    This actually just happened recently. “The pictures, soon to be published in the journal Physical Review B, show the detailed images of a single carbon atom’s electron cloud, taken by Ukrainian researchers at the Kharkov Institute for Physics and Technology in Kharkov, Ukraine.”

    The theory that atoms comprised everything was first thought of by ancient greek philosophers, and later in the 1600’s by scientiests. However, the first person to truely ‘see’ an atom was Rutherford and his student C.T.R. Wilson who invented something called a cloud chamber that allowed them to see the atoms of gold.
