Discovery of the Electron
“Scientists worked with electricity long before they understood that current was made of electrons. The cathode tube was a prime example, no one knew how it worked. Some thought the rays were a wave traveling through a mysterious "ether" which they thought permeated all space.”

Who was Democritus?
“One such person is Democritus, an ancient Greek philosopher who is viewed by many as being the ‘father of modern science.’ This is due to his theory of universe that is made up of tiny ‘atoms’, which bears a striking resemblance to modern atomic theory.”

Thales of Miletus
“The ancient Greek philosopher Thales was born in Miletus in Greek Ionia. Aristotle, the major source for Thales's philosophy and science, identified Thales as the first person to investigate the basic principles, the question of the originating substances of matter and, therefore, as the founder of the school of natural philosophy.”
