The Theory of Electrons

An atom of matter is composed of electrons. We picture an atom as a sort of miniature solar system, the electrons (particles of negative electricity) rotating round a central nucleus of positive electricity. In the above pictorial representation of an atom the whirling electrons are indicated in the outer ring.

From the book: The Outline of Science, Vol. 1, J. Arthur Thomson  (1861 - 1933)
