The Atomic Theory Timeline Project 1. 3 Scientists from each time period ... Ancient Greek
Aristotle, 384-322 B.C., Stagirus. Aristotle emphasized that the nature consists of four elements: air, Earth, fire, & water.
Leucippus; Atomism,5th century B.C.
Democritus, 460-370 B.C., founder of Atomic Theory. 466-1700
Nicholas Copernicus; 1473-1543, Feb. 19, 1473 in Frauenburg, East Prussia. Astronomer who proposed that the planets have the Sun as the fixed point to which their motions are to be referred. Also proposed that the theory called The Heliocentric.
Gailileo Galilei: 1565-1642, he discovered with the telescope revolutionized astronomy and paved the way for the acceptance of the Copernican heliocentric system.
Issac Newton: Born January 4, 1643-1727, he was known for the Mathematical Principles of Natural Philosophy in 1687, often shortened to Principia Mathematica or "the Principia." 1770-1800
Antione Baum was born February 26, 1728, in Senlis. He was known for the invention of the Baume Scale Hydrometer and technical processes.
John Dalton: 1776-1844 in Eagle field, Cumbria. He created his own Atomic Theory.
Amedeo Avogadro: 1776-1856, August 9, in Turin. He was known for his theory of Molarity and moleculer weight. He was also the first person to calculate the number of entitles in atoms. 1800-1875
Wilhelm Conrad Rontgen: 1845-1923, southern Rhine of Germany. He discovered x-ray in 1895.
Henri Becquerel: 1852-1908; from Paris. He was famous for his experiments to connection between x-rays a natural occurring phosphorescence.
J.J. Thomas: 1856-1940, from Manchester, England. Awarded the Nobel Prize in Chemistry for his discovery of alpha particles, positively charged particles emitted from radioactive elements. Continued ....
Marie Curiel: 1867-1908, from Warsaw, Poland in November. He found two new elements, polonium, and radium and how to separate them from non-radioactive substances; Nobel Prize in 1903.
Robert Milikan: 1868-1953, from Illinois. He discovered that electrons negative charge; Nobel Prize in 1923. Also, Milikan Oildrop experiments. 1875-1900
