the great atomic debate

Storyboard Text

  • Hello, Democritus. I am Aristotle and I've come from the future to tell you how crazy your atoms idea is!
  • First of all, there are only four elements: Water, Fire, Earth, and Air.
  • What in the world?
  • Hi, I'm John Dalton from the future! I'm here to tell Democritus that he was right! Atoms exist and they are solid spheres that can't get any smaller than they are!
  • Yep! And you were way off. In fact, you were the reason people didn't believe Democritus for a long time.
  • What?! He was right?!
  • So, I was right? Yay!
  • Another person?!
  • Hi! I'm Earnest Rutherford!
  • I found that the mass of the atom and its positively charged particles are in the nucleus, with low mass negatively charged particles surrounding it.
  • And, electrons are negative particles that travel in fixed orbits around the positively charged nucleus that is made of positive protons and neutral neutrons
  • And I'm Niels Bohr! We're from the future and we've come to tell you what we've learned about the atom!
  • Wow!
