If I make an object so small it cannot be made any smaller I will end up with a small particle and this is called atomos.
John Dalton, 1804
Maybe that old Democritus guy was right about something and these "atoms" are the building blocks of life!
J.J Thomson, 1897
I discovered the electron which is negatively charged and spread throughout the atom, by this model that looks like my favorite pudding!
Ernest Rutherford, 1909
I now have shown the atom is empty space and discovered the nucleus of the atom through my foil experiment.
Niels Bohr, 1914
My bohr model will now show how electrons actually orbit the nucleus and move like waves.
I have discovered the neutron which wiegh the same as protons but have a neutral charge.
James Chadwick, 1932
The three particles are also in the nucleus.
