British Physicist and conducted the foil experiment. This basically determined that most of the atom is empty space.
Bohr was a Danish scientist, and he discovered that electrons were not randomly placed and they orbit around nucleus.
de Broglie, Werner Heisenberg, and Erwin Schrodinger all contributed to the eventual progression of the quantum theory of physics which leapt off the back of the progression of the atom.
And thats the history of the atom.
