Google celebrates Niels Henrik David Bohr 127th birthday with a atom doodle today.
The Google doodle showcases Bohr atomic theory published in 1913. The theory, which became a basis for quantum theory, showed the atom as one with a small nucleus surrounded by electrons that travel in circular orbits.
Bohr also introduced the idea that an electron could drop from a higher-energy orbit to a lower one, in the process emitting a photon of discrete energy.
