What I discovered?
I proposed the Bohr model in 1915 which was not completely correct but it had lots of the actual correct parts of the real atom.
In my model, protons and neutrons occupy the central part of the atom called the nucleus.
I said that electrons orbit around the nucleus in different energy levels much like planets orbit the sun.
-This is the Bohr Model in which the electrons remain orbiting around the nucleus in energy levels.
Liquid Droplet Theory: This theory states that a liquid drop can provide an accurate representation of the nucleus of an atom.
Quantum Theory: This theory states that no matter how an electron is viewed, “all understanding of its properties must be rooted in empirical measurement.”

• I entered Copenhagen University in 1903
• I became under the guidance of Professor C. Christiansen, a highly respected Physicist
• I got a Master’s Degree in Physics in 1909
• and a Doctor’s Degree in 1911
• Other from my studies, my ideas became more and more theoretical
• I had theoretical piece of work explaining the aid of the electron theory
• This remains to this day a classic on the subject
• I did some experimental work in 1911, under Sir J.J. Thomson’s guidance in Cavendish Laboratory (Cambridge, England)
• In 1912 I worked in Professor Rutherford’s laboratory in Manchester were he intensifies his electron theory
