Scientist and their contribution in their atomic theory

As everyone of us knows, an atom is the smallest physical particle of an element maintaining the properties of that element. Speaking about scientist and their contribution in their atomic theory, the first scientist who suggested atoms was Democritus. The scientist believed that everything must be eternal. Democritus expressed the belief that there were basic things that always existed, but could be rearranged. He called these things 'atomos'. Another scientist to contribute to the Atomic Theory was John Dalton. He was destined to become the first scientist to come up with the modern definition of atom.
